Many people want to volunteer or get involved in a humanitarian organization. Unfortunately, going on a humanitarian mission is not accessible to everyone, which is why our organization has set up these operations. Thanks to Action dans le Monde, you will be able to easily get involved in proving its will and its determination for humanitarian action.

The basics of humanitarianism

 

Living a humanitarian experience allows you to discover and feel the generosity of people. Many humanitarians have testified to the great experiences they have had which have enabled them to have a new vision of the world and a new perception of life because they are confronted with people in great physical and moral distress and the awareness of the misery in which the populations of the countries of destination live. it can have a great psychological impact and teach a lot.

 

Humanitarian aid offers its practitioners, in addition to their discovery of new cultures, the possibility of giving aid to communities in difficulty and participating in local development efforts as volunteers. This is also an excellent way to get to know others, encounters that can be very rewarding.

 

But we must not forget that doing humanitarian aid means giving your motivation and your time for people who need it, especially those who find themselves in a difficult situation, by offering them our skills so that people in need can develop.

Why so much motivation?

 

Many young Europeans dream of going on a humanitarian mission for free. They want to go and try the humanitarian adventure on a voluntary basis, so they volunteer with associations or sometimes engage in individual initiatives. Participating in a humanitarian mission, even for free, also allows you to open up to other professional horizons and to understand other social realities. And for the specialists who attempt the humanitarian adventure, the moral satisfaction of having contributed to the construction of a better world is full and fulfilling.

Volunteering: “is an unpaid and freely chosen activity, which is generally carried out within an institution, NGO or association”.

The humanitarian volunteer is a person of "good will", who wants to feel useful and do something for others. It is involved in various and varied fields, such as sport, culture, humanitarian work, health, social action, the defense of human rights, eco-volunteering, etc.
