Health Works is active in regions where daily life is affected and determined by war, violence and/or disasters. These areas are characterized by a lack of infrastructure, resources and political strength to (re)build public services. This results in a lack of stable housing, insufficient food, poor health, isolation and lack of income, safety and security. Peace agreements are one of the first steps towards social recovery, but such an agreement is impossible without community trust.
At our headquarters in Amsterdam, we currently have 20paid staff, who collectively support 1200 staff members in our project countries.
