Every day, the Federal Agency for Technical Relief is active in Germany and across the world. Altogether, the voluntary experts commit more than one million hours per year to civil protection. On the following pages, you can find information about the activities of THW.
Approximately six months after it was opened, about 15,000 Syrian civil war refugees live in Camp al Azraq in Jordan. The work of the Federal Agency for Technical Relief in the areas of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) is making progress, whilst more and more people are arriving at the camp.
In the last few days, the two reconnaissance teams from THW returned from West Africa to Germany. On behalf of the Federal Government, since the beginning of October, they had investigated on site how THW can support the fight against the Ebola epidemic.
In view of the approaching winter in the Ukraine and the suffering of many people, above all in the east of the country, Germany is delivering further support. THW supported the aid supply transport of the Federal Government, which comprised the contents of 112 lorries.
As a partner in civil protection in Germany, THW assists people after catastrophes and accidents. The Federal Agency performs its legal mission not only in Germany but also during operations across the world in more than 100 countries now.
