Responsible action starts with project planning:

Cap Anamur relief actions are provided in different countries worldwide and are designed to be long-term. Our projects connect to possibly existing local structures and build on cooperation with the local people. Typically, projects are handed over to the population as soon as possible to be continued locally. This way our engagement remains continuously effective even after our withdrawal and new capacities are freed for our missions.
