The aid organization Cap Anamur

Humanitarian aid for over 40 years, worldwide.

Fast, unbureaucratic and focused on sustainability.

Cap Anamur has been working in war and crisis zones, after natural disasters, and in various emergency situations for over 40 years. Around the globe, our doctors, nurses and project staff from the technical and trade sectors are in action, providing professional, immediate and unconditional emergency aid.

Our work is fundamentally aimed at creating sustainable structures that improve the living conditions of the people there in the long term. This includes the establishment of functioning local structures, such as the construction or repair of hospitals and schools. An essential part of our work is also the training and further education of local personnel with the aim of being able to quickly hand over projects to the population for continuation.

Helping to live

Responsible action begins with project planning: Our relief operations are designed for the long term and continue to have an impact even after we have withdrawn. During our missions, our helpers always live on site, directly with the people in need. This sharpens their sense and empathy for the special situation and promotes appropriate behavior.

A careful use of our financial means as well as transparency towards the public and our donors are essential for us.


The history of Cap Anamur begins in 1979 with the emergency situation of the Vietnamese boat people in the South China Sea, which Christel and Rupert Neudeck did not want to stand idly by: The birth of Cap Anamur Deutsche Not-Ärzte e. V..
