An uncompromising commitment
“The first response to human suffering must be solidarity.” SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL was born on this idea in 1980. Since then, our humanitarian commitment has never wavered. Specialized in access to drinking water, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL teams fight every day to access and help those whose health or even their lives are threatened. A dignified and vital humanitarian aid, provided in person and without any other consideration than that of needs, to more than 4 million people each year, who often suffer off radar, far from political or media attention: in Syria, Yemen, Myanmar, the Central African Republic, the DR Congo, Nigeria…Solidarites.org
DE VOS PROPRES YEUX
Involved in some fifteen countries, our 2,000 aid workers witness the injustice of wars and natural disasters on a daily basis, but also the courage shown by humans.
It is from this duty to bear witness that “With Your Own Eyes” was born.
The first humanitarian web-series takes you, through the eyes of a celebrity, into the field of the most severe crises. To meet those who have to face them, and the humanitarian workers who support them.
An adventure lived up close with our teams in the field, as close as possible to the needs.
In season 1 of With Your Own Eyes, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL took singer Féfé to northeastern Nigeria, his country of origin.
On the ground, he shares the daily life of our teams of aid workers, struggling every day to gain access to the most vulnerable people and to bring them drinking water. At their side, he will witness the courage of families confronted with war, and the mothers who try desperately to protect their children from hunger, diseases such as cholera and the lack of water.
This overwhelming experience for Féfé, whose smiles and humanity are spread all over the first season of this humanitarian web-series created by SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL.
Fighting cholera and malnutrition, particularly among children under five, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL teams equip health and nutrition centres with sanitation and water treatment systems. They intervene as well in emergency, able to deploy in the areas of Maiduguri, Monguno, Ngala or Dikwa, as in the longer term, rehabilitating water points, building latrines and treating water. The families, who are crammed in unhealthy camps, can thus protect themselves against water-borne diseases and have decent hygiene conditions.
