Humanitarian Relief

There are three aspects of the service rendered by the SSIO that stand out: First, there is no overhead for services provided and volunteers use their own resources. Second, services are rendered with love and compassion. Third, SSIO volunteers are often the first to arrive and the last ones to leave a disaster site.

The SSIO has, in the recent past, engaged in humanitarian relief services in Nepal, Philippines, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia/Herzegovina, Indonesia, Italy, Sri Lanka, and Haiti – to name a few. For its timely and exemplary services, the SSIO has been honoured with awards and recognition by authorities in many countries, although this is never the prime objective of the organization or the volunteers.
