IDRF helps people in need, without discrimination. Much of work takes place in fragile and unstable contexts. IDRF adopts the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality, and independence as the core foundations of our action.
IDRF relies on local expertise and constant communication with other actors to make sure that we are serving the communities that need us most, and not just the easiest to reach. As a result, IDRF has many decades of experience working with refugee and internally-displaced population, poor local communities, disabled persons, and marginalized groups.
During a crisis, IDRF recognizes that women and children are especially vulnerable to threats of violence, including sexual and gender-based violence, exploitation, and poverty. IDRF gives particular consideration to the unique security and personal needs of women, girls, boys, and men in all of our programs.
