Our Humanitarian Network Contributes to a Resilient Society

Local organisations in countries such as Yemen, Syria and South Sudan know best how to save lives, reduce suffering and maintain human dignity in the long run.
Therefore, our humanitarian work is based on strengthening local forces in some of the world’s most difficult contexts.
People affected by armed conflict, natural disasters and the consequences of climate change often need urgent help. But to access the cause of the crises, long-term work is needed. That is why our humanitarian support is focused on local organisations that are already in place when a crisis occurs, and who remain afterwards. They know best what is needed to build resilience for future challenges.
Humanitarian Interventions with Support from Sida
We began working with humanitarian interventions with support from Sweden’s government agency for development cooperation, Sida, in 2014. Sida has since decided to phase out its support to our network. We continue to train and strengthen our network in order for them to continue their important work after this source of funding runs out. We build capacity in these organisations with a focus on nexus and resilience.
The SMC has recently been granted more than SEK 6 million divided over three humanitarian operations in South Sudan, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh.

Environment, Climate and Resilience
In our international work, we meet many of the people who are ultimately affected by climate change. We are inspired by their ideas and resilience. We work to give them influence on decisions made about the climate at an international level. And we believe that religion can be a key that mobilizes and motivates more people to participate in the green transition.
