Respect and dignity - all people are of equal worth, which is why we place respect for others at the heart of what we do


Integrity and transparency – good stewardship of the resources we are given by our stakeholders, open decision-making and regular reporting to our supporters are essential in doing the most we can for the poor and building trust with our partners


Partnership – we do not seek to compete with, or duplicate the work of, many excellent NGOs that provide health services around the world. Rather we aim to work with them to provide resources and services that complement and enhance what they are already doing


Innovation – we believe that new models of partnership are needed to make a lasting difference in the developing world. We are always looking for ways to make the resources go further and have a greater impact


Safety and professionalism – our utmost priority is to ensure that all donated medical resource is safely and professionally handled and reaches those for whom it is intended in a timely manner


Excellence – we seek to demonstrate excellence and best practice in humanitarian response and sustainable development, in all that we do.


Faith - our Christian faith underpins all that we do. It motivates us to care for those in need, and give our best in all circumstances, as an expression of God's love. We serve the poor in health without regard for ethnic or religious background, focusing on where the need is greatest.
