WOODS ASBL works in all regions of African

The WOODS ASBL is unique. Wherever there is need in the world, there is a WOODS ASBL organization to provide practical help, love and support. WOODS ASBL members on the ground respond to emergencies sparked by natural disasters and those created by humans.
WOODS ASBL comes to the assistance of victims of floods in Africa, to people caught in conflict, to those suffering the effects of climate change in Nigeria. There, and in Kenya, Ghana and Soudan, WOODS ASBL is an active, experienced and skilled provider of aid, long-term development, medical and educational services and advocacy for a better, more just world.

Humanitarian coordination








The WOODS ASBL network spreads all over sub-Saharan Africa. WOODS ASBL Africa brings together 17 national WOODS ASBL organisations. They are part of the local communities they serve.

ogether, WOODS ASBL Africa members focus on human development, peace building and economic justice, while practically responding to some of the world’s largest and most complex humanitarian emergencies. These include Darfur, the Democratic Republic of Congo and food crises in the Sahel in the west and the Horn of Africa in the east.

WOODS ASBL Africa brings together highly diverse members from the larger and smaller islands of the Pacific.



Members of WOODS ASBL in the Middle East and North Africa work primarily on emergency response, migration, education, development, youth and volunteering, and peace building.

Their humanitarian assistance programmes have grown following the turmoil of the Arab Spring and increased conflict in the region. Cooperation and inter-faith dialogue are priorities as is response to the threat of HIV/AIDS. Other focuses for WOODS ASBL include improving bilateral partnerships, investing in programmes for young people and creating more coherence around the issue of migration.

We can’t help everyone,
but everyone can help someone
