DCA - Folkekirkens Nødhjælp / DanChurchAid (Danish National Church’s Relief Aid)


DanChurchAid’s aim is to strengthen the world’s poorest people in their struggle for a life in dignity.

Our work is based on a Christian view of humanity with respect for every individual’s rights and equal worth.

DanChurchAid is rooted in the Danish National Evangelical Lutheran Church, but is active wherever we find the need is highest, regardless of religion, gender, political beliefs, race, national or ethnic origins, handicaps or sexual orientation.


We cooperate with numerous local partners, other national and church organisations as well as international networks.

We are a part of the  ACT Alliance (Action by Churches Together) – an alliance that consists of more than 100 churches and humanitarian organisations across the world. Together, we make up one of the world’s five largest NGOs. ACT Alliance works with development, humanitarian assistance and advocacy in more than 120 countries.

DanChurchAid is an independent organisation. Our work is financed via fundraising campaigns, contributions from individuals, companies and funds from the Danish government (Danida), the UN, EU and other bilateral donors.

The organisation has a long-term framework agreement with  Danida, a framework partnership agreement with the  Humanitarian Aid Office (ECHO) of the European Commission, and has implemented numerous contracts with the  EuropeAid Co-operation Office and several UN agencies.

Further details on our cooperation with International donors can be found here.


In Vision & Plan you will find the purpose of our work, our vision for a better world and the values upon which we build our organisation at home and abroad.

Vision & Plan is the framework for all other strategies, policies and plans we develop.

The current version of the Vision & Plan was approved by the Council in April 2010 after a thorough discussion among employees, management and DanChurchAid’s Board and Council.
