#LeaveNoOneBehind acts wherever states fail, people are left behind or their rights are broken. We provide infrastructure to various civil society projects and step in with small agile teams even when structures are lacking.
In addition to our own projects, we have been able to financially support over 100 partner organizations in recent years. An overview of the projects can be found here: https://support.kabulluftbruecke.de/projekte/
We are currently running the following projects ourselves with small teams. If you want to help us to do this work sustainably in the future, you can donate here.
LNOB support structure
The LNOB support structure sees itself predominantly as a support for a civil society movement that advocates for a different asylum policy. A small full-time team provides support to progressive partner organizations through an administrative infrastructure, in organizational development or through joint fundraising campaigns.
The Kabul Airlift Initiative works to evacuate vulnerable people from Afghanistan. Donations are used to organize charter flights, land evacuations and the reception of people in Germany. In the first year since the Taliban took power, we were able to help 2713 people leave Afghanistan safely and legally.
The LNOB Ukraine Info Hub works on the structured expansion of humanitarian aid for our partner organizations and the civilian population in Ukraine. In cooperation with various German organizations, we acquire donations in kind and financial donations in Germany in order to provide sustainable support to organizations and platforms in Ukraine and the border regions. This involves, for example, the delivery of larger volumes of food, hygiene articles and medicines.
LNOB TEAM GREECE
Due to the extremely confusing and chaotic situation on Lesbos after the fire of the Moria camp, Civilfleet-Support e.V. decided to set up a small and agile team on Lesbos. This ensured that the collected donations reach the people and partner organizations quickly and efficiently. Since then, a structure has been created in cooperation with partner organizations, which today runs a community center together with refugees and organizes, for example, various distributions of donations in kind of clothing, hygiene items and food packages.
The Safe Passage Foundation Fund finances the work of smaller organizations and projects to support people on the run, including, for example, practical humanitarian aid or legal advice. A portion of donations received by LeaveNoOneBehind is directed to the Safe Passage Foundation. Funds are allocated by a rotating panel of volunteer representatives from human rights and sea rescue organizations. This has various advantages: High expertise, different perspectives due to different work focuses as well as legal certainty due to the administrative work of GLS-Treuhand.
The Civil Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (civilMRCC) is a coordination and documentation platform for emergencies and hazardous situations in the Mediterranean Sea. The civil MRCC aims to promote more efficient communication between the many different organizations and networks involved in search and rescue operations and, through a geo-information system, to pool information and thus contribute to better coordination of maritime emergencies.
