Norwegian Church Aid (NCA)

Norwegian Church Aid struggles together with people and organisations across the world to eradicate poverty and injustice.

We provide emergency assistance in disasters and work for long-term development in local communities. In order to address the root causes of poverty, we advocate for just decisions by public authorities, business and religious leaders.

Norwegian Church Aid is an ecumenical diakonal organisation for global justice. Our work is carried out with no intention of influencing people's religious affiliation.

To ensure efficiency and create results, Norwegian Church Aid is a member of the ACT Alliance, one of the world's largest humanitarian alliances. The alliance consists of church-based organisations throughout the world and cooperates with organisations across religious faiths.
