  1. 1. On 11 August 1994 the four historic Samaritan organisations • Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund Germany (1888) • Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund Austria (1927) • ASF-Dansk Folkehjaelp, Denmark (1906) and • Secouristes Français-Croix Blanche, France (1892) merged to become SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL2
  2. 2. The organisation has now been extended by the organisations: • Asociácia Samritánov Slovenskej Republiky, Slowakei • Asociace Samaritànú Ceské Republiky, Tschechien • Országos Szamaritánus Társaság Szövetsége, Ungarn • Latvijas Samariesu apvieniba, Lettland • Lietuvos Samarieciu Bendrija, Litauen • Weißes Kreuz Südtirol, Italien • Samarytanska Federacja Organizacja Pozarzadowych, Polen • Samariter-Bund der Ukraine Kreisverband Kiew e.V. • Associazione Nazionale Pubbliche Assistenze, Italien Far more than – three million supporting members, – around 130.000 volunteers and – more than 30.000 full-time employees form the basis of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL and the network in the thirteen organisations and countries.3
  3. 3. What was the motivation for the foundation of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL? Since the 1930‘s there didn‘t exist a European Samaritan federation anymore and the historic Samaritan organisations existed on a national level only. There didn‘t exist a European federation • of non-governmental organisations • that are independent from political parties and churches • and that are working in the areas of first-aid training, rescue service and civil protection. Due to several new foundations in the course of the processes of change in the societies of the Central and Eastern European countries the need arose to find an organisational level on which old and new Samaritan organisations can meet on the same basis and cooperate.4
  4. 4. What unites the members of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL? All member organisations of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL • are working in at least one of the areas first-aid training, rescue service and civil protection, • are independent from political parties and churches, • are non-government organisations, • have a democratic internal structure, • fulfill their tasks by the involvement of volunteers, • aim at social relevance and the creation of a self-financing basis (in addition to remunerations) by the acquisition of the greatest possible number of supporting members, • have a full-time leadership and honorary supervisory and leading bodies, • are characterised by the control of the leadership by the members and • regard themselves as an outgrowth of the historical Samaritan movement.5
  5. 5. Guiding principles of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL I. SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL is • an international federation • of non-governmental organisations • that are independent from political parties and churches, • oriented towards the public welfare • and not aiming for profit • that are working in the areas of first aid in cases of emergencies and diseases and aid in social distress • with democratic participation of a large number of citizens as members, volunteers and supporters • and that regard themselves as an outgrowth of the historical Samaritan movement.6
  6. 6. Guiding principles of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL II. SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL is committed • to expanding a network of European aid systems ranging from • emergency first-aid services to emergency aid in response to disasters • on the basis of common minimum standards at the local, regional, national and European level, • while allowing for flexibility at the regional level • involving the participation of non-governmental organisations. SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL regards • first-aid training, emergency rescue and transport services for the ill as inseparable components of a networked aid system • which cannot be viewed from the standpoint of competitive aspects alone if the efficiency of the system as a whole is to be improved.7
  7. 7. Guiding principles of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL III. SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL is committed • to the involvement of non-governmental organisations formed through local and regional popular initiative in emergency rescue operations and transport services for the ill • as a prerequisite for attractive, efficient, self-determined participation of volunteers in the field of disaster aid. SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL • sees the involvement of volunteers as a basic prerequisite for a functioning aid system, • promotes the establishment of appropriate framework conditions for the voluntary work and supports the international exchange of volunteers.8
  8. 8. Guiding principles of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL IV. SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL fosters mutual understanding among all European aid systems through • publications, • expert meetings, • conferences and • exchange programs among the member associations. SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL sees first-aid training for the general Public as a basic prerequisite for self-help in everyday and extraordinary emergency situations.9
  9. 9. Guiding principles of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL V. SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL promotes • mutual projects devoted to humanitarian aid abroad and • the coordination of SAMARITAN projects in the crisis areas. SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL contributes to the development of a European civil society by fostering the growth of politically neutral, non-sectarian, non-governmental organisations in Central and Eastern Europe. SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL considers itself • in matters relating to the development and implementation of European standards for emergency medical care, volunteer work and humanitarian aid abroad • a mediator between European institutions and its member associations.10

  15. 15. What does SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL do to foster mutual understanding? VI. Partnerships of regional Samaritan organisations in Europe enable cross-border social engagement. In a partnership activities can cover the mutual exchange of experiences to the joint execution of very concrete humanitarian and social projects. The exchange of experiences on the level of the local operational groups opens up new perspectives for both sides and is in line with the basic aims of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL to give people in distress – without consideration for political borders - help to self-help. In order to promote this SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL has developed a partner program. Its core is the structured inquiry of interests on the SAMARITAN website and the publication of requests in the SAMARITAN media.16

On the basis of the conjointly developed Guiding principles for voluntary work of the member organisations of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL volunteers will be deployed in this program in different institutions and services of the other member organisation for at least six month.18

This ranges from • the provision of subsidies to • the European competition regulations that have impact on the status of non-profit organisations to • the mechanisms of cross-border disaster relief. Therefore it is necessary • to observe the latest European legal developments • to be informed about the functioning of the European institutions in order to exert influence for people entrusted in our care.
