In 2023, more than 2,650 people with paraplegia were treated at home with the involvement of family members and supported in the process towards independence thanks to the joint work of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and NOVE, Caring Humans in Afghanistan.

We call ourselves NOVE (‘nine’) because the number symbolizes those who desire collective well-being. We are Caring Humans, holding other human beings dear to our hearts.

What we believe in

We believe in the inclusion of the whole society, in the strategic role of women in sustainable and responsible socio-economic development, in the value of diversity, in the sharing of knowledge, and in the creation of a network of solidarity without limitations.
We believe in the possibility of a peaceful and just world, with respect for the dignity and rights of every human being, and the safeguarding of the ecosystem and natural resources.

How we work

The experience gleaned by our members in various fields of international cooperation and our strongly motivated staff enable us to confront emergencies in real time and to successfully implement projects for socio-economic sustainable development. All our
activities favor those who often are more vulnerable, in particular women, children and people with disabilities. We work alongside other trusted organizations, and we limit costs and apply transparency in our operations.
