About Us

IMG_20151107_161345WEFA is an International Humanitarian Aid Organisation reaching out to all regardless of their religion, spoken language, ethnicity, race, region; our team is ready to help those around the world in hardship, hungry, or left wounded, homeless or disabled due to natural disaster, or war. Founded in 2006, we managed to reach out to 70 different countries and regions with humanitarian aid in a short amount of time taking with us emotions on humility. As WEFA we aim to work together to develop selflessness and a sense of solidarity through a range of social and cultural events. with no political ambition’ WEFA aims solely to help those in need and is an independent civil society organisation.

WEFA headquarters are based in Cologne/Germany with an office in Berlin aswell.

War, natural disaster, hunger, poverty and unmitigating crisis’ and problems that arise along with those left orphaned, widowed, not able to continue with education or have health issues creep up. All these are things which nobody wants to live, but are events that unfortunately strike us at the most unexpected times. All across the world wars, natural disasters and poverty have made hundreds and thousands of innocent people continue their lives as victims.

WEFA not only carries out emergency relief work or seasonal projects such as Ramadan and Qurbani campaigns, but is also involved in orphan sponsorship and orphanage programmes, water well projects and cataract operations as well as many more. Until today we have shed light upon the lives of over 4,000 people by facilitating for a cataract operation, as well as quench the thirst of all by carrying out water well projects in over 3,500 locations across Africa and Asia and have sponsored over 1700 orphans in 16 countries to ease their pain from absence of parents.

Alongside orphanages in Tanzania and Burkina Faso WEFA has opened facilities in Togo, Bangladesh, Somalia and Pakistan. We have formulated a village ‘WEFA village’ of 26 homes for those affected by the floods in Pakistan, opened up a healthcare centre in Palestine and a Eye hospital in Togo.

Whilst we have been giving attention to the 70 countries of the world, it would not have been ethical of us to turn a blind eye to the problems of the country we live in. In this sense we have developed a ‘Family School’ consisting of seminars and consultancy sessions, meetings, orphan gatherings, charity work and school-hospital-elderly home visits via events such as our breakfast gatherings. This can only be possible with the help of WEFA volunteers which we are grateful for.
