Spirit believes that advocacy is crucial to any emergency response in order to amplify people’s voices
Spirit views advocacy as a critical and complementary means of ensuring effective protection for communities in emergency contexts. Advocacy in emergency is a means to implement the humanitarian imperative and Spirit’s mandate as found in its founding document.
Spirit’s humanitarian action is guided by the fundamental humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality and independence, and grounded in the desire for the legitimate and effective implementation of international humanitarian, refugee and human rights law.
Spirit adheres to the principles of the Code of Conduct for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and NGOs in Disaster Relief which are the fundamental standards for all Spirit humanitarian programs. Therefore, Spirit does not tie the promise, delivery or distribution of assistance to the embracing or acceptance of a particular political or religious creed.
Spirit believes that advocacy is crucial to any emergency response in order to amplify people’s voices, to ensure that responses are appropriate to people’s needs and rights and to ensure that they respect humanitarian principles.
It may relate to, for instance, protection, access, promoting good practice of humanitarian and development work, prevention of escalation of violence, conflict transformation and promoting nation/society-building as part of reconstruction and rehabilitation.
