Solidarités International is a humanitarian organisation which provides aid and assistance to victims of war or natural disaster. For 30 years the association has concentrated its action on meeting three vital needs - water, food and shelter.
Solidarités International are particularly committed to fighting water-borne diseases - the most frequent cause of death worldwide.
