Introduction to NCA:
Norwegian Church Aid is one of the largest aid organizations in the Nordic region. We are there in disasters and emergencies to provide water and critical assistance to those affected. Together with our international network and partner organizations in the ACT Alliance we can reach millions of people each year and help make a positive difference around the world. We are determined to work towards eradicating injustice, and we, therefore, work passionately with advocacy, long-term development in local communities, and providing emergency assistance.

We believe that people in need must be helped, and we will not stop fighting for a just world.
