About us

International Aid Services (IAS) is an International Non-Governmental Organization (INGO) abiding by Christian values. Its vision is to see a ‘godly transformed society’ and the mission is ‘to save lives, promote self-reliance and dignity through human transformation, going beyond relief and development’. Founded in 1989 with the purpose of assisting conflict affected populations in South Sudan it now runs programs in over 10 countries in three key operating regions: SAHEL, Greater Horn of Africa and Eastern Africa. IAS also supports partners and projects in other countries outside these regions. The programmes are supported by four offices in Europe and the United States. The international Head Office is located in Stockholm, Sweden.

The expansion of IAS has always been driven by need, injustice and that no one else is responding to the needs of the population. The foundation for the growth has been our core values of missions, integrity, relational leadership and team work, empathy (compassion) and equality.

With this campaign we wish to continue to build on this foundation. We will continue to serve the unreached and underprivileged population. We will continue to stay true to our calling and mandate. We will sustain what we have meanwhile we continue to expand and grow into assisting populations in other regions. We want to be fit for purpose. But we need your help.
