Humanity in Action Germany has joined the Berlin branch of the association Paritätischer Wohlfahrtsverband. An association of social movements, the Paritätische is committed to the idea of social justice: equal opportunities, the right of every human being to live a life of dignity in which they can develop freely.
Founded after the First World War as an alliance of hospitals, the Paritätische has since developed into a leading association, recognized for its work in non-governmental welfare provision.
In Berlin alone it encompasses more than 760 organizations and working groups representing different aspects of the broad spectrum of social work. The Paritätische is considered Germany’s largest umbrella organisation of self-help initiatives in the area of health and social work. The Paritätische represents its member organizations vis-à-vis government authorities and gives them a strong voice in the political arena. It does so in cooperation with other social welfare associations and committees.
