About the Dutch Relief Alliance
The Dutch Relief Alliance (DRA) is a coalition of 14 Dutch aid organisations in partnership with the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA). The structure of the DRA enables participating NGOs to respond to major international crises in a timely and effective manner.
The rising number of humanitarian disasters around the world has placed an increased burden on international aid organisations. The global increase in the number of armed conflicts – and the deepening complexity of these conflicts – is also adding to the severe strain on the existing humanitarian system. The Dutch Relief Alliance (DRA) was established to meet these challenges. Improved cooperation and coordination between NGOs enables them to better respond to major international crises in a timely and effective manner. The DRA members collaborate in humanitarian interventions – delivering greater impact than members operating independently.
The DRA members are: CARE Nederland, Cordaid, Dorcas, Oxfam Novib, Plan International, Help a Child, Save the Children, SOS Children’s Villages The Netherlands, Stichting Vluchteling, Tearfund NL, Terre des Hommes, War Child, World Vision and ZOA. The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) partners with the DRA by funding Joint Responses.
