The Workers` Samaritan Federation (ASB) operates as an aid and welfare organisation with 16 Land Associations and 227 branches at regional, ditsrict and local level throughout Germany. Since its foundation in 1888, ASB has stood for continuity and reliability as a politically and denominationally independent federation. Over 23,000 full-time staff as well as over 12,500 staff working as volunteers ensure quality in areas such as disaster prevention and emergency management, rescue services and social services. With its first international mission in 1921, Foreign Aid was to become a firm component of the federation, with humanitarian and democratic principles forming the basis of our activities.
