In June 2012, the Syrian refugee crisis reached its peak in Lebanon. Immediately, thirty humanitarian non-governmental organizations felt the need to coordinate their humanitarian efforts under one strong umbrella, thus paving the way for the Union of Relief and Development Associations to be born.

URDA provides its services through seven different humanitarian programs:

  • Relief
  • Shelter
  • Healthcare
  • Education
  • Protection
  • Development 
  • Sponsorship


Our Vision

We aspire to become the safest refuge for all the disadvantaged individuals in Lebanon. Working to the highest of international professional standards, we thrive to serve as a role model in sustainable humanitarian actions, and more essentially, we reinforce a human development system that would lead to building a renewed civil society across Lebanon.


Our Mission

We commit to assisting and nurturing human beings regardless of age, race, gender, nationality, faith or political affiliation. Whether we intervene in disaster relief or sustainable development actions, we serve both underserved Lebanese citizens as well as Palestinian and Syrian refugee communities to the highest international, professional, and ethical standards.


Our Values

We hold our values deeply as a true reflection of who we are as a union. Such values inform our decision making and underpin all that we do.

  • Responsibility
  • Respect
  • Professionalism
  • Neutrality
  • Transparency
