ECHO signs Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA) with HOPE'87

ECHO's task is to ensure goods and services get to crisis zones fast. Goods may include essential supplies, specific foodstuffs, medical equipment, medicines and fuel. Services may include medical teams, water purification teams and logistical support. Goods and services reach disaster areas via ECHO partners.

With reference to the past experience of HOPE'87 to provide emergency support to people in distress as well as post-emergency rehabilitation, ECHO, the Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid, decided, after thourough investigation, to sign a Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA) with our organisation. 

The FPA is the instrument that sets the principles of partnership between ECHO and humanitarian organisations, defines the respective roles, rights and obligations of partners and contains the legal provisions applicable to the humanitarian operations financed by ECHO.

The track record of HOPE'87 in humanitarian aid comprises emergency support and rehabilitation projects in war torn Bosnia-Herzegovina, in earthquake and flood affected Pakistan as well as in flood affected Burkina Faso and Bangladesh.

Currently a Post-Flood Rehabilitation project is being prepared for ECHO in Bangladesh.
