ZOA Code of Conduct

ZOA provides relief to people affected by conflict or natural disasters. We contribute to a new perspective of hope in which people work together for a promising future in dignity and mutual trust. Together with the affected communities, we work on the recovery of their livelihoods.

ZOA has defined four core values that guide our collective actions:
– We value people
– We are faithful
– We are good stewards
– We serve with integrity
