Welcome to AMICA e.V.

25 years for women and girls in crisis regions

The international aid organization AMICA e.V. was founded in Freiburg on the 1st of March, 1993. Our work began during the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina when it became clear that violence against women and girls was being used as a strategic weapon of war against the civilian population.




For several years AMICA e.V. organized transports, delivering humanitarian relief to the region. In Tuzla we opened the first support center for women and children in crisis regions in 1994. Today, our organization works in countries such as Libya, Lebanon and Ukraine.

Empowering women to lead self-determined lives is central to our work. Sustainable support for women in crisis regions is recognized as a crucial part of building a lasting peace - For a society to heal, women's voices need to be heard in peace and reconciliation processes.
