Samusocial International values
Samusocial International Egypte implements Samusocial International’s charter based on the following core values:
Dignity : a moral status inherent to any human being. No force or situation should deprive anyone from this dimension, this manifestation of humanity. In all times, one should do everything to preserve, maintain and secure it.
Solidarity : health and social institutions, protection mechanisms, surges of compassion and natural empathy, all exist with the aim to share, as a duty, caring for others and to try, under any circumstances, to help others — within the remit of individual and collective capacities.
Citizenship :having rights and duties within the society to which one belongs. Citizenship is secured by universal human rights..
