To be prepared for the challenges and opportunities of the future, DanChurchAid wishes to strengthen our internal control environment and ensure the highest level of compliance for our collaboration partners and donors. In 2021 DanChurchAid established a Whistle Blower Scheme to complement the existing complaints handling mechanism.
