When the Early warning and the preventive diplomacy are not sufficient, or when emergencies are too unpredictable (like the 2004/2005 Tsunami), the Organization conducts its own emergency operations, mainly through associated organizations, which act under the umbrella of the Organization.

These are a numerous group of professional and civil organizations which provide relief under the coordination of the Department of Operations (DOP) which actually performs the functions of linkage between the Organization’s Partners.

Operations in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Somalia, Tanzania, Uganda have been successfully put in place by the DOP delivering as of 2007 more than a total of 1200 metric tons of humanitarian aid, of various type.
