VSF Germany's anonymous reporting hotline

Whistleblowers are the most effective weapon against any form of corruption and unethical behaviour. Your knowledge prevents harm and protects this organization. 

You do not have to be a VSF Germany employee to use this hotline. This channel is available to anyone who wants to send us information about illegal or unethical acts perpetrated in the name of VSF Germany.

The hotline operates 24/7/365 and is run by an independent, third-party provider. It is designed to protect your confidentiality and anonymity. Please write down the passwort to your case-inbox and stay in touch.

Last but not least: VSF Germany's prohibits retaliation against whistleblowers.
