Humanity First was established in 1995 during the Balkan crisis, delivering vital supplies to victims of the conflict. Today, they operate globally, responding to disasters and engaging in humanitarian projects in 55 countries around the world. The organisation is run by volunteers with diverse skillsets across the world (e.g. operations, expert medics, engineers and teachers) and has access to thousands of extra volunteers worldwide. The charity is based upon the preservation of human life and dignity. Its objectives are to:


  • Relieve suffering caused by natural disasters or man-made conflicts
  • Promote peace and understanding based upon mutual tolerance and respect
  • Strengthen people's capacity to help themselves


The organisation splits its work into two areas:

  1. Disaster Relief
  2. Human Development (long-term sustainable projects)
