  • Mission statement

    Humanity First was established in the UK in the early 1990's, and now has operations in 33 countries. Most aid workers and the management of Humanity First are unpaid volunteers and our administrative expenses are negligible. We are able to deliver significantly more aid value in the field to the funds we raise because our labour costs are very low.
