History

Humanity First started formally as a registered charity in 1994 in the U.K. Since its inception, HF has responded to several disasters and served hundreds of thousands of victims in various affected communities. Soon, the organization’s scope of operations expanded beyond disaster relief to several sustainable human development projects and initiatives around the world.

Today, Humanity First is registered in 43 countries across 6 continents. Its operations are primarily funded by grass root donations from individuals, corporate gift matching, and various other grants. The dedicated volunteers of Humanity First are the force behind the good work that the organization delivers, who bring their professional industry experience to the benefit of the affected communities. It also leverages preferential rates for relief equipment, logistics, and other needed supplies benefiting from global sourcing.
