Liberian Civil War Relief
In 2004 Humanity First USA deployed volunteers and relief supplies to Liberia to help the displaced victims of Liberia’s second Civil War. The ongoing struggle for power in the country has left much of the country in turmoil and a significant portion of the population internally displaced and lacking in basic human necessities.
Humanity First Approach
Humanity First initiated collection efforts in the United States and sent food, clothing and equipment for reconstruction efforts. In total, Humanity first assisted 3,756 people in extreme need.
Under the realm of human development, Humanity First has been setting up an IT Training Center and has been assisting farmers with the establishment of a Cassava Processing Plant.
Humanity First is registered in 43 countries across 6 continents, and has been working on human development projects and responding to disasters since 1994. These have included the earthquakes in Turkey, Pakistan, Japan and Iran, floods in Africa and Latin America, hurricanes (Katrina and Rita) , tornado's (Kansas) and wild fires (California) in the USA, Indonesia and Bangladesh, and conflicts in Eastern Europe.
Since its inception and IRS registration in 2004, Humanity First has been focused on spending most of the raised funds on direct program related expenses. As a result, more than 90% of its funds are in that expense category. This is achieved through dedicated volunteers in its management, and program operation teams.
