Humanity First Approach
Humanity First, USA immediately jumped into action to aid earthquake victims by raising funds in collaboration with Humanity First UK.
Donate to help provide relief for disasters such as the Iran Earthquake.
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.
