Ahmadiyyat has been at the forefront of worldwide disaster relief through an independent charitable organization, Humanity First.
Humanity First focuses to preserve and safeguard human life and dignity.
Drawing strength from our global resources, we aim to relieve suffering caused by natural disaster and human conflict, promote peace and understanding, and strengthen people’s capacity to help themselves.
Our mission is to serve disaster struck and socially disadvantaged individuals and families in the poorer communities of the world.
We depend on our individual donors and corporate sponsors for fundraising, volunteer recruitment, and building awareness about community needs to keep administrative costs low.
Our Brief History
Humanity First is registered in 33 countries across 6 continents, and has been working on human development projects and responding to disasters since 1995. These have included the earthquakes in Turkey, Pakistan, Japan and Iran, floods in Africa and Latin America, storms and tsunamis in the USA, Indonesia and Bangladesh, and conflicts in Eastern Europe. Over 93% of donated funds are spent directly on aid projects. With the majority of our labour including skilled engineers and clinicians being volunteers along with preferential rates for materials benefiting from global sourcing, Humanity First is often able to deliver a value of aid many times the value of donations provided.
