Humanitarian Aid and Development

Humanitarian Aid and Development

People in Need helps people in emergencies, both in wartime crisis and in areas affected by natural disasters, whilst also focusing on places where it is difficult for people to break out of the vicious circle of poverty without support. Humanitarian assistance to victims of armed conflict abroad was the initial undertaking of People in Need when it was first set up in the 1990s. Over time, PIN began to deal with longer-term problems overseas, such as shortage of safe drinking water, restricted access to good education, healthcare services, and environmental degradation.

Humanitarian aid entails speedy intervention to save lives, alleviate suffering and help disaster victims get back on their feet. Development cooperation involves supporting people in their struggle to escape poverty and ensuring their further development. People in Need often follows up on its humanitarian activities with development projects in order to help prevent future crises and mitigate their negative impacts.

Our Relief and Development Department operates in 22 countries, with permanent offices in 15 of them. Every year it carries out projects worth millions of Euros for hundreds of thousands of people born in the disadvantaged regions of the world.

PIN is a member of Alliance2015, a strategic network of seven European non-governmental organizations engaged in humanitarian aid and development projects. This collaboration increases effectiveness, both in working in the target countries and in campaigns aimed at influencing the attitudes of politicians and the general public in Europe.
