Our story


In 1992, His Holiness Mirza Tahir Ahmad (May God be pleased with him), spoke of his vision of a charity that would help people out of duty, purely on the basis of need without any vested interest, saying “The scope of services of this organisation should encompass all human beings.”  Humanity First was born.

Mirza Tahir Ahmad

Humanity First was established in 1995, during the Balkan crisis, delivering vital supplies to victims of the conflict. Today, we operate globally, responding to disasters and engaging in humanitarian projects in 55 countries around the world.
