Humanity First Uganda is a charitable trust established to promote and safeguard the preservation of human life and dignity. It is a non-political, non-religious, non-sectarian relief and development agency that works with the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. Humanity First Uganda provides aid on the basis of necessity alone, irrespective of caste, creed, color or religion.

Most of our aid workers and management of Humanity First Uganda are unpaid volunteers and our administrative expenses are negligible.

We are able to deliver significantly more aid value in the field than the funds we raise through volunteers, collaboration and global sourcing.

Our Mission

To serve disaster struck and socially disadvantaged individuals and families in the poorest communities of the world.

We aim to offer sustainable development solutions to society whilst providing and empowering local communities the resources to help themselves. We promote peace and understanding based on mutual respect and acceptance. Through advocacy, emergency responses and efficient programming, HFU prioritizes the health and safety of those most vulnerable.

Humanity First Uganda has been established since 2007 and has been able to respond to a range of modest scale local disasters as well as focusing on longer term projects targeting the most vulnerable and poorest communities in the country.
