The difference we make together

For 40 years, Humanity & Inclusion's donors have made it possible for staff worldwide to stamp out exclusion, provide specific and general aid during emergencies, protect civilians from explosive weapons, and so much more.

Thanks to individual supporters just like you, people with disabilities and people living in situations of extreme vulnerability are able to live in dignity in 60 countries impacted by poverty and exclusion, conflict, and disaster.

In addition to our amazing donors, we rely on the dedication of our 5,072 staff worldwide, including 4,241 local staff operating our programs on the ground.

In 2023, we ran 446 projects in 59 countries. Since HI was founded in 1982, our work has reached millions of people worldwide.
