Humanitarian Organisations

Humanitarian Aid is defined as “the material or logistical assistance provided for humanitarian purposes”, and is typically in response to a crisis, whether natural or man-made. The first recorded act of Humanitarian Aid occurred when forces were mobilised in response to the Northern Chinese Famine of 1876 – 79. Since that time, in response to many crises, in many countries, the effort has become a torrent of international endeavour.
