Humanity First's disaster relief program serves individuals and communities impacted by natural or man-made disasters around the world following the internationally recognized standards outlined by the Sphere project in ‘Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response’ handbook.  

The Humanity First disaster relief program focuses on disaster readiness and mitigation, disaster relief and post-disaster rehabilitation and reconstruction.  We aim to minimize human suffering and material losses by working in collaboration with host governments, humanitarian agencies, civil society organizations and local communities. 

Humanity First Disaster Response Course

Within 72 hours of a major international disaster, the Humanity First Disaster Response Team (HF-DRT) deploys to disaster zones in which the local, regional and national resources have been overwhelmed and external assistance is required.

Over the years, Humanity First has developed its own disaster response course using HF-DRT’s experiences and industry best practices which has been successfully running for more than seven years now.  The Humanity First Disaster Response Course is geared towards medical practitioners but is also beneficial for non-medical humanitarians to develop skills for disaster management in a challenging environment.

The 3-day intensive course provides delegates with the closest experience to providing care in a disaster environment.  We teach about disaster classifications, response co-ordination, safety and security and importance of inter-agency communication.
