Humanity First UK Telethon 2020

1 October 2020

Humanity First is an International Aid Agency that provides aid and assistance to those in need irrespective of race, religion or politics. It was established in 1995, during the Balkan crisis, delivering vital supplies to victims of the conflict. Today, it operates globally, responding to disasters and engaging in humanitarian projects in 55 countries around the world.

In response to COVID19 pandemic response, Humanity First has a number of initiatives in place including mobilising volunteers to help the vulnerable isolated at home and the homeless, hand washing points at bus stops, guidance posters and videos on symptoms and staying safe. We are also producing our own hand sanitising gel for small scale free distribution. Read Humanity First’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) response HERE.

On 19 September 2020 Humanity First UK held a Telethon to raise funds for needy causes.

Mr Mansoor Clarke one of the hosts said “We raised over £81,500 in just a few short hours! Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to the fantastic projects around the world.

A variety of guests were invited to speak during the Telethon and the good work being done at the Humanity First Foodbank in Mirfield, West Yorkshire (pictured below) was also shown.
