Challenge

Sometimes the larger aid agencies lack the local knowledge to be effective on the ground. People First is able to work directly with local people and genuine grass roots organisations and provide them with the assistance they need. We need urgently to install deep water handpumps, provide new livestock,help repair damaged houses,and help expand preventative health care programmes. Blankets and medicines are still needed.

Solution

People First a local organisation is uniquely placed to ensure aid and assistance actually reaches those who are in the greatest need. The priorities are clean water, preventative health care, housing and an opportunity for victims to earn an income

Long-Term Impact

Of course this is primarily an humanitarian appeal. But through education about new organic farming methods and the constructive involvement of committed local organisations a framework can be built for positive and lasting change
