Our History

From small beginnings...

Human Appeal International was set up in 1991 in a one bedroom flat in Manchester.

It slowly grew into an emergency relief and sustainable development international organisation working across the globe. The agency had a major role in the Balkans through direct involvement in relief work in Bosnia, Albania and Kosovo during the Balkan conflict during the 1990s.
