Our Profile

The People in Need organization was established in 1992 by a group of Czech war correspondents who were no longer satisfied with merely relaying information about ongoing conflicts and began sending out aid.

It gradually became established as a professional humanitarian organization striving to provide aid in troubled regions and support adherence to human rights around the world.

Throughout the 25 years of its existence, People in Need has become one of the biggest non-profit organizations in Central Europe.

In addition to humanitarian aid and human rights, it now also targets education and helps people living in social exclusion.
