Mission, our directors

HUMANA PEOPLE TO PEOPLE On the platform of The Solidary Humanism in the line of fire. From man to mankind.
From the haves to the have-nots.
From the sound to the sick.
From the store keeper to the empty stomachs.
From the liberated to the chained.
From you to all of them.’  

An extract from the charter of Humana People to People:
From People to People is part of the name of our organisation- The people in our part of the world have the knowledge and the surplus to contribute to people in the developing world - with grants, with know-how and sometimes with just a shirt.  ALL FOR THE SAKE OF OUR COMMON FUTURE.
