About Us

Polish Humanitarian Action (PAH), or Polska Akcja Humanitarna, is a non-governmental organization (NGO) based in Poland that focuses on providing humanitarian aid and relief to people affected by natural disasters, conflicts, and other crises. Founded in 1992, PAH's primary mission is to alleviate human suffering and promote human rights, especially in regions where the needs are most urgent.

PAH operates in various countries across the world, including those in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, implementing projects that address immediate needs and long-term development. Some of their key areas of intervention include:

  1. Providing emergency relief: PAH delivers food, water, shelter, and other essential supplies to people affected by natural disasters or conflicts.
  2. Water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programs: PAH works to improve access to clean water, proper sanitation, and hygiene facilities in communities facing water scarcity, contamination, or poor infrastructure.
  3. Education: PAH supports education initiatives for children in crisis-affected areas, offering safe spaces for learning, psychosocial support, and teacher training.
  4. Livelihood and food security: PAH implements programs aimed at enhancing food security and livelihood opportunities, such as through agricultural development, vocational training, and income-generating activities.
  5. Advocacy and awareness-raising: PAH raises awareness of humanitarian crises and advocates for the rights of affected populations on a national and international level.

PAH relies on donations, grants, and partnerships with other organizations to fund its work, maintaining a commitment to transparency and accountability in its operations.
