Since HI was founded in 1982, our work has benefitted several million people in more than 60 countries worldwide.

"Our determination to help the most vulnerable groups, including in extreme situations, has proven its worth. We have earned the legitimacy we need to combat certain now-illegal weapons – landmines and cluster munitions. This same determination drives our teams today and motivates their tireless efforts in around 60 countries."
Jean-Baptiste Richardier, co-founder of Humanity & Inclusion (HI)
