About People in Need

People in Need (PIN) helps people in emergencies, both in crises of war as well as in areas affected by natural disasters, and in places where it is hard for people to break out of the vicious circle of poverty without support. PIN deal with longer-term problems overseas such as the shortage of safe water, restricted access to good-quality education and health services or environmental degradation. Development cooperation and humanitarian work comprises efforts to help people in their attempts to escape poverty and ensure further development. People in Need often follows up on its humanitarian activities with development projects in order to help prevent future crises and mitigate their negative impacts.
PIN’s Relief and Development Section operate in twenty-two countries, with permanent offices in fifteen of them. Every year it carries out projects worth millions of Euros for thousands of people born in less fortunate parts of our planet.
