HRIF was established in 1997 with main goal to support people in need worldwide. Especially those who live in an emergency area after war, refugee situation, earthquake, floods etc. We have been involved in over 15.000 humanitarian transports worldwide since 1993.
Our focus is on Gift in Kind (GIK), transport and distribution of aid goods. For this purpose we work as service provider with many relief organisations worldwide.
In short we collect GIK from companies, institutions, organisations etc. Together with local partners we investigate which goods can be used in their distribution projects. We deal with local customs and authorities about import rules and regulations the GIK is distributed amongst children, women, elderly people and other vulnerable groups main items are clothing, shoes, blankets, food, medical equipment, medicines, furniture etc. etc.
The magnitude of shipping and distributing relief goods in emergency and development project is beyond imagination. Receivers of aid, many times told us about receiving aid, is a sign of hope in their desperate situation.
