Humanity First is a humanitarian organization that has sent huge consignments of non-perishable food, clothing, and medicine to many countries including Bosnia, Kosovo, Sierra leone, Liberia, & Tanzania. Physicians belonging to the Ahmadiyya Medical Association, USA have volunteered their time to go to the worn torn countries to provide urgent medical help and to perform eye surgeries.
The Community is actively providing help to the needy and the poor in Third World countries. It also provides assistance to victims of natural or man made disasters. After the devastating earthquake in Turkey in August 1999, which took the lives of 15,000 people, the Community gave large sums of donations to the Turkish government. Ahmadi youths have been at the forefront in giving blood donations in many countries of the world like Canada, Nigeria, Indonesia, & Pakistan. In Rabwah a permanent blood donation center is established for this purpose.
It is worthy of note that in 1985 one thousand Indonesian Ahmadi ladies donated their eyes. The opening ceremony of Noor Eye Donor Bank took place on November 20th, 2000 in Rabwah with branches in Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi. Ahmadi eye specialists and volunteers of Khudam al-Ahmadiyya operate the Eye Bank.
