25 Years of EMERGENCY: A Gamble on Civilisation

“We said to ourselves, “Let’s do it.”

Founding EMERGENCY was a gut reaction, not just a mental decision.

We were born as a response to unfulfilled needs, the needs of war victims. So many people who have never taken part in conflict find themselves injured, or ill, with no possibility of treatment. Since we started, 25 years have passed. And in that time we’ve managed to treat over 10 million people. That’s what we’ve achieved, and we’re proud of it.

We could think of EMERGENCY as a gamble on civilisation. When we roll up our sleeves and try to turn a dream into a reality, most of the time, we succeed.”
