The Hague is the international city of Peace and Justice. The Humanity Hub is at the heart of this unique ecosystem, providing a home for organizations striving for a more peaceful and just world and acting as a catalyst for collaboration.

They support humanitarian organizations with access to information and resources they need to deliver vital assistance effectively. This mission helps ensure that their wide range of humanitarian aid, including food, water and sanitation, medical assistance and shelter, benefits the people who need it most.
