Potential Meets Opportunity

We have a dedicated team that works around the clock to ensure that our projects are managed with the highest due diligence procedures in place.

Our Stroy

Human Development Foundation is a faith-inspired charity that was set up back in 2012 in light of the Syrian conflict. Our main objective was to alleviate the immediate dangers which Syrians were facing and to then set up a foundation for educational projects. We have now started working in other parts of the world such as the Philippines and Yemen, but much of our work is still focused on Syrian refugees and their host countries such as Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan.

What our volunteers say about us

I am very fortunate to have been a regular volunteer in the HDF office for several months and thoroughly enjoy every minute of working with them. They are an awesome and inspirational team, extremely friendly and welcoming; and were both interested in what led me to volunteer with them and in sharing their expertise with me. As I was lucky enough to be working at the office when they launched the Yemenade And Penny Appeal during Ramadan 2017, I learned first-hand about all the amazing activities that go on behind the scenes before, during and after an appeal is launched. I saw how hard this incredibly dynamic group of professionals work to galvanize a massive network of peoples and organisations into action at such short notice and then how they deal with the response. This experience also enabled me to meet a wide range of others within the sector, which in turn has been extremely valuable in helping me to develop my self. My time at the HDF is one that I shall always look back on with immense pride, gratitude and fondness.

We regularly ask for feedback and for their suggestions on how we can improve the work that we do, they are the service users at the end of the day so regardless of whether we have distributed food baskets or have opened up a new community centre, we want to know how we are doing.
