Everyone is a Humanitarian
Project HOPE is looking for committed humanitarians to join us in improving the lives of those facing urgent health emergencies in Ukraine, Ethiopia, and beyond. Whatever your passion and talents, you can help improve access to health care for women, children, and communities around the world.
You can. In fact, the world needs you to more than ever.
Project HOPE has been responding to the world’s most urgent health crises for nearly 65 years. In Ukraine, Ethiopia, Haiti, and around the world, our team of 900 humanitarians strong is improving access to health care in communities facing the world’s most devastating emergencies.
Health is a fundamental human right. But not everyone has the same chance to access health care and live a full, healthy life. Project HOPE is working to build a more equitable world where everyone, everywhere has access to the health care they need.
Because everyone deserves hope.
Project HOPE knows that access to care should not depend on your gender, race, income, or where you live. Everyone deserves quality and consistent health care with treatment from trained and equipped health care workers.
We are working to build a more equitable world for all. By starting with one person at a time.
What Does A Humanitarian Do?
Who are the humanitarians changing the world today?
The gamers, streamers, pledge-signers, Congress-callers, frontline-workers, coffee-shop fundraisers, and mission supporters who make our work possible.
In short, everyone.
You don’t have to board a ship or have a medical degree to be a humanitarian. You just need to have a passion for building a better world and a desire to use your gifts and talents to support a mission you believe in.
Everyone is a humanitarian. And there’s plenty of work to do.
Hope Can Come From Anywhere
When it comes to building a more equitable world, all of us have a role to play. No matter how old you are or where you live, your gifts and talents can support Project HOPE’s mission to build a world where everyone has access to the health care they need to reach their full potential.
Here are just some of the people who inspire us and prove that anyone has the power to be a force for hope—and change—in their community.
Aftab is a community health worker in Texas, helping combat vaccine misinformation, answer people’s questions, and register people for COVID-19 vaccines. Thanks to community health workers like him, Project HOPE is helping thousands of people in Houston and the Rio Grande Valley get vaccinated.
Just a few minutes from the U.S.-Mexico border, Lesly helps operate a mobile clinic that provides primary care and vaccines for people outside the formal health care system. Safety-net clinics like hers play a crucial role in reaching uninsured, undocumented, and low-income communities.
When the pandemic hit and hope seemed hard to find, Ben Higgins began having conversations with thought leaders from diverse backgrounds to determine if hope still triumphs in the face of life’s biggest challenges. Now a member of our Board of Directors, Ben features these conversations on his podcast “Hope Still Wins,” including a recent interview with Project HOPE CEO and President, Rabih Torbay.
