4.1.1 History of Premiere Urgence:

Premiere Urgence was founded in 1992, during the war in the former Yugoslavia, in order to organize a supplies convoy to be sent out to populations in the area that were under siege. The generosity of its donors at the same time encouraged the founders to form a permanent association to be a formal organization to help aid victims.
The organization born at this time was composed of a group of volunteers and was exclusively focused on emergency aid actions. It was named Premiere Urgence.
Since its foundation, Premiere Urgence has been involved in emergency aid actions on over 34 different countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Its actions have included reconstruction projects in Nicaragua in 1998, in the wake of Hurricane Mitch, work in Kosovo in 1999 to help refugees fleeing the bombings, actions in Iraq both during and after the war to support the country’s hospital facilities, and many more. In 2004, Premiere Urgence teams were at work in Chad to help Sudanese refugees fleeing the conflict in Darfur.
