Non-governmental organization, created in 1999, HAMAP joins in a humanitarian logic of help and assistance. HAMAP activities privilege the long term strategy, in a concern of durability, to assist the populations in the development and the accomplishment of their projects.
However, in times of crises, HAMAP NGO shows a good ability to react, and takes part in emergency and reconstruction actions.
