Concerning Premier Urgency International Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is an international assistance organization that is non-profit, non-governmental, non-political, and non-religious. Our teams are dedicated to providing for the basic needs of citizens who have been marginalized and excluded, or affected by natural catastrophes, armed conflicts, and economic failures. Our goal is to give urgent support to those who have been uprooted to aid them in regaining their dignity and independence.

PUI specializes in ten intervention areas and sets itself apart by using an integrated approach to its response. This approach seeks to recognize and comprehend the needs of everyone impacted by a catastrophe. Our teams unite to provide a swift, worldwide response to the essential requirements of communities impacted by humanitarian emergencies, assisting them in reclaiming their autonomy and dignity.

PUI in Ethiopia: Despite not being actively operating in Ethiopia, PUI has long-standing ties to the area of East Africa, notably in Sudan and South Sudan.

Following the conflict in north Ethiopia, which broke out in 2020, and news of the ongoing drought, which is affecting millions of people’s lives and livelihoods across Ethiopia, PUI decided to do its part to help with the humanitarian needs brought on by both man-made and natural disasters. To be able to function lawfully in the nation, PUI has been registered with the FDRE Authority for Civil Society Organisation (ACSO) since June 22, 2022. Since then, PUI has conducted needs assessments in various parts of the nation to determine gaps and determine where to focus its efforts for the best outcomes. As a result of some of these evaluations, PUI has chosen to carry out its first project in the Afar area, where the current drought and the effects of the previous violence have had a considerable impact on the local people.

PUI is also actively seeking new partners to help it react to the humanitarian needs in other parts of the nation that have been devastated by natural catastrophes and armed conflict.
