Islamic Relief Worldwide
As an independent humanitarian and development organisation, Islamic Relief has been serving humanity for 35 years. With an active presence in over 40 countries across the globe, we strive to make the world a better and fairer place for the three billion people still living in poverty. Our projects provide poor people with access to vital services. We protect communities from disasters and deliver life-saving emergency aid. We provide lasting routes out of poverty, and empower vulnerable people to transform their lives and their communities. Our global family includes national offices, affiliated partners and field offices. We also own a subsidiary company called TIC International which raises funds for our work by collecting and recycling clothing. It was set up in 1993 following an influx of clothing donations in the aftermath of numerous emergency appeals.
We believe the protection and well-being of every life is of paramount importance and we shall join with other humanitarian actors to act as one in responding to suffering brought on by disasters, poverty and injustice.
In responding to poverty and suffering, our efforts are driven by sincerity to God and the need to fulfil our obligations to humanity.
Our actions in tackling poverty are marked by excellence in our operations and the conduct through which we help the deserving people we serve.
Social Justice (Adl)
Our work is founded on enabling people and institutions to fulfil the rights of the poor and vulnerable. We work to empower the dispossessed towards realising their God-given human potential and develop their capabilities and resources.
We uphold our duty of custodianship over Earth and its resources, and the trust people place in us as a humanitarian and development practitioner to be transparent and accountable.
