Emergency relief - Orphan sponsorship - Water and sanitation - Food and nutrition - Health, education and livelihood


Islamic Relief works with communities to strengthen their resilience to calamities, and provides vital emergency aid when disasters occur. It helps the impoverished access basic services, including education, water and sanitation, as well as healthcare. Islamic Relief provides lasting routes out of poverty through its sustainable development schemes. Its integrated approach to progress is transforming communities worldwide. Islamic Relief tackles the root causes of poverty and makes sure that the world’s most vulnerable people have real influence in both its programs and advocacy.


Islamic Relief is guided by the timeless values and teachings of the Quran and the Prophetic tradition (Sunnah), which recognize that people with wealth have a duty to those who are less fortunate.
