Islamic Relief (IR) is an international relief and development charity which envisages a caring world where people unite to respond to the suffering of others, empowering them to fulfill their potential. We are an independent Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) founded in the UK in 1984 by Dr. Hany El Banna.
Islamic Relief envisages a caring world where people unite to respond to the suffering of others, empowering them to fulfill their potential.
IRW was established by Dr. Hany el Banna and fellow students from the University of Birmingham, in response to the famine in Africa. It has since grown into a respected worldwide organization with seven-figure budgets, giving millions of people a lifeline out of poverty and hope for a better future.
Inspired by our Islamic faith and guided by our values, we envisage a caring world where communities are empowered, social obligations are fulfilled and people respond as one to the suffering of others.
Exemplifying our Islamic values, we will mobilise resources, build partnerships, and develop local capacity, as we work to:
Enable communities to mitigate the effect of disasters, prepare for their occurrence and respond by providing relief, protection and recovery.
Promote integrated development and environmental custodianship with a focus on sustainable livelihoods.
Support the marginalised and vulnerable to voice their needs and address root causes of poverty.
We allocate these resources regardless of race, political affiliation, gender or belief, and without expecting anything in return.
