Islamic Relief aims to be the first on the ground when disaster strikes, providing emergency relief and helping those affected immediately. When floods, droughts or earthquakes happen, we are there. We aim to provide life-saving aid such as food, water, shelter, medicine and other essential items to families who have lost everything.
We also run longer-term projects to support vulnerable communities, helping to build resilience and lift families out of poverty. We help communities to better protect themselves against recurrent challenges such as drought and floods, and we provide life changing services such as healthcare, water, sanitation and hygiene. Our livelihoods and education projects empower people to escape poverty and build brighter futures.
Our ‘Where Most Needed’ fund helps ensure we have the means needed to support those in desperate need of help.
Close to the communities we serve, we work hard to understand their culture and needs and gain their trust. Our proximity means we can often work in areas that other organisations cannot access and that we’re well-placed to identify those most in need or at risk.
Many of our vital projects across the globe are unable to take place or progress without sufficient funds. Our ‘Where Most Needed’ fund helps ensure that we have the support available for the most urgent and beneficial projects.
By donating to Where Most Needed, you are helping to support some of the world’s most vulnerable members and those most in need of help.
Through all of our projects, our aim is to provide a lifeline for those in need, to help lift communities out of poverty, and empower them to become self-reliant.
Established in 1984, we now work in over 45 countries helping individuals, families and communities through emergency response and development projects.

The high quality and impact of our work to support vulnerable communities was recognised at the Third Sector Awards in 2022, where we received the ‘Charity of the Year’ Award.
