About Muslim Relief Worldwide
‘Indeed, the men who practice charity and the women who practice charity … it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward.
Muslim Relief was established in 1989 after Seeing the rapidly deteriorating state of affairs by Afghan Civil War. A small group of volunteers began collecting money, clothes and medicine for the people of Afghanistan.
Muslim Relief, an international relief and development Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), independent of any political or religious agenda, grew from this grass roots movement and since these first efforts, we have responded to countless disasters and emergencies.
Muslim Relief provides for refugees, emergency relief and promotes sustainable economic and social development by working with local communities as well as establishing long term projects such as schools, healthcare clinics and livelihood programmes worldwide – regardless of race, religion or gender.
