Islamic Relief has had a bond of compassion and sincerity with the people of Pakistan for 30 years. We began our programming in the country with orphan sponsorship in 1992, followed by Ramadan and qurbani food distributions.
Over the years, Islamic Relief Pakistan has responded to natural disasters like floods, droughts and earthquakes in Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
Aiming to transform lives, we have evolved our programmes to address the most complex issues faced by those most in need. From climate adaptation to sustainable livelihood solutions and women’s empowerment to water challenges, Islamic Relief is addressing the most pressing needs.
In the newly merged tribal districts, we have been supporting returnees with life-changing development and humanitarian initiatives.
In addition, we run programmes in urban areas like Rawalpindi, where we are enabling children living on the street to go to school. In Peshawar, we are improving access to safe drinking water.
Recently, responding to the Covid-19 pandemic, Islamic Relief worked with national and provincial governments to provide health institutions with lifesaving equipment. We also ran a massive Covid-19 awareness campaign in different parts of the country and provided online counselling.
