Lifesaving emergency support

Often the first to respond when disaster strikes, Islamic Relief provides lifesaving aid to vulnerable families whose lives are torn apart by conflict and natural disasters.

From providing a lifeline in war-torn Syria and Yemen to responding to natural disasters around the world, we provide lifesaving aid to millions of people every year.

Responding swiftly to emergencies, we distribute much needed aid such as medicine, food and water as well as clothing, shelter and personal hygiene items. Families pushed to the brink by poverty receive social assistance and support with access to food and safe shelter.

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 respond swiftly to emergencies and work in areas that other organisations cannot access.

Amid the global Covid-19 pandemic, we rapidly adapted our operations and continued to assist families suffering amid conflict and natural disasters and helped protect millions of people in 20 countries from the devastating consequences of coronavirus.

Our emergency interventions are not just about responding to crises quickly but also help build the resilience of communities, helping to ensure that communities are better prepared and protected when disaster strikes. We minimise the impact of disasters on vulnerable communities through reducing risks and hazards, training them to respond and recover, enabling them to adapt and building their resilience long-term.

We also support communities to help rebuild their lives and livelihoods in the aftermath of disaster.

Across the globe, Islamic Relief is a lifeline for those in need. Donate today to help us continue our vital work, and help ease the burden for those whose lives are torn apart by disaster.
