LOCAL CHARITY MARKS 15 YEARS OF HUMANITARIAN EXCELLENCE
This year, Islamic Relief is marking 15 years of dedicated service to the poor and marginalised in South Africa and beyond.
GLOBAL MISSION WITH A STRONG LOCAL FOCUS
Since our founding in 2004, Islamic Relief has been providing humanitarian aid and assistance to poverty-stricken families affected by inequality, HIV, Aids, unemployment and poverty in South Africa.
Our work is centred around providing holistic, sustainable solutions. We prioritise the needs of orphans and vulnerable children. In 2005, we launched our orphan’s sponsorship program to provide assistance to child-headed households, girl children and homes with infants and younger children.
We also provide support to the household by offering skills training and development to guardians so that they can become self-sufficient.
Other services offered by Islamic Relief South Africa include educational and bursary support, food and nutritional support, healthcare and water solutions.
We also advocate this country’s most vulnerable people who are facing issues like food insecurity, poverty, and domestic violence.
OUR 15 YEAR ANNIVERSARY LOGO
Inspired by our National Flag, incorporating our milestone anniversary, our 15 year logo is distinctive, dynamic, energetic and proudly South African.
The multi-coloured logo speaks to the history of our country and our people – the “Rainbow Nation” – and our commitment to non-discrimination and social justice. The colours remind us
that in our endeavour to build a more equitable society, to recognise and celebrate the unity and diversity of our country’s people. The flow of the lines symbolises the convergence of all the diverse people in South African society taking the road ahead… together.
