“Who will lend Allah a good loan so that he can increase it many times?” – Qur’an 2:245
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.
