To empower those in need


Islamic Help is a UK-registered charity delivering sustainable solutions that empower people in need. Our work is underpinned by our core values – honesty, transparency, integrity and accountability




Islamic Help was started in 2003 by a small group of volunteers wanting to make a difference. Since then we have worked in more than 20 countries and have offices across the world. Islamic Help has grown rapidly over the last 17 years and today stands as a reputable, respected and well-recognised charity worldwide, having empowered over 1 million people in 2019 alone.


Following an earthquake in South-Asia, nearly 3 million people were left homeless, with a tragic death toll of 75,000. Islamic Help were among the first on the ground and immediately set up 5 major relief camps, supporting thousands of people across the worst affected regions. We also established 8 tented villages and erected over 2,200 shelters.


By 2007, Islamic Help was helping to empower people globally, with a strong presence in Bangladesh. When cyclone Sidr hit, it affected 6.4 million people, killing 3,300. Islamic Help provided emergency relief to survivors of the cyclone. A severe shortage of clean water prompted us to build over 250 tube wells, reducing the incidence of diseases like cholera and dysentery.

Life changing support.

Communities in need

Since launch, we've empowered over 10 million people worldwide.

Over the past 17 years, we have provided urgent aid and sustainable relief to thousands of disadvantaged people across the globe, including right here in the UK. Our projects focus on emergency relief, food, water, education, orphan care and seasonal aid, such as winter emergency response and Qurbani donations. We serve some of the most vulnerable people in the world; those affected - through no fault of their own - by conflict, poverty and natural disasters.

We work deep inside communities to ensure we are serving those most in need. We work across Pakistan, Bangladesh, Tanzania, Gaza, Yemen, Jordan, Cameroon, France and Australia, reaching remote locations, disaster-struck areas and parts of the world facing unimaginable poverty. With the support of our donors and partners, we are dedicated to serving some of the world’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged people; those affected by conflict, poverty and natural disasters. Innovation, education and information empower our beneficiaries, donors and stakeholders so they are part of our humanitarian journey. We ensure our beneficiaries are at the heart of our work and that we create positive change in their lives, while being accountable to our donors.
