Muslim Aid is a UK based Islamic charity NGO.It was established in 1985 in response to the 1983–85 famine in Ethiopia, by 23 organisations based in Britain. Over the past 25 years Muslim Aid has grown from a small office in London to an international UK NGO, providing relief and development programmes in over 70 countries across the globe.
Whilst continuing to carry on its commitment to emergency relief work Muslim Aid also began to implement long-term development programmes. Today, water, healthcare, shelter and construction programs.
Muslim Aid believes that in order to really help people, the causes, not just the symptoms of poverty must be addressed. By 1994 long-term development projects accounted for almost 50% of Muslim Aid’s relief activity. As well as helping people overcome crises, Muslim Aid provides skills and resources to assist people to move forward to a better life. Muslim Aid works closely with the communities to deliver its programmes and remains committed to working in collaboration with all its beneficiaries to ensure that the solutions are not imposed from the outside. All solutions are culturally sensitive, practical and owned by the beneficiaries.
Muslim Aid entered Pakistan after the devastating earthquake in 2005. It provided emergency relief and rehabilitation services to the people affected by the earthquake.
A world of peace, compassion and justice where all people achieve fulfillment.
