Inspired by our Islamic faith and guided by our values, we envisage a world where communities are empowered, social obligations are fulfilled and people respond as one to the suffering of others. We believe that those in need have rights over people with wealth and power – regardless of race, political affiliation, gender or belief.

Our Values


Who We Are


Islamic Relief Australia (IRAUS) is a team of Australian volunteers, supporters and staff who together seek to address injustice and empower communities, as inspired by Islamic values.

IRAUS is a member of the global Islamic Relief family; a leading international charity, whose members are joined together through a spirit of collaboration and through sharing a common vision, mission and identity.

We reflect our Australian context through our focus on local and regional issues in the aid and development space, while drawing upon the wealth of expertise and support of the global Islamic Relief family in the work we do.

Islamic Relief works with communities to strengthen their resilience to calamities, and we provide vital emergency aid when disasters occur.

We tackle the root causes of poverty and make sure that the world’s most vulnerable people have real influence in both our programs and advocacy.

We are proud of Islamic Relief Australia achievement’s in serving the less fortunate in the past 7 years and we look forward to continue progressing towards fulfilling our mission and delivering on our vision for the future.
