Empowering you to empower children, women and families.
The suffering of children is one of the hardest things to witness, especially because they are the most vulnerable to the effects of poverty and conflict. Trapped in broken economies, children are forced into impossible situations, to beg, to work, risking their lives, even to sell themselves.
Islamic Relief is supporting disabled children in Lebanon, and Haneen now wears special medical boots and has regular physiotherapy to help her body mend, but she is most concerned about getting a good education.
Islamic Relief has been delivering a range of life-changing projects designed to boost incomes and enhance services for women in rural villages.
So far, we have constructed and equipped maternity facilities and provided 20 motorcycle ambulances to serve communities. Local people have been empowered to oversee the services through health centre management committees. We trained health workers to spot and treated malnutrition, and midwives to prevent the transmission of diseases and improve birth plans and care for newborns.
When parents live in poverty, their children are equally affected, At Islamic Relief, we believe empowering families will benefit the wider community and will ensure children have a healthy environment to grow and make a difference.
Empowering parents will ensure a bright future for generations to come.
