It has never been more important to us to make the most of your mercy as people around the world contend with a slowing global economy and a growing cost of living crisis. We are committed to ensuring your charity is delivered effectively.
We’ve spent the last 30 years doing just that. To every initiative, we bring our operational expertise, our efficient and transparent stewardship, and a deep understanding of and connection with the issues affecting vulnerable people all over the world. This is what our donors trust and rely on year after year: knowing exactly, what, where, when, for whom, and how their mercy is being delivered.
We make the most of your mercy so that we can:
Safeguard bright futures for more than 22,000 vulnerable orphans in 9 countries. Our one-to-one sponsorship programme has a built-in school attendance requirement while covering the cost of food, housing, medical care, and learning materials.

Protecting an entire community from being washed away, the embankment has held back the floods each year, including Pakistan’s worst flooding in a decade during its last monsoon season.

Quench the thirst for the 2 million residents of the Gaza Strip by working with UNOCHA to purify Gaza’s water network. And now, our newest project involves building a large-scale desalination plant to provide daily access to clean water for 60,000 people across Gaza.
Recover lost livelihoods for vulnerable farmers in Gaza by planting 80,000 olive trees since 1991. The farming project provides each farmer with 30-40 prime olive trees so they can establish a vibrant, sustainable crop that yields not just food but income for generations.
Restore safe and secure residential spaces in Syria, like the construction of a new town with 1,000 newly constructed homes in Al Zahoor.
Such life-changing relief projects require investment, expertise, and logistical know-how to achieve their full potential. Our staff on the ground are delivering your mercy every day all around the world.
Our governance with your mercy are a powerful combination that transforms the lives of the vulnerable in our global Ummah.
Our admin fee enables us to make the most of your mercy
We are a high-performing international relief organisation operating in some of the most dangerous, volatile, and remote place on earth. To get your mercy delivered to those most in need, we allocate a small portion of each donation towards the custodianship of your merciful donations. We are fully transparent about our admin fee of 9 pence for every £1 donated. We further invest 13p in the £1 to continue raising funds for the charity. Between 2019 and 2022, we grew our income by a huge 222% by raising funds through that small 13 pence. Finally, a full 78p goes straight to our projects in 20 countries, transforming and empowering the most vulnerable communities. A maximum of 12.5% of your Zakat goes to support our admin costs, which covers our monitoring of projects, protection of those we work with, and raising of more funds, helping to keep our projects safe, sustainable, and of the greatest impact. Efficiency and transparency are important hallmarks of how we manage to deliver your mercy, and make the most of it. That’s why we are diligent in being fully transparent and accountable for every penny we receive from generous donors like you.
Charity is a gift, offering endless mercy to those who give, as well as mercy to the vulnerable people who receive it. Our admin fee helps us to get your donation to where you intended it. That’s why we like to think of it as the stamp on the envelope of your mercy.
