Working for a faith-inspired development and humanitarian agency, it’s often presumed that we only work with Muslims and for Muslims. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Since 1984, we’ve been working across the globe to support those in need. And we employ and support people of all faiths and none.
As Major Gifts Manager at Islamic Relief UK, I’m fortunate to not only meet a diverse range of the people we help but also our supporters, who also reflect this sense of diversity. I was delighted when a non-Muslim retiree recently approached me about leaving Islamic Relief a gift in her will.
After carrying out extensive research, Jillian Walker had decided she wished to make a significant donation to Islamic Relief. It was very touching to learn that Jillian had taken so much time and care to research and choose Islamic Relief.
Jillian and I recently went to Ethiopia to see the kind of work her generous donation will be supporting. Here’s her travel diary.
