Bangladesh (2019): Empowering flooded communities
Following devastating floods, Islamic Relief provided cash grants to affected families in Char Am Khawa and Dangdhara (Dewangonj) in Jamalpur district. Each family received BDT 4500 (approximately £41.50) to go towards repairing their homes, re-establishing their livelihoods, getting an education, providing transport, meeting health and hygiene needs and purchasing food and other non-food items.
Mali (2019): Bringing critical aid after flooding
After flooding in Bamako turned local communities upside down, we stepped in immediately to support those affected. We were able to access affected communities and provide essential food and non-food aid to families on the ground. After meeting their immediate needs, we then supported the same families in a follow-up project, funded by the START Fund and implemented in collaboration with Save the Children, to enable us to provide even more care.
At Islamic Relief, we’ve been responding to some of the world’s largest disasters for over 30 years.
Our teams on the ground and network of local partnerships mean that we can respond quickly to communities in crisis, reaching areas where many other organisations cannot. We’re on stand-by to save and transform the lives of men, women and children hit by natural disasters, war and conflict.
It’s thanks to your generous donations that we’re ready to respond when crisis hits. If you’d therefore like to support our rapid response work, please donate towards our Global Emergencies Fund. Save a life now.
