This Ramadan, everything you do means we can do more. You help us fulfill our mission of a more compassionate and just world where no one is left behind.
You have the power to change lives, together let’s make it a Ramadan of Relief.
With open hands and hearts we continue to sustain orphans, the widowed, refugees, disaster-struck communities and all of those who call upon us to fulfill our obligation.
Your love and continuous commitment helped us implement over 170 projects, reach more than 1 million rights-holders through sustainable development responses, and provide ongoing care to over 22,000 orphans.
Because of you, we reached over 3.2 million vulnerable people this past year!
Together, we look forward to a Ramadan with hope.
Despite the challenges presented to us time and time again, we will persevere and be the beacon of hope for all those suffering around the world.
In a world of division and isolation, we will hold our communities closer and strive to honour each other. Whether it’s here at home in Canada or around the world.
This Ramadan 2023, our obligation to those in need will not stop. We will do our utmost to continue to bring relief with integrity and dignity to those who desperately await our help.
Join our community.
With a simple gift, we invite you to give a little of your Ramadan and be the relief!

We work with the poorest of the poor and those who are most vulnerable in the face of conflict and disaster.
Our case workers, staff and volunteers in our field offices around the world are trained to do a careful needs assessment and ensure equity between our beneficiaries.
The field offices carefully put together project proposals to meet the needs of our beneficiaries, and submit them to Islamic Relief Worldwide to request funding.
Throughout the year, and especially in Ramadan, Islamic Relief Canada collects Zakat and donations to continuously fund projects that assist the poorest of the poor.
Once donations are collected, we allocate funds to those project proposals by wiring the money to Islamic Relief Worldwide to send to the field offices for immediate implementation.
Your Donation in Action
Your support reaches our beneficiaries in the form of emergency aid, medical care, school tuition, water wells, community gardens, shelter, nutrition, and so many other forms of hope.
Once our beneficiaries receive your support, our work is not over with them. We make sure they continue to receive other forms of support, until they are self-sufficient.
It costs money to deliver aid and to do it well, ensuring the people who need it most receive the best possible support and ensuring that money goes to where it is needed.
Islamic Relief ensures that it gets the best value for money to help deliver aid on the ground as well as raising more funds for the people who need it the most.
Islamic Relief believes in transparency and accountability. Information on admin costs and annual financial statements are readily available on our website. Our financial statements are independently verified and audited.
