Exactly thirty years ago, back in 1992’s spring, Islamic Relief Pakistan started its journey with a sole mission of transforming lives besides bringing a speck of gold, hope and opportunities to millions of people across the country.

Our enshrined values of compassion, custodianship, sincerity, social justice and excellence guide us to serve humanity in the finest way possible.

During the last three decades, we have been delivering on our promises to bring a lasting change in Pakistan. With ‘Reaching the most in Need’ and ‘First on Ground’ as our hallmarks, Islamic Relief Pakistan has been addressing the deep-rooted issues faced by the country like poverty, water, sanitation and hygiene, food security and livelihoods, climate change, health, orphans and women empowerment including emergency responses and disaster risk reduction.

As we work to come up with solutions for the most pressing issues of our times, Islamic Relief Pakistan will always stay indebted to the resilient people of Pakistan who helped us to grow and serve.

Our Mission

Together we will inspire and enable people to respond rapidly to disasters and fight poverty through our Islamic values, expertise and global reach.
