Islamic Relief aims to give people a chance to stand on their own feet. We could give out food, water, shelter to people for years on end – or we could help them once, by supporting them to start their own business to provide for themselves.
From widows struggling to support their orphaned children, to families who have lost everything in floods or wars, one donation to Livelihoods Solutions could help countless people. When one person is able to earn an income, the whole family – children, spouses, grandparents – benefits. When one business start-up loan is repaid – and 98% of our interest-free loans are repaid – the money can be used to help another family, and another.
