Islamic Relief was founded in 1984 to fight the ongoing poverty in Africa, by the students at University of Birmingham under the leadership of Dr. Hany el Banna. In 1985, its youth actively go from door to door and from masjid to masjid, to collect aid and sponsors for their first project, a chicken farm in Sudan.
In the next five years, Islamic Relief began its work in Mozambique, Iran, Pakistan, Malawi, Iraq and Afghanistan. Many important activities such as providing emergency aid, clothes and food distribution, healthcare and orphan assistance projects were carried out.
Islamic Relief is an important international organization that provides immediate assistance and conducts long-term projects in more than 40 countries.
