In 1993, a community in Nottingham, moved by the devastation of the Bosnian war, sprang into action. A small group of volunteers began collecting money, clothes and medicine for the people of Bosnia. Muslim Hands, an international aid agency and NGO, grew from this grass roots movement and since these first efforts, they have responded to countless more emergencies, as well as establishing long term projects such as schools, healthcare clinics and livelihood programmes worldwide.
They are working in over 50 countries and have field offices in over 30 of these. By working closely with their partners and offices on the ground, they are able to distribute aid in an effective, efficient, transparent and wholly accountable manner and to make a lasting difference to the communities they work with and can accept “sadaqah” and “zakah” online. Dedicated to tackling the root causes of poverty around the world, Muslim Hands is passionate about working beyond the provision of immediate relief, towards supporting communities over the long-term.
