Islamic Relief Sverige

Aim of the organisation

Islamic Relief Sweden is an independent humanitarian and development organisation. We work together with marginalised, vulnerable and poverty-affected people and communities to prevent and alleviate human suffering and to save and transform lives, in over 40 crisis-affected countries around the world. Islamic Relief Sweden was founded in 1992 and is part of the Islamic Relief family.

As a faith-inspired organisation, Islamic Relief Sweden’s work is guided by the teaching and values of the Qur’an and the Sunnah and our organisational values: compassion, custodianship, social justice, sincerity and excellence. It is also guided by the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality and independence, as well as the global commitment that no-one should be left behind.

Organisation activities

We will mobilise resources, build partnerships and develop local capacity as we work to:

- Respond to humanitarian emergencies and protracted crises, in
partnership with local and national actors.
- Strengthen emergency preparedness among local communities, local and
national authorities, and enable communities to mitigate the effect of
disasters.
- Promote integrated humanitarian, development, environmental and
peacebuilding programming, in order to strengthen sustainable
livelihoods, gender justice, climate adaptation and social justice.
- Support marginalised and vulnerable people and communities to voice
their needs and call for inclusive and transparent decision-making and
access to financing, in order to address the root causes of poverty,
inequality and conflict, as well as the effects of the climate crisis.
