Hunger has been dubbed “The World’s Greatest Solvable Problem”, for it requires no research or scientific breakthroughs. Although we live in a world of plenty, too many men and women around the world struggle to put food on the table every day for their children. One in nine people still go to bed on an empty stomach every night and even more - one in three - suffer from some form of malnutrition.
Universal, affordable and sustainable access to WASH is a key public health issue as well as a human right. Water has also been mentioned 63 times in the Quran, indicating that a supply of clean water is one of the greatest charities in Islam.
Studies have shown that water scarcity, poor water quality and inadequate sanitation negatively impact food security, livelihood choices and educational opportunities for poor families all around the world. Nevertheless, in 2017 the World Health Organization estimated that 2.3 billion people continue to live without sanitation facilities and 844 million without access to safe and clean drinking water.
Safe and decent housing is a fundamental right recognised in a number of international human rights instruments, and is often a precondition for the enjoyment of several other human rights. To name a few, it protects individuals from adverse weather, thereby ensuring good health and wellbeing, facilitates the possibility of earning a living, and promotes private and family life.
It has now been a year since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has claimed millions of lives and affected global economies like never before.
Last year Al-Khair Foundation launched an international £1M appeal, to offer a lifeline to people in need by the impact of the Coronavirus around the globe.
Your response was amazing and we were able to help hundreds of thousands of people at home and abroad.
The Foundation will be purchased and delivered medical and hygiene kits for the most vulnerable suffering from the pandemic.
The initiative was initially rolled out in Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Kenya, Turkey and the Middle East, but the reach of the campaign increased as need increased.
As a humanitarian agency we are providing medical relief and food aid. Many people have lost family members and others have lost their jobs due to the fallout from the pandemic. Millions have been left with long term health conditions and can no longer work.
