As the world focuses on preventing the spread of COVID-19, Islamic Relief is providing health and hygiene support to vulnerable people around the world – and appealing to donors to assist this vital work.
According to the latest figures, over 530,000 people have tested positive for the disease in 155 countries. This number is likely to increase over the coming weeks and months as the global pandemic reaches people in every part of the world.
Islamic Relief works in 35 countries. Our staff on the ground in many of these countries are gearing up to provide lifesaving medical care and boost preventative action to minimise the risk of disease. As COVID-19 impacts more communities around the world, our teams will be running health clinics, providing hygiene kits and access to sanitation.
And whoever saves one life it would be as if he saved all of mankind (Qur’an 5:32).
There are millions of vulnerable people around the world who have inadequate access to healthcare. The risk of serious illness or death from disease is even higher for them.
Islamic Relief is continuing to provide support to vulnerable people all over the world and in the coming days, weeks and months will be doing all we can to limit the impact of coronavirus through our health and hygiene programmes.
