Islamic Relief is an international humanitarian aid and development agency, subscribing to Red Cross and Red Crescent Codes of Conduct, with UN consultative status and membership of the UK’s Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC). We are dedicated to the alleviation of poverty and suffering in over 30 countries, operating regardless of race, colour, political affiliation, gender or belief and without expecting anything in return. Our humanitarian and development model is globally recognised in the NGO sector – in particular our emergency response to disasters, where we take risks to save lives. We assume that our inclusion on the UAE list can only be attributable to a mistake. We do not have a presence or any programmes in the UAE. Islamic Relief Worldwide will be seeking clarification from the UAE Embassy on this matter, with a view to having this wrongful listing removed.
