Besides, a significant number of the people who receive our seasonal project support also benefit from our other endeavors, such as our emergency responses, livelihood support projects and orphan’s sponsorship interventions. This helps to ensure that seasonal programs compliment other Islamic Relief emergency and development efforts and contribute to the wider focus of empowering local communities.A significant number of the people who receive our seasonal project support also benefit from our other endeavors, such as our emergency responses, livelihood support projects and orphan’s sponsorship interventions.
