About Muslim Hands

'Indeed, the men who practice charity and the women who practice charity ... it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward.'

(Qur'an 57:18)


When, in 1993, the Bosnian War brought devastation to eastern Europe, a community in Nottingham, England, was moved to take action. This small team of volunteers started by collecting money, clothes and medicine for the struggling people of Bosnia.

From this grassroots movement, Muslim Hands has grown into an international aid agency and NGO. Since then we have responded to numerous emergencies worldwide, and established myriad long-term projects like schools, health clinics and livelihood programmes.

Muslim Hands USA is a registered charity (Charity Registration Number: 27-4155655) with the Internal Revenue Service. Delivery of projects outside of USA is through an affiliated Muslim Hands organization.

Muslim Hands is determined not just to provide immediate relief but to battle the root causes of poverty worldwide. We work beyond the immediate needs of communities, ensuring they have sufficient support for the long-term.

Since 1993 Muslim Hands Worldwide has:

Raised over $245 million

Sponsored over 50,000 orphans

Provided over 2.5 million people with clean water
