About Us

ABOUT ONE UMMAH

One Ummah Charity is an award-winning, humanitarian and disaster relief aid organisation based in the UK. We currently provide and facilitate aid across more than 15 calamity-stricken countries worldwide including Syria, Palestine, Yemen and Afghanistan.

We aim to alleviate suffering, and ultimately, save the lives of our brothers and sisters across the world. Not only do we aim to provide immediate relief to those in need; we also focus on empowerment projects that give beneficiaries the opportunity to transform theirs and their families lives for the better.

With our assistance, beneficiaries are given the skills and tools to craft a better life, away from the misery of poverty. After eight years of life-saving work, we have expanded greatly, with the recruitment of volunteers, employment of staff, and establishing offices across the UK and abroad. 

Without the mercy of Allah first and foremost, and then the generosity of our amazing donors, we would not be in a position where we are able to benefit millions around the world every year.

May Allah reward and accept the deeds of every single person who was a part of our journey and continues to support our work.

OUR MISSION

To put the true light of Islam in practise by tackling poverty, changing lives and answering the calls of those in need. To bring joy, dignity and honour back to our brothers and sisters in Humanity around the world. We aim to:

  • Respond to emergency disasters anywhere in the world and provide relief.
  • Develop innovative and sustainable solutions for individuals and communities living in poverty.
  • Tackle the root causes of poverty in any region and make positive changes.
  • To bring the light of Islam to individuals and communities around the world.

100% DONATION POLICY

We take the trusts of people very seriously and guarantee that every last penny we receive from you is spent supporting the cause/project you have donated towards. Meaning, if you donated for a water well, your money will only be spent on the delivery, construction, labour, contractors and materials required in building that well. Not a single penny will go towards administration, marketing or generating further funds, Alhamdulillah.

OUR VISION

A world that is free from poverty, starvation and water shortages, A world filled with justice, love, care and tarbiyyah. A world that enables and empowers each and every individual from anywhere in the world to reach their true potential, without being held back by the difficulties of poverty.
