Our Work

Helping to build a better future

We're dedicated to serving the most vulnerable people across the world by addressing the root causes of poverty and empowering communities. From addressing short-term needs to tackling long term issues, Muslim Hands works to alleviate poverty through a range of varied and important areas.

  • Education
  • Education is a doorway out of poverty. We believe the only way to break the cycle of poverty is to give people the opportunity to educate themselves and work their own way to independence and success.

  • Emergencies
  • Emergencies can strike at any time. We believe they are a time for immediate action, but they are also a time to act wisely for the future. Our operations involve immediate relief, early recovery and long term rehabilitation work.

  • Environment
  • At Muslim Hands we try to prioritise environmental sustainability in all our projects. We believe poverty alleviation is not effective if it exploits the long term health of the ecology and humanitarian projects at best remain temporary.

  • Health
  • It is much too easy to forget how vital good health is for communities to be able to prosper. Muslim Hands runs projects to address the most prevalent and widespread diseases.

  • Hunger
  • Hunger is the most severe form of poverty and can cripple entire communities. At Muslim Hands our core work focuses on providing nutritional aid to families and communities around the world.

  • Livelihoods
  • Muslim Hands livelihoods projects are diverse and designed to allow individuals to translate their skills and hard work into the opportunity to support their families with dignity.

  • Orphans
  • Orphan care is at the heart of the work Muslim Hands carries out. We believe providing children with security and a high standard of education will help tackle the root causes of poverty and empower generations to come.

  • Water
  • No intervention has greater overall impact upon national development and public health than the provision of safe drinking water and proper sanitation. That is why at Muslim Hands we take a comprehensive approach to safe water projects.
