Al-Imdaad Foundation

Natural & manmade disasters are on the increase, leaving in their wake large-scale destruction, death and upheaval. Millions of people have been displaced as a result of these events and are forced to become refugees within their own countries. The Al-Imdaad Foundation has professionally trained emergency relief personnel who are readily able to respond to humanitarian disasters. We have dispatched our teams to assist in crisis situations across the globe, from the tsunamii in Indonesia to the earthquake in Haiti. Our priority is to assess the disaster, co-ordinate immediate aid distribution (food, shelter, etc), and then identify ways to provide long-term and sustainable aid to the people most affected.
