Islamic Relief became the first Muslim organisation and only the tenth organisation in the world to attain the Core Humanitarian Standard certification.

This global recognition acknowledges the high quality and effectiveness of Islamic Relief’s humanitarian work around the world, as well as its accountability to the communities it serves.

Islamic Relief’s commitments to accountability and transparency, community empowerment and resilience, to research, innovation and change, staff training and development and to establishing a strong quality management system for its operations were identified as key strengths in delivering the Core Humanitarian Standard.


We were commended for our dedication to reaching the most vulnerable and marginalised, selected on the basis of need alone, regardless of their race, religion or nationality.

The certification also demonstrates our commitments to providing relevant and appropriate assistance by involving communities and local government in the development of our programmes.


We have also been recognised as member of the month for CHS and you can find more information about this on the link below:
