“The Core Humanitarian Standard put disaster-affected communities at the heart of a response so that they can effectively become the architects of their own destiny. Islamic Relief is committed to providing high quality humanitarian assistance to communities and people affected by crises around the world and giving them control over their own destiny.
We are delighted to receive this accreditation, which adds much credibility to our programme and reputation within the sector. But we must not be complacent. We remain committed to continually learning and sharing this learning across our country programmes, all with the aim of improving our work around the world and our accountability to those we serve.”
