MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE

From natural disasters to conflict, from sudden calamities to crises that emerge over a period of years, Islamic Relief has been responding to humanitarian emergencies for decades. It was not until 2020, however, that we faced our first pandemic.

As severe restrictions on movement were introduced in many places to reduce the spread of coronavirus, we strained every sinew to step up our programmes. We were determined to remain by the side of vulnerable people as the Covid-19 crisis pushed so many of them further into poverty and suffering.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR OF TRUSTEES

We look back on 2020 as an extraordinary year for us all. It was a year in which
the Covid-19 pandemic killed hundreds of thousands of people and wreaked economic havoc, decimating livelihoods and stopping normal life in its tracks.

As this Annual Report and Financial Statements record, 2020 was also an extraordinary year for Islamic Relief – a year of huge challenges and yet also one of significant achievements in the face of adversity.
