Islamic Relief Worldwide has today published its annual report for 2014, which gives details of income and expenditure – and the positive impact achieved for millions of vulnerable people.
In 2014, our total global income reached £182 million – a growth of £62 million since 2012 – and voluntary income rose to a record high of 79 per cent of our total income. This year saw even more spending carried out directly through our field offices worldwide.
Islamic Relief has sent 30,000 pounds worth of vital medical aid to the besieged city of Misrata in Libya. The medical supplies were dispatched from the Tunisian port of Sousse.
Misrata is currently under rebel control with all roads into the city cut off by forces loyal to Colonel Gadaffi. This makes delivering humanitarian aid very difficult.
Islamic Relief has been liaising with the Misrata medical committee to find out exactly what is required. We have already been helping refugees leaving Libya and managing the camps on the Tunisia-Libya border on behalf of UNHCR.
We were the first NGO's to arrive in Bengazi and we are coordinating with the Libyan Red Crescent.

(Washington, D.C., 3/1/11) - In response to the increasingly acute humanitarian situation at Libya's borders, Islamic Relief USA is launching an emergency appeal to assist Libyan refugees and migrant workers at both of Libya's borders.
More than 1,000 civilians have died and over 100,000 refugees have fled to neighboring countries as a direct result of the violence, according the United Nations.
To date, Islamic Relief has provided emergency shelter and food to refugees fleeing the country on the eastern border with Egypt.
People are being urged to back Islamic Relief in its efforts to get humanitarian assistance to vulnerable people suffering as the situation in Libya escalates.
The humanitarian crisis on the western side of Libya and is rapidly increasing. Around 14,000 refugees crossed the border in to Tunisia yesterday alone, and Islamic Relief is working hard to meet the needs of those fleeing the country.
