Geographical remit: 


Al-Khair Foundation is a UK-based international NGO providing humanitarian support, international development, emergency aid and disaster relief in some of the world’s most deprived areas.

Established in 2003 and rapidly growing into one of the leading Muslim charities in the UK, Al-Khair Foundation also looks to tackle issues prevalent in the UK as well, such as unemployment, education, women’s empowerment and domestic violence.

Al-Khair Foundation (AKF) works locally and globally to alleviate the suffering of dispossessed people. Through generous donations, we’re able to make a difference and save lives. We provide:

  • Emergency Relief - AKF is always on standby for disasters. In the event of an emergency we’re quick to dispatch our relief teams as well as partner with like-minded charities to deliver the best, most efficient results. Once on the ground, we work to deliver the essentials (clean water, food, shelter and medication) to survivors.

  • Water Aid

  • Medical Aid

  • Shelter

  • Education

  • Livelihood Support

  • Support for Vulnerable People & Communities


It’s not all about the money. Al-Khair Foundation (AKF) has got to where it is today thanks to the time, effort and skills that our volunteers have donated. If you’re looking to support a good cause in the UK Muslim charity scene, but aren’t sure where to start, get in touch with us now.

Volunteer, fundraise, or set an appeal in motion online. There are many ways you can help. Here are some of them…

Volunteer with us

At Al-Khair Foundation, we always need an extra hand around the office, especially during busy periods like Ramadan and Eid. We’ve got volunteer positions open in departments ranging from Donations to Fundraising.

Organise a Charity Event

If you’re a social butterfly and a whizz at organising events, why not do one for a good cause? It can be as simple as an office bake-sale; or as grand as a gala dinner with vintage clothing fashion show galore. Your imagination’s the limit.

Take up a Charity Challenge

If you’re the adventurous type then any excuse is a good one to trek up a mountain or run a marathon. And what better excuse than supporting poor widows in Pakistan or building a well in Kenya? The British isles boast some of the most majestic peaks to climb, and they’re as good place to start as any.

Shake Up Social Media

Are you insta-famous or huge on Facebook? Have you got a big following on Tumblr or Twitter? Use the power of social media to raise awareness of global poverty, a current disaster, or Gaza’s ongoing crisis. Write a blog, do a vlog or create a twitter trend. Get people talking about the things that matter. And don’t forget to #hashtag, @ or link us.
