BELIEFS AND VALUES
Dedicated to tackling the root causes of poverty around the world, Global Ehsan Relief is passionate about eradicating the many inequalities around us and committed to the long term development of building a fairer, safer world. GER aims to provide an ethical service for the collection and distribution of funds in an effective, efficient, transparent and wholly accountable manner.
We are guided by the timeless values and teachings of the Qur’an and Prophetic example (Sunnah), which recognise that people with wealth have a duty to those who are less fortunate. We help poor people to access basic services, including education, water and sanitation, as well as healthcare. We provide lasting routes out of poverty through our sustainable livelihoods schemes.
Global Ehsan Relief's Board of Trustees comprises of members of the Muslim community, ensuring that our work is effective, the best possible standard, fully accountable and true to the humanitarian spirit and teachings of Islam. In order to evaluate GER's projects, our Trustees make personal visits to field offices and partner organisations, from time to time.
Global Ehsan Relief works under the guidance of scholars who ensure that the organisation's role as a trustee is always fulfilled. Knowing that we are all ultimately accountable to the Almighty, the organisation strives to maintain transparency and accountability.
All donated funds are monitored and reviewed by scholars who ensure Zakah, Sadaqah and Lillah funds are spent correctly.
The organisation also has a full and transparent audit trail from the donor to the beneficiary.
Note: Global Ehsan Relief does not carry out door-to-door collections. The organisation advises anyone who receives collectors at their door, claiming to represent this organisation, not to give anything and to inform Global Ehsan Relief immediately.
