Muslim Hands was established in the UK in 1993. A separate and independent entity was incorporated in Canada in October 2015 and there is a pending application for registration with the Canada Revenue Agency. Muslim Hands is an international aid agency and NGO working in over 50 countries worldwide to help those affected by natural disasters, conflict and poverty.
When, in 1993, the Bosnian War brought devastation to eastern Europe, a community in Nottingham, England, was moved to take action. This small team of volunteers started by collecting money, clothes and medicine for the struggling people of Bosnia.
From this grassroots movement, Muslim Hands has grown into an international aid agency and NGO. Since then we have responded to numerous emergencies worldwide, and established myriad long-term projects like schools, health clinics and livelihood programmes.
