Islamic relief is an NGO (Non-Government Organization) with a foundation date starting 2000 in Indonesia. As a matter of fact, the good people working together within the organization have a second location in Jakarta that opened just three years later. The purpose of this expansion is to better help those people in need once a natural disaster takes place in the local area. Over the course of a four year time span, they assist 2000 individuals in need and spend about $267,200. The professionals working in Indonesia are just one branch of the Islamic Relief USA family tree. Collectively, their mission is to provide for the basic needs of all people, without preference to gender, race or religion. Using consensus to operate, they desire to dismantle world poverty using five simple values found in the Qur’an. These values are excellence, sincerity, social justice, compassion, and custodianship.
Save the Children is another NGO equally committed to helping other people in need. However, their focus is turned more toward the children of the world. It should be noted that this organization operates in more than twenty different nation-states over four continents. Emergency response, global health, HIV / AIDS assistance, disaster response and child protection are some of the services they provide for the people they help. Some of their current campaigns include Every Last Child, Get Ready Get Safe, Syria and Refugee Children. Moreover, this organization has two petitions circulating, and they are titled Oppose the Refugee Ban and The President’s First 100 Days. Like many NGOs and NPOs (Non-Profit Organization), what they really need are child sponsors to get involved and put a little more funding into their operations.
A newer but just as passionate organization as the others mentioned is Project Hope. This NGO helps people in Africa, the Americas, China, Europe and Eurasia, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. Indonesia happens to be on the list of places they lend a helping hand. Since 2016, Project Hope is partners with AstraZeneca in the Diabetes Empowerment and Education Program (DEEP). The goal of this partnership is to improve the quality of life for individuals in the United Arab Emirates who live with diabetes. It also aims to assist those who are at risk of developing the disease.
