Since 2014, Al-Wahab Foundation (AWF) has delivered emergency and developmental aid to combat and eradicate poverty, growing to reach thousands of people each year. Our aim is to see a world where people are empowered to be able to step up out of deprivation and build their future with independence and dignity. With your support, our aid solutions serve people in remote and rural areas, providing food, clean water, healthcare, education and innovative livelihood support programmes.
AWF (previously known as Ummah Charity International) has been creating networks of care and relief since 2014. Our chairperson, Mufti Abdul Wahab, has seen first-hand the devastation caused by natural disaster in underdeveloped countries where the most vulnerable suffer the most. From these experiences, AWF was founded and has grown today to help thousands of people suffering extreme poverty and living in desperate conditions.
AWF Vision & Mission
At Al-Wahab Foundation our vision is to address the root causes of poverty by ensuring that every individual in our society can earn a stable livelihood to support their needs and that of their family. With your donations, we provide aid solutions that meet basic and immediate needs such as food, clean water and healthcare, supporting people in crisis. Due to your generosity and compassion, our developmental programmes help people by providing business support, finance, training, tools and resources so they can learn, achieve and earn.
Our mission, inspired by our founder Mufti Abdul Wahab, is to provide sustainable solutions to people in poverty, empowering them to earn a stable living without the need for humanitarian support. Our programmes focus on providing access to economic stability that combats and eradicates poverty in all its forms.
Our Journey So Far...
Our healthcare programmes began with the donation of a wheelchair. The same year, we installed our nine hand-pumps and one water well, benefiting 1225 people in Pakistan as part of our Water Project.
As crisis hit, AWF helped hundreds of urban flood victims in Pakistan by providing food, water & medical aid. Through our Earthquake relief project in North Pakistan, we provided food, water & shelter to over 720 displaced individuals and medical care to over 50 victims who were wounded or injured. Our Rozgar project began, helping two individuals start their small businesses in Karachi.
Our first Masjid was built in Pakistan, allowing 200 people to perform daily prayers. Due to the unfolding crisis in Rohingya, AWF sent humanitarian aid to 2100 beneficiaries to meet their emergency needs.
Your support is vital to helping us achieve this and we couldn’t do it without our dedicated volunteers.
