UMR believes the greatest asset of any community is the people who call it home. Therefore any approach we implement leverage involves our wide network of community partners that consist of community authorities who are village, tribal, and religious leaders and grassroots NGOs operational in the places we aim to serve. UMR is able to alter its model to meet the needs of diverse and variegated populations. This includes contributing gift in kind hospital equipment to under resourced medical facilities in Gaza, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, among many others. UMR is also a strong contributor to the field of public and mental health through cross sectoral programs that intersect with gender based violence prevention, emergency response, and education. We provide psycho social support to Syrian refugees to ease their integration into their host communities of Jordan and cataract surgeries to remote communities in Kenya and Jordan.

Together for Food

1 in 9

people in the world today (815 million) are undernourished

45% of deaths

465,002Beneficiaries

UMR plans events throughout the Ramadan and Qurbani seasons in the spirit of “feeding the fasting” through iftars, food basket distributions, and quality Qurbani meat during Eid Al-Adha. UMR contracts with authorized Halal abattoirs that are certified by the Ministries of Health and Agriculture in the countries of distribution, to ensure that cultural sensitivity standards are met.

Our Qurbani and Ramadan food programs not only aim to alleviate poverty and malnourishment with access to nutritious food, but also work to overcome barriers to access which are specific to refugees, the internally displaced, and marginalized communities.

World in Crisis

20 Million

People face starvation worldwide.

1.4 million

Children could die by the end of the year.

Emergencies impact the lives of millions around the world, leaving people in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. The demand for emergency aid has escalated in recent years, and while some emergencies, such as the 2010 Haiti earthquake and hurricanes Irma, Jose and Maria in 2017, gain widespread media coverage, many low-profile cases are scarcely publicized and receive little public attention.

556,772Beneficiaries

We help survivors impacted by natural disasters and conflicts across the world and domestically by providing medications, clean water, food and shelter assistance. Because we do not know where the next emergency will be, and pray that it does not happen, but if it does happen; you can count on us to deliver hope and aid with your help.

When we look back on this critical time in our history, will we be able to say we did all we could to help? Although UMR is working continuously through our partners on the ground in countries most impacted, we cannot do anything without your support. The world is in crisis and it’s up to each and every one of us to help ease the suffering.

Universal and sustainable access to water and sanitation is a key public health issue in the developing world. A lack of sanitation contributes to preventable diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, and moreover, have negative long term effects on a child’s development. A lack of WASH facilities can prevent girls from attending school due to an added burden of household chores. Started in 2015, UMR’s well dig project has led to the construction of 225 hand pumps, water wells, and deep wells in Cambodia, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Current countries for well dig projects are Kenya, Somalia, and Pakistan.

Thousands of Families are waiting for your donation

UMR is committed to supporting the whole child and the whole family. We provide regular food distributions to families throughout the year, with a focus on ‘feeding the fasting’ during Ramadan and Qurbani feasts to vulnerable people in Jordan, Syria, Yemen, Kenya, Somalia, and Gaza. We also distribute blankets, heaters, and jackets to thousands of vulnerable families during our annual winter campaign.

Education is a vital human right with the power to advance social and economic development. It’s a powerful instrument in which an individual who bears the hardships of a war-torn region or growing up in the lowest socio-economic status; can build a prosperous future.

268,055Beneficiaries

19,650Backpacks Distributed

Through donor-driven capacity development, UMR strives to recognize and fulfill considerable gaps in education aid. We aim to work alongside families to find suitable economic solutions and enhance the technical skills and expertise of our principal beneficiaries. We achieve this by implementing a more systemic approach to improving education by providing and administering tutoring both in the classroom and in the education ministry.

In partnership with Center on America Muslim Philanthropy, UMR carried out a domestic project titled, “Building Capacity of Muslim Non-Profit Organizations” in Indianapolis-Indiana.
