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.

Since then, Muslim Hands has grown into an international aid agency and NGO. We have responded to numerous emergencies worldwide and established myriad long-term projects like schools, health clinics, and livelihood programs. 

Muslim Hands Canada is a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency (Charity Registration No. 81126 4985 RR0001). Delivery of projects outside of Canada is through an affiliated Muslim Hands organization.

Muslim Hands is determined not just to provide immediate relief but to battle the root causes of poverty worldwide. We work beyond the immediate needs of communities, ensuring they have sufficient support for the long term.
