How it all started

Our story

In fact, Allah has blessed Africa with his countless graces and resources; however, the people of Africa are among the poorest in the world. This is because of poor governance, lack of opportunity and genuine support from international community to address the root causes of the problems faced in the continent.

The continent which has a population of more than 1 billion people is never out of poverty, natural and manmade disasters.  It is suffering of endless internal conflicts, political instability and border disputes created by tyrant regimes and power mongering leaders.

Systematic killing, rape, torture, butchering and even sexual abuses are the unreported daily sufferings of the people in Africa. Brutal forces and tyrant regimes treat innocent people as the enemy to eliminate by any means.

Natural disasters such floods, droughts and diseases add on the burden of the poor Africans. The pandemic of diseases and ever shortening cycle of droughts hit Africa particularly east Africa every other year claiming lives of many children, women and elderly.

This tragedy and many others I know better than any other person deprived me sleep and forced me to try to do something to help those children, mothers and many others suffering all over the world.

It was 2004 that we decided to establish a humanitarian organisation to help those subjugated in Africa and other parties in the world. So helping the needy in Africa is my concern and will remain so in the future.
