Human Aid & Advocacy is committed to remaining independent from the external agendas of funding agencies. This is why our funds only come from individual donors and the donations of other charities to the projects we implement. We do not take institutional funding, to best ensure that our vision and mission can truly be brought to life.
For every £1 you donate, 87.5p is spent on supporting our survivors via our aid programmes. The remaining 12.5p goes towards our admin costs, as well as funding our advocacy work, which focuses on drawing public attention to the real causes of war and persecution of Muslims and providing a voice to Survivors, advocating justice for them. All of your donations go towards supporting our Survivors via aid and advocacy, either directly or indirectly.
Admin costs are vital for us to operate and deliver all projects and programmes to our Survivors. Admin costs typically cover expenses, such as rent for offices, equipment, such as computers and software, auditing accounts, training to ensure your amanah is delivered to a high and efficient standard, and admin staff salaries and volunteer expenses.
Human Aid & Advocacy would not be able to deliver all our life changing programmes without expending on admin. 100% donation guarantees suggest to donors that 100% of donations go exclusively and directly to the people in need, however, the general awareness of this application in practice is not always established. Therefore, we find there are gaps in understanding the true meaning of a 100% donation policy, largely due to the absence of a codified or unified description.
Human Aid & Advocacy believe in transparency; therefore it is vital to make our donors aware of how donations are spent and how we implement our projects and programmes. This in turn promotes accountability and builds trust in our work and efforts.
Human Aid & Advocacy have adopted the model Zakah policy from the Islamic Council of Europe. Our Shariah advisors are Shaykh Suliman Ghani and Shaykh Abdul Qayum.
