As the sun rises each day, illuminating the world, a stark contrast persists. For nearly 10% of humanity, a pall of despair, hunger, and poverty overshadows the light of opportunity. While we bask in the light of prosperity, countless others are shrouded in the darkness of deprivation. Picture a child, dreams in their eyes, but burdened by the chains of illiteracy. Imagine a mother, her heart heavy, as she watches her family grapple with hunger. Or a community, ravaged by conflict, striving each day for a sip of clean water or a moment of safety. At Al-Qulub Trust, we strive to illuminate these shadows, fuelled by the Islamic principles of compassion and social justice. We work diligently, not just to alleviate their immediate suffering, but to kindle a beacon of enduring hope and prosperity in their lives.
