About Us

Crisis Aid is a registered charity in England and Wales (1157507)
Crisis Aid is a group of sincere and caring humanitarians who want to help the world’s less fortunate, whether they are victims of poverty, natural disasters, or displacement. We believe in equality and dignity for all people and will aid them regardless of their religion, gender, or race. We make every effort to conduct our work in an open and transparent manner so that our donors can see that our beneficiaries are always our top priority.

Our History

A devastating earthquake struck northern Pakistan in 2005, killing over 100,000 people and displacing millions. Pakistani authorities struggled with rescue and relief efforts and requested help from international governments and charities, prompting a group of friends from Luton, England, to form Crisis Aid, a community organisation and begin fundraising. Volunteers from Luton travelled to Northern Pakistan and Azad Kashmir in October 2005 to deliver emergency supplies to injured and displaced people.

The Crisis in Syria

From 2006 to 2013, Crisis Aid was inactive until the harrowing images of suffering and torture from Syria’s conflict began to appear on our television screens. Keep Syria Warm, a nationwide appeal for clothing and blankets, was launched by Crisis Aid. These items were transported to Syria via Turkey in shipping containers and distributed to families to help them get through the harsh winter. Crisis Aid became a registered charity in January 2014, allowing the organisation to continue delivering life-saving humanitarian aid to victims of natural and man-made disasters. Crisis Aid have continued to assist victims of the Yemeni civil war and the Myanmar genocide of Rohingya Muslims.

Our Donation Policy

Crisis Aid has four full-time employees who are in control of all revenue generation and expenditure tracking. Our offices and warehouse, which are essential to our daily operations, are also rented. Corporate donors, standing orders and gift aid income cover the charity’s operating costs, but it is insufficient. As a result, 6p of every pound donated goes to support and operating costs, while 4p goes to getting your donations to the beneficiaries. 90p of every pound donated goes to the appeals you select.

The administrative costs of the charity are covered by:

Accountability

In order to achieve our mission and vision, we believe that we must ensure that our work has the greatest impact possible. We must first and foremost be accountable to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, because He is keeping track of everything we do and will hold us accountable. In this regard, we fear Allah as much as possible and follow the teachings in the noble Qur’an and the sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH). Following that, we are accountable to the UK Charity Commission and ultimately, our donors and trustees, who are our stakeholders. We are working to increase accountability, information sharing and evaluation.
