“In an era where, all too often, Muslims are depicted in a negative light – usually due to unresolved geopolitical conflicts and extremist elements within – it is critical to have a joint forum and a common voice that safeguards and promotes Muslim benevolence. Further, in the wake of increasing natural and man-made calamities, the need arose for an intense and determined action to better address these crises through collaborations that goes beyond the lines of faith, race and geography”.

You don’t have to rely on others’ money all the time. You can do it on your own.
