Focus on Chechnya
A history of war and continuous conflict has led to high unemployment and extreme poverty across Chechnya. With little effort towards reconstruction, the country is severely underdeveloped. Nearly 80% of the population is unemployed and they lack access to basic needs such as food, water, healthcare, and proper housing. On top of that, winters make the situation worse.
Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Chechnya
Islamic Relief was one of the first humanitarian organizations to respond to the needs on the ground during the conflicts in Chechnya. Since then, our focus has been on long-term development assistance to help vulnerable communities across the country.
A few of our interventions include:
- Sustainable livelihood support including vocational education for youth and business development for vulnerable families
- Orphan family support including financial assistance and the construction of a children’s center
- Winter aid
