Islamic Relief Annual Report 2000
All praise to Allah, the Lord of the universe
Compassion fatigue appears never to have encountered our donors. Although our public support is based amongst some of the poorest communities in Europe and America, their generosity towards those who need help is proportionally far greater than higher income groups.
Upon reflection, though, perhaps the charity of the poor should come as no surprise. Many of our donors from Muslim and other communities spread across the West have very vivid memories of themselves of recently poverty and hardship, which gives them a unique ability to empathise and respond to others in distress.
