Out of control wildfires force thousands of people out of their homes

Residents of neighbourhoods in Fort McMurray, Alberta, were forced to evacuate their homes on May 14th as an out-of-control wildfire crept closer to the city. Residents were asked to evacuate abruptly, leaving all their belongings behind and no guarantee of when they could return. 

Islamic Relief is on the ground in Alberta, responding to the emergency and working to provide urgent food, clothes and hygiene products to evacuees.

How your donations can help Fort McMurray evacuees

Fire danger continues to be extreme, with unfavourable wind conditions pushing the fire towards the city. You can help ease the burden of this wildfire for the Fort McMurray evacuees by donating towards our life-saving work.

Please support the people of Fort McMurray today.

We firmly believe that charity starts at home. This is how real change takes root in the most impactful way.

Our efforts in Canada are focused on youth development, women empowerment, violence survivors, Indigenous communities, newcomer/refugee support, poverty reduction, healthcare and emergency humanitarian response.

Your support today means we can reduce poverty and support the most vulnerable here in Canada .

From coast to coast, let us join hands and meet the needs of our neighbourhoods.

Emergency Response

We are always ready to answer the call. We have supported 29,722 people through emergency response interventions during the Alberta and British Columbia Wildfires, Quebec floods, assisting the families of the Quebec Mosque shooting and St James Fire.

In 2019, we partnered with Canadian Red Cross to support the training of our dedicated volunteers and respond with CRC when a natural disaster happens.

Youth Development

IR Canada has assisted over 22,000 youth (aged 16-24) by working to improve the welfare of marginalized and economically disadvantaged youth through the promotion of education and mentorship, mental health and well-being, and protection services for at risk youth.

We believe that by empowering our youth through skills development and education we are preparing them for a brighter future.

Women Empowerment

Our projects have supported over 14,480 vulnerable women and victims of violence by improving access to safe and inclusive drop-in centers, transitional homes and also, raising awareness through a culturally sensitive approach to prevent domestic and gender-based violence.
