Our work in Afghanistan to support orphaned children in need started late 2009, through a partnership with Omeid International. The children have since grown into young men and are now ready to move on.
Somalia is one of the poorest countries in the world with no official government for years. GiveLight has a long term vision to reach out to orphans globally and Africa is a priority.
After the earthquake in Haiti, GiveLight activated its 100% volunteer base to mobilize the Bay Area Muslim community to join in the immediate relief effort. We collected over $10,000, which provided help to the children of Haiti via partnership with UNICEF and Zakat Foundation.
