What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The increased number of refugee around the world put a strained on our resources to address the needs for refugees and displaced families. Rahma Worldwide do Not have enough funding support to achieve our mission and help more families who do not have access to clean water, food and medicine and shelter. The world is hit by the worst humanitarian crisis and ongoing conflicts and wars in many countries we operate in such as Yemen, Syria and other countries. Aid efforts have been focusing on emergency measures with little attention to the long-term solutions for refugees and internally displaced persons. Refugees and IDPs becoming vulnerable and poorer, thus creating a new category of poor in host countries and at home unless long-term perspectives to address sustainable development efforts.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our vision is to live in a world where every community is provided the opportunity to be more efficient, and sustainable.

We work hard to address widespread poverty and vulnerability among refugees, IDPs and vulnerable populations around the world

- Short to medium-term strategy focuses on delivering emergency and humanitarian assistance to refugees and IDPs in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Syria, Sudan Africa and Yemen.
- Long-term strategy to address sustainable development goals and the millennium development goals through support to (a) vulnerable children and youth education and training; (b) poor women and girls empowerment through skills development and social entrepreneurship; and (c) community development.

We are a decentralized organization with field offices in Yemen, Turkey, Jordan, Sudan Lebanon, Serra Leone,
and Ghana staffed with expertise including permanent staff and consultants to better respond to the
needs of our targeted populations. With its fields offices, Rahma has the institutional capacity to design
and implement relief and development projects at the grassroots level.

We have been working since 2014 and have provided humanitarian and emergency assistance. We have touched more than 3 million people both locally and internationally in countries such as to
estimate of refugees and IDPs in Syria, Turkey, Nigeria, Serra Leone, Ghana, Yemen, Lebanon, Sudan, and
Jordan. We have distributed winter kits, drinking water, clothing, accessories, food baskets, too many refugees and IDPs in Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, and Yemen for four consecutive years. We have also been conducting health screenings through our mobile clinics, supporting children education at school classrooms. We are looking forward to doing more in sustainable development with poverty
reduction and community empowerment at the core of its priorities.
