The Mainstay Foundation’s commitment to community development, has seen it deliver several grants to charity’s within Iraq, whose beneficiaries include Orphans and their carers suffering from financial difficulty, in addition to those suffering from illness or a lack of adequate healthcare. These grants in turn have provided orphans and their carers with some of the financial support required to counter the effects of poverty, that includes limited access to healthcare, hunger and more generally a lack of basic needs.
The Mainstay Foundation has provided logistical and financial support to humanitarian organisations in Africa. Such support has included financial sponsorship programmes for those living in poverty, in addition to ready access to healthcare for those who can’t afford it. These humanitarian services have had a tremendous impact on alleviating the suffering from the impoverished and destitute.
The Mainstay Foundation has recently expanded its work in the objective of community development and education to the region of India. There are a large number of individuals throughout the country living below the poverty line who do not have the means for basic subsistence. This includes food, medical aid, clothing, housing and more. Our work with our partners India aims to uplift as many people as we can from below the poverty line. The Foundation further identified a need for assistance in the region of India for individuals at the level of primary school all the way up to professional courses, to gain the qualifications and education that most are privileged to receive around the world. We continue to work with a number of partners in India to make sure we are able to provide education to as many people as possible throughout the country.
Our North American and European Muslim communities need programmes and projects which help strengthen their identity in faith in a meaningful way. The Foundation has concentrated on pinpointing strategic partners and organisations that can host creative programmes that engage our communities in the present while connecting them to their heritage, history, and tradition.
