International Humanitarian Relief
International Humanitarian Relief (IHR) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political organization established and registered in June 2011, in Vienna, Austria.
We are committed in providing emergency aid to the most deprived communities through substantial long-term solutions.
Our Values

We are dedicated not only to the alleviation of human suffering but also to a broader movement that advocates for equal rights and opportunities for all.

What We Do
We work to improve the situation of both, the refugees and host communities through the following areas of focus and projects
Housing & Sheltering

We are focused on address the housing needs of individuals and families who lack stable and adequate shelter. We aim to provide safe and secure housing options for those experiencing homelessness, displacement, or precarious living conditions. Access to safe and suitable housing can have a transformative impact on individuals and families, enabling them to thrive, rebuild their lives, and participate fully in their communities.

Water Sanitation & Hygiene

The lack of planning and the absence of sewage treatment networks inside the slums that resulted from wars and disasters lead to more chaos and polluted environment. We work on finding proper solutions by digging wells and establishing healthcare supply chain networks that provide water and sewage treatment especially at displacement camps and besieged areas.

Orphan Sponsorship

In areas of disaster, children are among the most vulnerable groups affected. In response, we have opened orphanages and provided financial assistance in form of monthly monetary, medical and educational sponsorship.

Health & Nutrition

Due to overpopulation from war or disasters, plagues and contagious diseases become very common. In response, we have established clinics in besieged areas and residential communities to provide health care services including doctor appointments, free medication and vaccination.

Islamic Givings

Islamic giving in Eid and Ramad, including Sadaqa, Zakat and Qurban, we aim to play a vital role in alleviating poverty, supporting humanitarian causes, and strengthening social cohesion. We work to contribute to the betterment of society, demonstrating the values of empathy, solidarity, and compassion.


Education is one of our main priorities. We believe education is a tool for change, therefore we have established many schools to ensure that education is provided to every child. In addition, these schools were a space for other members of the community to work.

Winter Response

During the cold months of the year, we work to provide essential support and assistance to those affected by extreme weather conditions, by providing shelter, warm clothing, and heating assistance. We work to prevent suffering, protect lives, and promote dignity for all.
