Islamic Relief also abides by the international humanitarian principles of:
- Humanity: Every individual’s right to live with dignity. Also the duty of others to try to save lives and alleviate suffering.
- Impartiality: To act when there is need, without discrimination.
- Neutrality: To act without preference for one group or another in conflict.
- Independence: To ensure that humanitarian work is autonomous, separate from any other political, economic or military interests.
