Human Appeal was named the best performing charity in the review of the haysmacintyre /Charity Finance 250 Index. Human Appeal saw a 67 per cent increase in income to £59.9 million in the financial year ending December 31, 2017.

In a statement to The Muslim News the NGO’s acting Chief Executive, Elfatih Ibrahim said,
“I believe that few charities in the world can save lives as effectively as Human Appeal, and so institutional partners like the UN have trusted us with so much money. But so many more lives need saving in Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Gaza, Burma, Bangladesh, and elsewhere. Human Appeal will continue to grow if we are to keep on saving even more lives.”

The Civil Society UK report stated that the “increase derives from a tripling of institutional funding from £12.5 million to £37.5 million. Included in the increase is a 75 per cent uplift in funding to £17.6 million from the World Food Programme, a new £15 million contract from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and other new smaller contracts with funding bodies including United Nations UK, the World Health Organisation and the Islamic Development Bank.”

The charity’s trustees have an ambitious target for institutional funding and strategic partnerships, aiming to raise “at least £50 million in institutional contracts by 2020 to deliver more improved-quality, long-term and sustainable projects.”
