The Noor Orphans Fund is the humanitarian aid sub-division of Noor Trust, a not-for-profit organisation registered in the UK.
The Noor Trust was established in 1998 and registered as a charity in 2001. It is split into three main departments: the Noor Youth, the Islamic Education Department and the Noor Orphans Fund. As well as that, the Noor trust also works closely with and supports three Saturday schools: Al-Huda, An-Noor and Noor Al-Huda. Our main ethos is to serve the community by presenting the beautiful, non-violent and non-extremist teaching of Islam and to strengthen our youth and children with these values.
The Noor Orphans Fund is based in London and is dedicated to supporting the orphans of Iraq. We are continually seeking to provide better living conditions and educational standards for the orphans and we undertake many initiatives and schemes to achieve this objective.
The Fund is currently administered by a body of trustees, and the managing committee decides upon adding new members to the committee by way of a majority vote. No trustee shall receive any wages or have any interest in the supply of work or goods at the cost of the Fund. In furtherance of the objectives of the Fund, but not otherwise, the trustees may exercise any of the following powers:
- To raise funds and to invite and receive contributions, provided that in raising funds the charity shall not undertake any substantial permanent trading activity and shall conform to any relevant statuary regulations.
- To buy, take on lease or in exchange, hire or otherwise acquire any property necessary for the achievements of the Fund’s objectives, and to maintain and equip it for use.
- Subject to any consent required by law, to sell, lease or otherwise dispose of all of any of the property comprised in the trust fund.
- Subject to any consents required by law, to borrow money and to charge the whole or any party of the trust funds with the repayment of the money so borrowed.
- To co-operate with other charities, voluntary bodies and statuary authorities in the furtherance of the objectives of similar charitable purpose and to exchange information and advice with them.
- To do all such other lawful things as are necessary for the achievement of the Fund’s objectives.
