Noor Orphans Fund is the humanitarian-aid division of Noor Trust, a non-profit organisation registered in the UK.
Noor Trust was established in 1998, and officially registered as a charity in 2001. It is split into three main departments: Noor Youth, Noor Islamic Education, and Noor Orphans Fund.
In addition, 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 benevolent, non-violent and non-extremist teaching of Islam, as well as to invigorate our youth and children with these values.
Noor Orphans Fund (NOF) is based in London, and is dedicated to supporting the orphans of Iraq. We are continually seeking to provide better living conditions and appropriate educations standards for orphans, and we have undertaken initiatives and implemented projects to attain this objective, while additional schemes and projects are currently in the pipeline.
At present, the Fund is administered by a body of trustees, and the management committee decides upon adding new members to the committee by way of majority voting. No trustee receives any payment or has any financial interest in the supply of work or goods at the expense of the Fund. In furtherance of the objectives of the Fund, the trustees may exercise any of the following functions:
- To raise funds, and to invite and receive contributions, provided that in raising funds the charity shall not undertake any substantial and/or permanent trading activity and shall conform to all relevant statuary and regulatory provisions.
- To buy, take on, lease, hire or otherwise acquire any property necessary for the fulfilment of the Fund’s objectives, and to maintain and equip it for practical sue.
- Subject to any consent required by law, to sell, lease or otherwise dispose of any of the assets comprised in the Trust’s fund.
- Subject to any consents required by law, to borrow money, and to charge the whole or any part of the Trust’s assets 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 purposes, and to exchange information and advice with them.
- To do all other lawful things as are necessary for the achievement of the Fund’s objectives.
All in all, therefore, both NOF and Noor Trust strive to serve the local community in the UK, with a focus on the young, as well as giving a special attention to Iraqi orphans, so as to cater for their needs.
