Established in 2006, Teebah Foundation is one of UK’s registered charities; providing long-term solutions to combat poverty around the world. We believe that every human being has the right to live.

“Teebah Foundation” was named after the holy city of Madinah where the prophet (PBUH) and his companions sought refuge and shelter. Hence, we thought that the name fits in perfectly with our theme of universal refuge and sanctity. The word “Teebah” itself is an Arabic noun (sometimes can be an adjective) which means pure and good.

Our mission

“Allah is helping the servant as long as the servant is helping his brother.” [Muslim]
Our mission is to improve the quality of people’s lives by identifying areas of poor healthcare and inadequate educational facilities in impoverished communities. We reach out to those suffering, those who are struggling to survive and those who lost everything due to wars or natural disasters. We transform their lives and strive to deliver and develop sustainable institutions to these vulnerable communities across the globe.

Striving for Excellence (Ihsaan)

“Verily Allah has prescribed proficiency/perfection in all things.” [Muslim]

Teebah Foundation makes every effort to reach excellence and apply ‘Ihsan’ in every single aspect of our relief work. For this reason we do our best to deliver over and above expectation. Like the old saying goes “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” we invest in local people with the objective of creating self-sufficient communities who will then have the tools to support themselves for generations to come.

By providing access to adequate health, education and community services, people will be able to break out of the poverty cycle and lead a healthy and successful life.

Teebah Foundation is determined to work towards restoring people’s dignity, equality and freedom regardless of their race, gender or belief. We provide practical, responsive and effective support where it is needed the most.

Teebah places a seed of hope in people’s heart and helps them grow and nurture it. We simply lay the foundations today to build a better tomorrow.

“He is not a believer whose stomach is filled while his neighbour goes hungry.” [Albani]

What we do?

“(The righteous are those) who feed the poor, the orphan and the captive for the love of God, saying: We feed you for the sake of God Alone; we seek from you neither reward nor thanks.” [76:9]
With the help of our local partners, Teebah Foundation is able to understand the needs of each region and have clear idea of the situation. This enables us to deliver immediate and efficient support to the people. Our work is normally categorised into three:

1-Help & protect

When crises such as natural disasters, wars or conflicts strike, we are there to offer a helping hand. We do not wait or think twice – Teebah Foundation is always ready and present. We do not only save lives but protect them and provide essential support such as clean water, nutritious food, warm clothing, medication and temporary shelters. It does not stop there because this leads us to the next category which is – empowerment and support.

2-Empower & support

We help people become stronger and rise from the ruins of poverty and pain. We support widows financially but we also teach and give them the tools to earn money and support their families. We do not give orphans food and clothing only but we also help them become successful and independent individuals who will make a change within their society. We do not send doctors or treat patients only but we build fully equipped hospitals. We empower people with education and knowledge and provide them with financial and moral support. We let the people be in control of their destiny; Teebah Foundation invests in people. Visit our appeals page for more details on the projects we run.

3-Lasting impact

We are always among the first charities to offer urgent and emergency help and also empower people. But our main goal is to make permanent changes and improve people’s lifestyle and giving them the power of changing the future. The doors to happy life is there, all we do is give the keys to the people and help them find their way out poverty and misery.
