Named after one of history's most notable Muslim females, Khadijah bint Khuwaylid, KBK Relief Foundation is a organization with an all Muslim female Board of Directors. We aim to alleviate suffering and minimize the economic costs of conflict, disasters, and displacement. We aim to empower women in need by providing support and opportunities.
KBK Relief Foundation is a non-profit 501c3. We promise 100% of all donations go directly to families and individuals in need. We never take anything from your donation. In fact, we personally (along with a few loyal sponsors) cover all overhead costs. Just as Khadijah bint Khuwaylid spent her riches on the destitute, KBK will strive to honor her distinct character.
WHAT WE DO
Our organization is dedicated to serving those in need locally in MI, and internationally. With humanitarian efforts as our number one goal, we strive to make lives better and give hope to those whose lives have been impacted by war, oppression and poverty. We currently have ongoing projects in Yemen and Pakistan, but have worked in Iraq and for the refugees in Greece. We have personal contacts in the places we work to guarantee the project is completed to your expectations.

KBK Relief Foundation was officially founded in 2018. Long before we were established, our trusted board members have strived to offer humanitarian services to those in need within their respective communities.
After much consideration we then decided it was time to establish our own organization; one that would bring all of our communities together and work towards providing aid in a more official, transparent capacity. Even with our non-profit seal we continue to provide our services voluntarily never deducting a penny from your donation. Please support us with the pure intention in knowing that 100% of what you give will go directly towards our cause.
