A message from the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) secretariat

I had the opportunity to film Jemilah Mahmood, Chief of the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) secretariat, delivering opening remarks on the potential of Zakat – one of the main tools of Islamic social financing – in humanitarian financing. More research is needed into how we can find ways to channel appropriate funding to meet increasing demands in the face of growing humanitarian challenges across the world. This was made possible by Development Initiatives, an independent organization working for poverty elimination.
