Ar-Rahmah Trust (ART) was launched in 2006 and is a small Islamic faith based NGO/CSO registered charity based in Birmingham UK. Our charity has an aim to alleviate the suffering of vulnerable orphans, whilst also providing the poor and needy with help by giving them food aid, shelter, healthcare, education and vocational training.

In order to achieve our aims we are currently work alongside many different organisations to achieve our objectives aiding people locally and internationally.
