SKT Welfare is an NGO, UK-registered charity, and USA not-for-profit (EIN: 46-3973114, 501c3 status pending) founded in 2008. It has a 100% donation policy and we pride ourselves on volunteerism.
We have an institutional approach, with competent and experienced management running the charity. The charity is governed by strong quality control, audit trails, policies and procedures.
SKT Welfare delivers humanitarian aid and solutions regardless of race, political affiliation, gender or belief. Our aim is to help relieve the suffering of the world’s poorest communities and make a difference to those most in need.
At an early stage of SKT Welfare’s life, education played a central role in our major projects. We believe it serves as the backbone for sustainable change. The charity has accomplished several projects over the past few years, in the UK, Pakistan, Morocco and Somalia. However, since the onset of the crisis in Syria we have re-oriented all our efforts towards addressing the humanitarian fallout from this conflict, and have become instrumental in delivering aid to Syrians both inside Syria and within refugee camps in neighbouring countries. The charity has evolved and adapted itself successfully to what is an extremely difficult conflict zone to function within, operationally and logistically. We have delivered vast amounts of medical aid, food, clothing, baby packs and financial support already.
SKT Welfare’s work in Syria targets the most vulnerable as its priority; the injured, orphans, widows, the homeless and refugees. The current focus is largely on relief work and getting aid to the needy. However, when Syria returns to a more democratic set-up, the country will still be devoid of an adequate public health system (because it has collapsed as a result of the on-going civil war), institutions will need to be rebuilt and provisions for civilian welfare will be required. There will be a lot of re-development work to be done post-crisis and our vision is to take a lead role in the rebuild. The work that we are undertaking now and the reputation we are building up is critical in fulfilling this objective.
