Frequently Asked Questions
DO YOU ONLY HELP MUSLIM PEOPLE IN SINGAPORE?
No. Global Ehsan Relief (GERSG) helps everyone in Singapore who needs it the most - regardless of race, religion, or gender.
HOW DOES GLOBAL EHSAN RELIEF RAISE FUNDS? HOW ARE THEY SPENT?
Our funds come from institutions, businesses, interest groups, and generous individuals worldwide. GERSG undertakes several projects such as Ehsan Baby Care, Care For Elderly, Care For Orphans Families and many more. A small portion of this fund goes to running costs such as staffing, equipment, transport, and delivery of the aid to the beneficiaries.
Annual, quarterly and project reports are also available to the public to download on our website.
WHAT DIFFERENTIATES GLOBAL EHSAN RELIEF FROM OTHER CHARITIES?
GERSG views charity through Islamic teachings as a duty. We do not only distribute monthly essentials but we also keep track of our beneficiaries’ progress closely to help them to alleviate individually so that they can stand on their own feet without relying on others in the near future by giving them business opportunities and channeling them to relevant parties to upgrade their skills to generate income.
WHAT ARE GLOBAL EHSAN RELIEF’S ACCOUNTABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY MEASURES?
As we are a faith-based charity our primary accountability is to Allah, the Almighty. GERSG is accountable for its actions to its donors, beneficiaries, and the public at large within the prescribed rules, procedures, and processes.
GERSG adheres to an accountability framework and seeks to provide justice for all, promotion and awareness of the rights of people and treating them with the respect they deserve regardless of their faith or ethnic background, and accountability both for our own actions and those of our partners.
