We Believe in the Power of Empathy

Ummet Vakfi is an independent Non-Profit Organization registered in Istanbul, Turkey, with a registration license issued in 2013. For more than 5 years, we have been relentlessly working on serving Palestinian Jerusalemites in Al-Quds through projects that aim at reviving the economy of East Jerusalem, decreasing unemployment amongst Palestinians in Al-Quds, empowering women and children, supporting and developing the education system, providing adequate healthcare, and protecting Al-Aqsa mosque and East Jerusalem’s cultural heritage.

We operate through investing in constant endowments and using the income to support our many projects. We also accept direct donations to Al-Quds.

Throughout these 5 years, with your support and contribution, we have been able to help thousands of Palestinian Jerusalemites: students, women, workers, healthcare staff, teachers, and children, etc.

We believe that mere sympathy towards the less privileged never helps. Actions always speak louder than words; that’s why we don’t sympathize…we empathize…we take actions and responsibility; standing for the powerless in their struggle against fear and poverty.

Why Al-Quds?
