About Us - United Foundation for Global Development (UFGD)
Welcome to UFGD.org, the online presence of the United Foundation for Global Development. At UFGD, our mission is deeply rooted in the principles of charity, compassion, and community. As a faith-based organization inspired by the teachings of Islam, we are driven by the belief that we are called upon to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need, regardless of their faith or background. Our core values unite us in a shared commitment to serve humanity and uphold the teachings of our Creator.
Guided by Faith, Serving All: A Universal Message of Charity
In the Quran, it is written: "The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills." (Quran 2:261) This verse encapsulates the essence of giving in charity – a fundamental tenet of our faith that transcends all barriers.
Our belief is further echoed in the Bible: "Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap." (Luke 6:38) and in the Torah: "If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother." (Deuteronomy 15:7)
Unity Beyond Differences: Embracing the Power of Giving
Regardless of the diverse faiths and backgrounds that enrich our global community, we share a common thread – the Creator who calls us to compassionately serve one another. This Creator, irrespective of the name by which we address Him, unites us as a single human family. At UFGD, our actions speak louder than words, as we demonstrate our commitment to the betterment of lives, driven by the knowledge that our benevolence is an offering to the One who oversees all.
