We are a non-profit organisation with an ambitious concept to improve the poverty situation in Kashmir, to offer health care and schooling to kids, and to offer clean, reliable, and sustainable water to areas of Pakistan & Kashmir.
Here are some specifics about us:
- The name ‘KORT’ is short for ‘KASHMIR ORPHAN RELIEF TRUST’.
- The charity was formed in 2005 after the devastating 7.6 magnitude earthquake hit the northern area of Pakistan and Kashmir. It was estimated that the death toll was over 100,000.
- KORT is a registered UK charity (No: 1113836) based in the UK and hence regulated by the Charities Commission.
- We work in Pakistan, Azad Kashmir and UAE.
- We have a 100% donation policy, to guarantee your gift goes precisely to your intended task rather than on our operating costs.
We have offered and executed thousands of Sadaqah and Zakat eligible projects ever since we started our work in Pakistan and Azad Kashmir. Our projects vary from orphan sponsorship to house builds for widows, water filtration plants to building schools in rural areas, food packages for the poor, providing wheelchairs to the disabled or providing sewing machines for poor women to become self-sustained. You can choose what you would like to donate towards.
Here are some projects we have delivered lately:

School in Mawa Islamghar KORT builds the School with an aim to provide basic primary education in a standard environment to make it comfortable and accessible for young learners in the remote areas.
Without you and your support, KORT could not possibly carry out any of the humanitarian work we do, so your belief in us is not just important, but it is vital.
The benefits of Zakat are considerable. It basically indicates development and cleansing. It is about cleansing one’s wealth in the way worshiping Allah purifies one’s soul. It is move you away from greed and selfishness. It is a kindness for the needy and deprived as it frees them for the humiliation of asking for help. It changes lives and relieves hardship.
The rules of Zakat suggest we need to guarantee your donation is spent precisely on the person entitled. Orphan children fall into this group.
Our pledge to you is that:
We will remain to keep our 100% donation policy and only utilize the gift aid we receive on your contribution to money administrative expenses.
We will be transparent with the work we do on our plans and projects and not only will we disclose you evidence of the work, but we also welcome you to check it out to see it first-hand.
