Aurore is in charge of a large aid project in Mali run by the French organization Secours Islamique. Nadia works for the same group, helping the homeless in the banlieues of Paris. And in Germany, a young convert to Islam, Abdurrahman, provides aid to the needy in his neighborhood, ships donated supplies to Syria, and supports a mosque-building project in Ghana. This documentary shows that all three aid workers recognize their religious obligation to help improve the lives of those in need. But when it comes to political Islam, their views differ sharply. Secours Islamique is wary of politicizing aid. The same is not true of Abdurrahman and his association. What motivates these young people, who work in the name of their faith at a time of mounting inter-religious tension? On average, annual donations to Secours Islamique are two-and-a-half times greater than those received by the Red Cross. Muslim aid organizations are playing an increasingly prominent role on the world stage. They distribute hundreds of millions of euros worth of aid, supplied by countries and mono-faith organizations for such causes as refugee camps in Turkey, civil defense in Syria, or as direct aid. Muslim aid organizations today play an indispensible role in international humanitarian relief.
