God is the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate.  Muslims say this many times every day.  It reminds us to emulate Him.

It is hard to separate politics from humanitarian issues, but here are some of my favorite sites that focus on helping the needy, and are not so “political” in tone.

I will post charities in Palestine and the Middle East separately, God willing.
