Jeddah, (UNA-OIC) – The Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) are organizing an online webinar titled “Innovation in Muslim Philanthropy”, set to kick off on Monday. 
“The Islamic world has historically made significant contributions in the fields of mathematics and science as well as making major advances in astronomy, medicine, and engineering. Equally, it has also been at the forefront of philanthropy, with models such as Waqf (endowments) and interest-free microfinance loans. Following in this great tradition of being at the forefront of innovative ideas, UNICEF and the Islamic Development Bank have jointly established the Global Muslim Philanthropy for Children (GMPFC), to strategically deploy both Sadaqah and Zakat, with global standards of transparency and accountability, while addressing the root causes and impacts of inequality for vulnerable children in the world,” read the invitation to join the webinar. 
The webinar aims to explore how utilizing modern technology and innovative techniques can be used by Muslim Philanthropists to help vulnerable children around the world.
