Public Notice

following recent advert made on Islamic relief website, the organization has received several  complaints from  members of the public that  unscrupulous people purporting to be from Islamic relief have been calling them claiming to help them secure a job with the organization and hence soliciting money from them.

Members of the public  are therefore warned  that these individuals DO NOT represent IR Kenya. Further, the public are notified that  IR Kenya does not charge any fee during and after the  recruitment process and hence advised to ignore such people as con men or women.

Thank you All
