OFAC DESIGNATES WORLD HUMAN CARE, INDONESIA-BASED NGO ESTABLISHED BY DESIGNATED TERRORIST GROUP MAJELIS MUJAHIDIN INDONESIA (MMI)

On 3 February, OFAC designated the NGO Majelis Mujahidin Indonesia (MMI) which provides financial support for MMI extremists in Syria under the guise of humanitarian aid.  MMI itself was designated in 2017.  It says that World Human Care has been used as a front to raise funds to support violent extremist activity. While it has engaged in some legitimate humanitarian activities, the main objective of the organisation was to serve as a cover to raise funds for MMI sympathisers in Syria.
