I mean, yes. So that's why our finance team, for example, although say you go abroad on a dour trip and you buy, for example, food for lunch, and you're given five pound for lunch, for example, okay? And it's part of a reimbursement policy, if you go to a developing country and two pounds will be enough for good meal to satisfy you. And you got three pounds left. If you spend that three pounds on like 10 doughnuts, you're paying that money back. Why? Because it's not about you should use all the money that's given to you for your subsistence. You should be scrupulous, and exactly, and the finance team, they have an ability to reject unreasonable spending costs. Let me tell you something,

00:00:39--> 00:00:50

bro. One of our members of the team, they paid back money. No, because they misused money, they used it properly. I think they lost an invoice.

00:00:51--> 00:00:55

Yeah, they paid back 1000 pounds. No.

00:00:56--> 00:01:34

Zombies on Ben's $1 material or Burcu Mercedes Benz a dow material that they can't reuse the ethic is that they get money from their pocket, and they put it into this blue money thing to give it back to IRA because they've they've they've they've damaged something that actually belongs to the ummah. And this is the kind of things that we want to promote, especially adult content is sometimes down in money. There's a bit of a negative reputation to the point. We'll start off with Dean, he said to us that we should publicize our reimbursement policy. Yeah, I mean, yeah.

00:01:35--> 00:02:12

But look, I'm not saying this is to praise I error, or it's leadership. It's just, this is basics. Yeah, that's what I'm trying to say this is basics. We should be taken to the account, we should be transparent, we should have multiple structures in place. Even leaders within the organization should be transparent and should be taken into account. We should have procedures in place that prevent from any wrongdoing, even the slightest, we should develop ourselves. This is all basic stuff. It's basic. And it's unfortunate that we hear about Iran. We're not the only organization. I don't say, Oh, look, we're the only one No, I'm just I'm saying this because this is this we need to

00:02:12--> 00:02:25

create a narrative about the dour and the dour when it comes to charity. And when it comes to organizations and institutions, that we have a moral bar, right and we have to achieve it.
