Emergency Relief - Zakat Foundation of America | Zakat Calculator | Muslim Charity | Muslim Aid Equipment on shipping skids

Zakat Foundation partnered with Children of Abraham, a nonprofit organization with the principal mission of fostering reliable healthcare around the world, to ship a container of medical supplies and computers to Ghana on Saturday, July 18, 2009.

The 40-foot container was filled with more than 800 boxes of medical supplies, desktop computers and backpacks with school sup- plies with an estimated total worth of more than 1.5 million US dollars. More than 30 volunteers from local area churches, Munster High School, Children of Abraham, Anidaso Health and Zakat Foundation worked hand-in-hand in a warehouse in Munster, Indiana, packing and loading remarkable gifts for Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi and Zakat Foundation’s school in Ghana.

Zakat Foundation’s Ghana Country Director, Mr. Salia Alhassan, is a professional pharmacist who also works at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. Mr. Alhassan assessed the most urgent needs of the hospital that would best serve the tens of thou- sands of patients who seek medical care there every year. Surplus medical supplies were donated by Northwest Indiana and Chicago-area hospitals. The school supplies and backpacks were donated through Zakat Foundation’s Backpack Program and will be distributed to needy orphans.
