Zakat Foundation has been intensifying immediate relief efforts in Haiti where a major earthquake struck Tuesday, January 12, 2010 and has possibly killed thousands of people. According to the UN this is the strongest earthquake to hit the Caribbean nation in 200 years.

Zakat Foundation has come up with a unique model due to the tremendous challenges in Haiti. We have organized the local Muslim community volunteers who are working with the Zakat Foundation staff. They purchase supplies daily in the neighboring Dominican Republic and truck them in to their distribution points in Port-au-Prince. Our distribution point is the open camp below the St. Clare Church. Zakat Foundation runs a clinic and daily hot food distribution center feeding 2,000-3,000 regularly. Other distribution locations include the Masjid Tahweed and an abandoned amusement park, Bojeux Park, where our partner organization IMANA (Islamic Medical Association of North America) treats and provides food packages to 300 people daily.
