Emergency Relief

Emergency Relief - Zakat Foundation of America | Zakat Calculator | Muslim Charity | Muslim Aid

In the summer of 2006, a humanitarian crisis exploded in Lebanon as the country was gripped in armed conflict.

The United Nations warned heavily of a humanitarian crisis in the early days of the fighting and before all was said and done nearly 1 million people became displaced and several thousand had been killed in the crossfire.

Since Zakat Foundation had established a branch in the Mount Lebanon area since May of 2005, we had staff and volunteers on the ground delivering urgently needed food aid, clean drinking water, blankets, mattresses and basic medical aid. Naturally, our main area of operation was in Mount Lebanon at these public schools that had become shelters for displaced families from Beirut and further south.

We launched a major relief appeal to assist as many families as possible at these shelters for the immediate and urgent efforts to provide food, water, medical care and basic necessities as well as long-term relief efforts to those affected victims in Lebanon.

 

Zakat Foundation of America, a Muslim charity that collects zakat, sadaqa / donations to provide humanitarian, emergency relief and sustainable development programs to empower lives throughout the world. We offer top Zakat resources including The Zakat Handbook: A Practical Guide for Muslims in the West, Zakat kit, ask an Imam feature, and you can calculate and pay zakat through our easy, online calculator.
