Emergency Relief

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

The Cyclone Nargis that hit the shores of Myanmar has devastated vast populated areas across the south of the country. The scale of destruction and loss is massive. There are alarming reports of entire villages destroyed, their populations missing.

Those who survived are still at risk of contracting malaria and water-borne diseases. Zakat Foundation is working with the Red Cross of Myanmar and the Red Crescent of Bangladesh and Malaysia to administer emergency aid and to organize food distribution around the affected towns and villages.

The UN has warned that the death toll exceeds 100,000, and that many more may die unless vital aid reaches some 1.5 million survivors. Zakat Foundation has pledged $122,500 for Emergency Relief by supporting 1,000 families. We urge you to help the people of Myanmar. A donation $250 will provide 10 families with what they need to survive and each donation of $25 provides one family with food and clean water.

 

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.
