Kosovo - Zakat Foundation of America | Zakat Calculator | Muslim Charity | Muslim AidKosovo

Kosovo declared its independence in 2008, after years of tense ethnic conflicts with neighbors in throughout the region. Today, its citizens are the poorest in Europe, and its economy is heavily dependent on the international community to assist them to survive.

A 45% unemployment rate contributes to the high number of Kosovars living below the poverty line. Approximately 37% of the population struggles to survive on less than 2 dollars a day. The financial insecurity and instability that many Kosovars live with is heightened by the rampant societal corruption.  

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.
