Emergency Relief

Zakat Foundation of America

Disaster can strike at any time.

Whether a tsunami, hurricane, earthquake or civil war, calamities can occur instantaneously, or, like economic disasters, can build up over time to consume the most vulnerable members of society.

Through regional offices around the world, ZF responds quickly to natural and man-made disasters. ZF Emergency Relief programs act to address the immediate needs of those who have been overwhelmed by catastrophe through the distribution of:

Zakat Foundation Emergency Aid Items:

  • Food packages
  • Medicine
  • Hygiene packages
  • Temporary shelter

For many communities, emergency aid must be accompanied by development initiatives to decrease the dependence on outside assistance and create momentum towards recovery and self-reliance.
