At Zakat Foundation of America (ZF), we are always prepared to help.
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
ZF provides relief through the immediate distribution of:
- Food packages
- 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. True to its mission of empowering lives, ZF goes beyond emergency relief to ensure reconstruction efforts are set into motion in the afflicted area.
