Zakat Foundation In Bangladesh
Zakat Foundation of America has provided a full spectrum of aid and long-term support programs in Bangladesh for two decades — including to its massive refugee population of Rohingya victims of Myanmar’s ongoing genocide of these Burmese natives.
Zakat Foundation of America supports a crucial Orphan Sponsorship Program now undergoing major growth. This includes complete sponsorship — facilities, teachers, supervisors, children, food, clothing, and all educational and health needs.
We have provided significant relief to combat the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic. Our workers and volunteers have equipped health care workers, including our own onsite, and other exposed essential workers with critical PPE.
Bangladesh’s impoverished have been the earliest participants in our Livestock Animal Husbandry Program. Mating pairs of cattle are provided to provide sustainable food security. We have augmented the country’s water security by digging communal Water Wells as Sadaqah Jariyah, particularly in previously underdeveloped and remote rural villages. This is important because Bangladesh suffers from high rates of arsenic toxicity in its water.
