Response to Humanitarian Crisis

Food insecurity, lack of access to proper health care services and clean drinking water have exacerbated the situation in this natural disaster-prone region. Since 2008 Zakat Foundation has been in the region and increased its relief efforts following the earthquake that shocked Haiti in 2010. Zakat Foundation is committed to helping the people of Haiti and providing food security programs on a daily basis.
