Zakat Foundation of America supporters and relief experts have created one of the most successful and far-reaching health care efforts for women in the world. Your generosity has enabled us to partner with five medical clinics in and around Bamako, reaching more than 40,000 Malian women annually.
Since 2015, we have created one of the most successful and far-reaching health care efforts for women. The combined care at five medical clinics now reaches more than 40,000 impoverished Malian women annually with critically needed care services and medicine.
In addition, lactation specialists have now trained thousands of mothers in breastfeeding, a critical link in the vital infant nourishment chain preventing debilitating malnutrition. We have created an important Motorcycle Prenatal Care program that sends mobile medical workers out to villages, ensuring adequate nutrition for unborn babies and mothers.
Malians suffer epidemic levels of malaria. Much of Mali’s water is unsafe for drinking, causing serious diarrhoeal diseases in children, and inadequate shelter has made child respiratory infections common. Your gifts have further provided essential COVID-19 support during this global pandemic, including crucial PPE (personal protective equipment, such as medical-grade masks, gowns, and gloves).
In addition, our acclaimed Livestock Animal Husbandry Program, Water Wells as Sadaqah Jariyah, Ramadan Iftar meals and freshly, Islamically, locally raised and slaughtered, and hand-delivered Udhiyah (Qurbani) sacrifice feed thousands of food-insecure Malians every year. Zakat Foundation donors also generously build mosques for impoverished communities, sponsor schools, and educational programs, and rush emergency relief to the desperate beset by natural disaster or victimized by conflicts.
