With 881,000 in need, Senegal suffers from food insecurity due to recurring floods and climate change. To address this need, Zakat Foundation of America representatives make their way into Senegal during peak times for Seasonal Islamic Giving: Ramadan and Eid al-Adha. Our donors allow us to provide warm meals throughout Ramadan and return about two months later to give fresh, locally raised, never-canned Udhiyah (Qurbani) meat.
Zakat Foundation In Senegal
Zakat Foundation of America supporters annually provide a full month of Iftar meals to generously feed hundreds of Muslim families in Ramadan. Just over two months later, Senegal’s food insecure receives thousands of pounds of Udhiyah (Qurbani) sacrifice annually from local Senegal-raised cattle.
