Zakat Foundation of America donors and relief specialists have played a crucial role in Somalia. Relief work in Somalia is exceedingly difficult given its ongoing internal conflicts, but mostly from the external violence constantly wreaked on its deeply impoverished, displaced, and now often nomadic population. 

In these desperate circumstances, our Emergency Relief efforts help the people of Somalia cope with the combination of human-engineered catastrophe, including famine, and natural disasters, highlighted by massive drought and a recent unprecedented invasion of locusts.

We have created a notable Water Program with a steady establishment of new communal Water Wells as Sadaqah Jariyah, especially serving areas with virtually no utility infrastructure. 

In addition, our Seasonal Islamic Giving Program via Ramadan Iftar meals for hundreds of families for the entire fasting month of Quran, and a much-needed high-protein injection into the caloric intake of thousands through Udhiyah (Qurbani) sacrifice has become absolutely essential for many Somalians.
