After our busiest Ramadan to date, we wanted to thank you all for your generosity and support. Alhamdulillah this year we reached a new milestone and received £1.4m of Zakat. This is twice as much Zakat that was paid compared to last year. Our promise to you, is that the NZF team will work tirelessly and diligently to ensure that every pound of Zakat you have entrusted us with will be distributed in a manner that is timely, appropriate and brings the most benefit to our recipients. If you have any suggestions on how we can grow NZF in your locality or for any other queries, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Zakat at work
In July, we received a higher than average 121 applications and distributed £61,155 of Zakat funds to deserving recipients. This included several applicants who were awarded with settlement grants, which provide temporary support for asylum seekers who are not yet in receipt of home office support. Read more about some of the lives we have transformed on our blog, including Nasir who was unable to access welfare support when his marriage broke down, leaving him homeless. Read his story here.
