December update: 2016 at a glance
Alhamdulillah it was a productive year for the National Zakat Foundation. With your support, we reached a significant milestone for the UK Muslim community and ended 2016 having launched the UK's first ever Zakat Centre. We also received a total of 4,381 unique applications and distributed £4,711,244 of Zakat funds since our inception in 2011.
In 2017 we aim to serve individuals so they can understand, calculate and pay their Zakat with ease. We will continue to ensure those that are eligible to receive Zakat, are able to access our services.
Walking across London
Samir had been sleeping on the streets for a few weeks. With the nights turning bitterly cold, he got news of the Zakat Centre. He could not afford to travel by public transport, but he would walk across London just to find money for his next meal. Read his story here.
NZF would like to thank volunteers who donated prayer mats and multi-lingual Qur’ans to the Supported Housing Project in London.
