Dedicate your Zakat to refugees who are unable to reach the safety of home this Ramadan.

For the second year, refugees are living in an "emergency within an emergency", and more families need our help to face the challenges to come. Zakat funds allow us to cover the immediate needs of families living under the extreme poverty line.

If anyone is eligible for Zakat, it is those who have lost everything except their hope in a better tomorrow. Take a second to give your Zakat to those who need it the most today.

Calculate your Zakat below and offer it to a refugee or displaced family who fled some of the world’s most devastating crises. 100% of your Zakat is guaranteed to reach refugees as lifesaving cash or in kind assistance.

UNHCR: Trusted Zakat Distributor

A trusted, compliant and effective distributor.

Majority of the world’s 26 million refugees fall under at least 4 of the 8 Zakat categories. UNHCR's Refugee Zakat Fund is compliant and backed by 5 fatwas, mentioning 3 essential points: UNHCR can distribute Zakat funds, Zakat must be given to the categories mentioned in Quran 9:60, and Zakat must not be used to cover expenses or wages.

How your Zakat helps vulnerable refugee and displaced families

Vulnerable families are often headed by women alone who often face cultural, legal and childcare obstacles when looking for work. Providing refugee families with cash or in kind assistance prevents those most in need from having to resort to desperate survival strategies – such as pulling children out of school or child labour.

Cash assistance in particular ensures that the immediate needs of families are met according to their own priorities. This also means that thousands of refugees who are restricted from working in host countries avoid facing severe hardships, while being empowered to manage their own finances. It helps to improve social networks through enabling refugees to repay loans borrowed from family, neighbours, and landlords, thereby reducing household tensions. Additionally, it benefits the local economy as refugees become customers at local shops and markets.
