Ziaia Welfare has been helping the poor and needy in a remote part of Kashmir providing basic necessities on a regular basis to those who suffered from the earthquake.
We are a registered charity and have numerous ongoing programmes ranging form medical aid, food distribution, orphan sponsorship and educational projects. You can see more information on our website
This year our fundraising efforts have been severely impacted by the Coronavirus Crisis and as a result thousands of people who are in receipt of our ongoing aid distribution will suffer.
We are appealing for your Zakat donations during this blessed month to assist the extremely poor people in a rural region of Kashmir which is hours away from any cities.
Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam and is obligated amongst all Muslims. It has been paired with such a high sense of righteousness that it is often placed on the same level of importance as offering Salah. Zakat is the giving of a small percentage (2.5%) of a person’s possessions (surplus wealth) to poor and needy Muslims.
Zakat can only be given to one of the following types of person; people living in poverty and who have nothing, people who do not have enough to meet their basic needs in life, people who are needy and wish to enter Islam, those who are unable to pay off their debts and those who work to give Dawah.
Finally, you can give Zakat to those who collect it and distribute it to the people listed to receive it.
For the last eight years Ziaia Welfare has been distributing Zakat donations in the form of money, food, water and medical supplies.
