This Ramadan, ZF Is Going Above and Beyond
As the team of Zakat Foundation of America (ZF) distributed Ramadan food packages in Malaba, Uganda, Brother Anas, a beneficiary, shared a special message with ZF and its donors. With a smile that lit up his eyes, he commented how ZF has gone above and beyond by reaching every last man on the ground and prayed for every donor behind this generosity.
Brother Anas expressed, "The feeling on the ground is like a miracle...Many NGOs have come around that have not been able to reach the ground like Zakat Foundation of America has managed."
Joyful hearts in many other places like Malaba celebrated the relief felt upon receiving sustenance for the holy month. This Ramadan, like so many before, Zakat Foundation of America (ZF) has been actively serving the needs of the less fortunate in over 40 countries around the world.
During the first two weeks of Ramadan, food aid packages have been delivered to families struggling to meet this basic need in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Ghana, Guinea, India, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Pakistan, Palestine (West Bank), Syria, Tunisia, and Uganda. Varying based on the traditional diet of each location, these food aid packages included flour, sugar, rice, tea, oil, etc.

As this most merciful of months continues, may the Grace of Allah (swt) allow us to remain steadfast in opening the doors of mercy to those in need by delivering food aid, hosting iftar meals, distributing gifts of livestock, and presenting Eid gifts to orphans through ZF and its donors.
