Trudging through the rain and mud, many families found hope at stations set up on European borders by Zakat Foundation of America (ZF) staff and volunteers, distributing food aid as well as winter clothing and shoes as a protection from the harshness of cold.
ZF remained on the frontlines of helping to alleviate the suffering of refugees crossing Europe last winter. ZF aid workers were active in refugee camps, distributing winter kits that included coats, gloves, scarves, boots, and more. Thanks to our generous donors, over 23,000 winter kits were distributed in 14 countries, providing safety and warmth to beneficiaries during the cold season.
With your continued support this winter, ZF can reach even more refugees who are struggling to stay warm. Preparations are already underway to distribute life-saving winter clothing to refugees and internally displaced survivors of the conflicts in Iraq, Syria, Palestine, and more.
With just a $60 donation, you can provide a winter kit of warm clothing and save a life from the harshness of winter. And, remember, your timely donation by #GivingTuesday on Nov. 29th counts toward your end-of-year tax deduction.
Please Note: Many employers offer corporate matching gift programs that may help double the impact of your donation. To check if such a program is available at your place of employment, please click here.
