What is the GiveZakat App. and why was it created?

The GiveZakat App is a mobile application that allows you to dedicate your Zakat and Sadaqah to refugees and displaced people in need, or make a regular donation that can help a person or entire families to secure their basic needs, at your convenience and at the click of a button

Today, the number of refugees and forcibly displaced people around the world has surpassed the 82 million. We are living a global refugee crisis of unprecedented scale. More than 60% of refugees come from countries in the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Accordingly, UNHCR initiated the Refugee Zakat Fund to works as link between Zakat donors and Zakat eligible refugees and internally displaced people, especially with the rising interest of our supporters in the region in providing help to the eligible with their Zakat.

In 2019, UNHCR launched the Refugee Zakat Fund, a trusted, compliant, and effective distributor harnessing the power of Zakat to transform the lives of refugee and displaced families worldwide. The Fund is subject to rigorous governance, ensuring transparency at every step, from donation to distribution of Zakat funds to eligible families. By the end of 2019, the GiveZakat App. was launched to allow interested supporters for refugees around the world to dedicate their Zakat and Sadaqah in an easy and simple way through their mobile phones.
