This year, winter comes to tighten the hardship of refugees in the region who are already living in extreme conditions. Many families will require UNHCR’s humanitarian assistance to survive the cold months ahead. Every $345 of Zakat funds received will allow 1 vulnerable family to cover their immediate needs for the entire winter. Through providing urgent cash assistance for families to afford their heating costs, warm food and clothes for their children, and medicine if needed, you can help a vulnerable family in need to stay safe and warm all winter long.
Most refugees and IDPs are deserving of your Zakat, as they live in extremely difficult circumstances, having lost almost everything, except their faith in a better tomorrow.
You can calculate your Zakat here and dedicate it to eligible families who have fled devastating crises. 100% of your Zakat is guaranteed to reach those in need as lifesaving cash or goods.

This support goes in full to help families affected by lockdowns and lack of economic opportunities. Exceptionally for Zakat funds, UNHCR has waived its standard 6.5% indirect support costs, in order to ensure that 100% of your Zakat goes directly to the most vulnerable families. Any expenses associated with the distribution of Zakat are covered by other sources of funding to UNHCR.
