For thousands displaced by harsh tragedies and natural calamities, your Zakat helps take care of their family needs for food, water, shelter, medicine and more. During these blessed days, your Zakat dedication has a lasting impact on those most vulnerable, providing urgent cash assistance for core relief items they need most.
With a 100% guarantee that your Zakat reaches those in need, dedicate it with confidence – the Refugee Zakat Fund is compliant, and they are eligible.
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.
Please use the following bank account details: Kindly note the different IBAN for each currency.
In the transfer description field, please use “Zakat MENA” followed by the destination country of your Zakat (Syria, Jordan, Yemen, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Tunisia, India or Somalia). Please note that UNHCR is committed to distributing 100% of your Zakat contribution to eligible beneficiaries. However, if you would like to help UNHCR cover the costs of Zakat distribution, we encourage you to consider a voluntary 6.5% Sadaqah donation on top of your Zakat contribution. In this case, please add in the description "includes Sadaqah".
Please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org when the bank transfer is done. Please make sure to include your name, the amount of your donation, contact info and country of residence. This will help us track your donation and update the counter of the families supported. If you decide to top up your Zakat donation with a 6.5% Sadaqah donation, please mention in your email that the amount of your donation includes a 6.5% Sadaqah donation. You can also, if you prefer, do two different transfers, one for the Zakat amount only, and one for the Sadaqah amount only.
Please include your contact details (Email and phone number) when proceeding with the transfer so we can confirm receiving your gift and communicate with you properly
Exceptionally for Zakat funds, UNHCR has waived its standard 6.5% indirect support costs, 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.
