UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is a global organization dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people.
For more than 70 years, UNHCR has worked around the clock to save and protect the lives of refugee and displaced families all over the world. Our core mandate and ground-work set the global benchmarks for the provision of aid.
The UN Refugee Agency has restructured its Zakat programme into a global fund, the Refugee Zakat Fund: a trusted, efficient and pioneering Sharia-compliant structure that harnesses the power of Zakat to make a positive impact on the world. In providing a fast, efficient, discreet and safe way for people to fulfill their Zakat obligations, through secure digital payments, the Refugee Zakat Fund is bringing Zakat provision into the modern era.
100% of Zakat funds support UNHCR’s cash assistance and emergency programmes for refugee and displaced families from Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Mali and Myanmar.
