SUPPORT GAZA EVACUEES

Providing Hope and Stability for Gaza Families

As people from Gaza continue to evacuate into Canada, National Zakat Foundation and our community partners are committed to assisting the individuals and families who are rebuilding their lives in Canada and working to become self-sufficient.

How We’re Responding

A coalition of Canadian Islamic charities and NGOs has come together to ensure that the families are supported with all their financial and (re)settlement needs.

Since November 2023, National Zakat Foundation has been supporting Gaza evacuees with financial and settlement support.

- $1.5M Distributed

- 351 Individuals Supported

- 93 Households Impacted

As of April 2024, a second wave of Gaza evacuees have started arriving through the Canadian Government’s Family Reunification Program, which allows Palestinian Canadians to bring their extended relatives to Canada, and your continued support is crucial to this cause.

Why We Need Your Support

While this new wave of Gaza evacuees already have anchor families here in Canada, many of these families have already invested all their savings into helping their relatives cross the border to safety.

As a result, they are pressed for space, food and other basic needs, unable to sustain their relatives’ livelihoods in Canada.

Your continued support is needed today. Gaza evacuees urgently need support with food, accommodation and general resettlement needs.

Your donations will help us ensure that all those who have escaped the constant terror in Gaza are provided with a successful settlement journey in Canada and a safe and dignified life in their new home.

*This program is Zakat-eligible.

Request for Privacy and Confidentiality

The families have requested that unless they give express permission, that media outlets as well as elected officials respect the privacy of all evacuees from Gaza when they land. It is important to note that many of them have just been through extraordinarily difficult circumstances and it is not appropriate to turn that moment into a photo op.

**Additional funds collected will be used to provide essentials to eligible beneficiaries throughout the year.**
