Transform Lives

Give Zakat Now, Change Lives Forever

At NZF Canada, we are seeing a record number of applications from people suffering from homelessness, hunger and piling debt. Thousands are on the verge of eviction, with barely any food to feed their families. Despite government support, many still cannot make ends meet. We cannot turn away vulnerable Muslims who have no other options.

Provide Dignity

Your Zakat, Needed Here & Now

- Nearly 6 million go to bed hungry every night in Canada (Statistics Canada, 2021)
- 20% increase in food bank usage compared to pre-pandemic levels (Food Banks Canada, 2021)
- An estimated $5.3M is needed to cover the urgent and growing demand for local Zakat
- 140% Increase in applications as compared to last year alone

Your Zakat has made a tremendous impact in the lives of our neighbours since 2013, find out more here. No other country is going to send their Zakat to Canada, so if we don’t help our neighbours in need, who will? Learn more about our obligation towards them here.
