The coronavirus pandemic is isolating individuals, families, and communities across the United Kingdom. Every week it is testing our character, both individually, and as a society. As we continue to self isolate to prevent the spread of the virus further, it has put some of the most vulnerable at risk of starvation.
But these individuals and families don't have to face this situation alone. We can come together as a society and help each other in these times of crisis.
In the United Kingdom, Muntada Aid is partnering with Yaseen Youth Development and a host of other organisations to help vulnerable individuals and struggling families with basic food and other domestic essentials. We are also providing hot halal meals to our brave men and women serving in the NHS.
This appeal is open to zakat donations. However, if we are not able to identify zakat eligible beneficiaries in the UK then we will allocate the zakat to Coronavirus victims abroad who we know are eligible.
