As the world is grappling with coronavirus pandemic, we are continuing our operations amid these extraordinary times globally and we are also supporting vulnerable communities in the UK.
It is in the philosophy of Islam that we do not turn our eyes of the suffering from which some may spare their sight.
Zakat, a religious obligation is very unique to the Islamic faith and is a powerful source of good.
By donating your Zakat with Muntada Aid, you can help thousands of children and their families in some of the poorest regions of our planet and in the process will also contribute towards building sustainable societies.
All Muslims eligible to pay Zakat must donate at least 2.5% of their accumulated wealth for the benefit of the poor. As one of the five pillars of Islam, zakat is mandatory giving.
A year ago, Jana was diagnosed with Congenital Heart Disease or CHD. The poor socio-economic situation of her parents meant that Jana was not receiving the medical intervention she needed. Her father works as a construction day-labourer in Hamadi, which is some 60 kilometres from the historic town of Luxor in Egypt.
Last year, a local doctor informed the family about our Little Hearts Mission that was taking place at Qena University Hospital between 28th of June to 5th of July 2019. The family travelled to the ancient town where Jana was observed by our team of internationally renowned paediatric cardiac specialists. She was admitted to the hospital and went through a successful intervention.
