Imagine What Your Zakat Can Do for Refugees

Refugee and displaced families desperately need your help today. Every $920 of Zakat funds gathered allows one vulnerable family to cover their basic needs for an entire year. That’s one year of urgent cash support to provide shelter, food, water and medicine.

UNHCR: a trusted agent to fulfill your Zakat obligations

The Refugee Zakat Fund is fully compliant and backed by several fatwas from leading scholars and institutions.

It is permissible to give Zakat to USA for UNHCR for distribution to refugees and other families displaced by war and persecution. In such a case, UNHCR is considered an agent. The entirety of the collected Zakat will be distributed to recipients mentioned in Quran 9:60. None of it will be used to cover operations or wages; those are covered by other sources.
