Zakat collected are used to procure merchandise goods, vocational materials, and equipment among others. This, we do in order to assist the poor to establish small-scale enterprises or re-positioning of existing ones.



As a matter of priority, this is one area that touches our heart deeply. We help those in need to off-set their bills, procure medications, treatment, under-go surgical operations within and outside the country as the situation demands.
