When Shereen fell behind on her rent, she was terrified of losing her home. Unable to access benefits, she felt alone and didn’t know where to seek help.
Your Zakat helped her avoid eviction and feel safe and cared for by her community.
Shereen had always been hardworking, but despite her best efforts, she found herself in great difficulty when she fell behind on her rent. Her low-income job and the spiralling cost of living made it impossible to make ends meet.
To make matters more challenging, Shereen’s residential status barred her from accessing crucial housing benefits, and with no family and friends to turn to for help, she felt very alone and overwhelmed with her situation.
Shereen found herself stuck; she could neither secure government assistance nor bridge the growing gap between her income and her mounting bills. Faced with eviction, Shereen didn’t know where to turn to for help.
Thankfully, she learned about NZF at her local mosque and immediately applied to the Housing Fund for help. Her application was accepted, and she received the financial support needed to avoid eviction from her home – her only place of safety and security.
Your Zakat provided a lifeline for Shereen when she needed it most.
Beyond the financial relief, your support reminded her that she wasn’t alone and that her community was there for her in her time of need.
