Zakat recipient Muhammad talks to BBC News about the shocking and stressful circumstances he was in and how NZF helped him survive.

Having lost his construction job due to the pandemic, Muhammad found himself fighting a losing battle to pay his rent and provide for his wife and two young children. Forced to spend two days without any energy supply and go without food so he could feed his kids instead, Muhammad finally got the help he needed thanks to local Zakat.

His story is a stark reminder of the sheer levels of hardship many are experiencing in the UK

With the economic fallout of coronavirus expected to throw many more people into poverty and joblessness, your Zakat will be used in the coming weeks and months to help many others just like Muhammad.
