Islamic Relief UK and NZF Collaborate Once Again to Address Escalating Muslim Hardship in the UK
Thursday 16th March, 2023
The rising cost of living has led to a record number of Muslims in the UK needing financial assistance just to make ends meet. This is evidenced by a dramatic surge in applications to National Zakat Foundation’s (NZF) Hardship Relief Fund over the past year.
In response to this pressing issue, Islamic Relief is once again trusting NZF to distribute a portion of its Zakat in the UK. The funds will be used to help Muslims cover the cost of essentials such as food, clothing and heating bills.
The partnership between Islamic Relief and NZF is entering its third consecutive year and exemplifies how prominent Islamic organisations are uniting to address the urgent needs of Muslims in our communities.
The £300,000 grant from Islamic Relief is the largest to date and will facilitate the distribution of Zakat to those in need across the UK. This will be accomplished through NZF’s extensive direct distribution service, reaching Muslim communities in towns and cities nationwide.
