Our Initiatives

At NZF we aim to utilise Zakat funds collected in Australia to provide a lifeline for local, deserving recipients. This group consists of some of the most vulnerable members of our community, including widows, orphans, refugees, the elderly and the homeless.

Emergency Relief

Our highest priority and most basic type of assistance is providing immediate temporary accommodation to a sister who is on the street, or assisting with funeral expenses for a sudden death in the family or many more emergency situations.

Refugee Programs

We run programs to help refugees manage their circumstances whilst living in the community such as financial assistance, helping them in enrolling their children in school, networking within the local community, finding a rental house and more.

Food Vouchers

Since 2013, we have built a network of businesses such as grocers and butchers through whom a Zakat recipient can redeem NZF Food Vouchers. This ensures Zakat funds are being used to empower multiple entities within our local community.

Personal Services

We have partnered with various professional services such as financial planners, 20, training institutes, employment agencies etc. where we are able to refer suitable clients to use their services often free of charge.

Crisis Centers

A few homes in NSW have been leased to serve as short term accommodation that provide a safe environment particularly for our sisters while going through a period of difficulty such as escaping from domestic violence.

School Grants

We provide grants to families who are unable to provide for basic necessities for children to go to school at the start of the school year.
