A Widows Struggle to Provide

June 18, 2023

Faiza and her family settled in Australia three years ago, However, their journey took a devastating turn when Faiza's husband unexpectedly passed away just three months ago, leaving her alone to raise their three orphaned children.

The weight of grief was further heightened by the financial burdens Faiza faced. Struggling to make ends meet, she found herself unable to afford the expenses associated with her husband's burial. The mounting bills and the ever-present worry of providing for her children took a toll on Faiza's well-being.

In her time of desperate need, Faiza heard about the National Zakat Foundation through a friend. Desperate for help, she reached out to NZF. Recognising the urgency of her situation, NZF promptly assessed Faiza's circumstances and determined her eligibility for Zakat assistance.

Through your Zakat, we were able to provide invaluable assistance to Faiza by settling her late husband's burial expenses, relieving her of the heavy financial obligation. Additionally, we extended support by covering her outstanding debts, including bills and groceries. The welfare of her orphaned children was also prioritised, guaranteeing that their fundamental needs will be consistently attended to moving forward.

Your Zakat made a significant impact in alleviating the burdens faced by Faiza and her family. The impact of your Zakat extends far beyond monetary assistance. It provided Faiza and her children with a sense of relief, stability, and hope for a better future. With the weight of debt lifted, Faiza could now focus on providing for her children's basic needs, ensuring they had a roof over their heads and food on the table, also given them the opportunity to begin healing and rebuilding their lives Insha’Allah.
