From Dreams to Challenges

September 7, 2023

Imagine travelling to Australia with your young family, all in pursuit of a better life through education. Aashir's dream was just that – studying for a diploma, ensuring his family's well-being, and working two jobs to make ends meet. Life was simple, happy, and free from financial worries, until the unexpected occurred, Aashir's young child was diagnosed with cancer.

In an instant, their world turned upside down. As non-Australian citizens, they found themselves facing towering medical bills, with no choice but to pay out of pocket for their child's essential treatments. These expenses began to mount, adding to the burden of keeping up with rent, groceries, and other necessities.

Aashir was referred to NZF through a public servant. Following our Zakat assessment, NZF stepped in to provide the vital assistance that Aashir and his family desperately required. Your Zakat assisted Aashir and his family by covering the outstanding medical costs, ensured their rent was paid, and supplied essential provisions.

Easing the financial burden from their shoulders, Aashir and his family can now devote their time to concentrating on their child's health.
