Prioritising Your Health

November 6, 2023

Shanay is a resilient single mother courageously caring for seven children, three of whom are under kinship care with her. Her responsibilities are further complicated as her second eldest son faces a challenging medical condition that impacts his ability to work. Adding to the difficulties, Shanay herself battles a medical condition and relies on a disability pension for support.

However, her plea for assistance goes beyond the routine challenges of life. She is seeking help to address a crucial aspect of her well-being—her teeth. The condition has left her unable to eat or speak properly, significantly affecting her daily life.

Shanay reached out to us at NZF regarding the need to have her teeth fixed. After assessment, we determined that Shanay is eligible for Zakat. Your Zakat covered all her dental costs, and now she no longer lives in pain.

If you or someone you know is experiencing hardship and you're unsure whether you/they are eligible for Zakat, please don't hesitate to contact us at NZF for assistance.
