When It Feels Just Too Heavy

May 8, 2023

Hayfa's life felt like a never-ending rollercoaster ride of emotions. Her husband has multiple health conditions, and her youngest child is in high school. Her eldest child is estranged from the family, and her other child is currently incarcerated due to drug involvement, leaving her feeling as if the weight of the whole world is on her shoulders.

Things took a turn for the worse when she was asked to leave her residence due to her son's situation. With the soaring cost of rent in Australia Hayfa had no choice but to pack up everything and move into a new house, which meant paying bond and rent. It was a sudden move that caught her off guard, and with their sole income coming from Centrelink, she had to borrow money from friends. After paying for the rent and bond, she had no money left for necessities like groceries.

Hayfa was desperate for help, and that's when the National Zakat Foundation stepped in. We provided ongoing assistance with groceries until she and her family were settled. Hayfa was so grateful for the help she had received, and the grocery assistance helped her pay her loan off sooner.

Hayfa's story is a reminder that life can take an unexpected turn. If you or anyone you know is going through a difficult time, don't hesitate to reach out to us for help. We are here to support those in need and help them get back on their feet.
