When Life Savings Vanish to a Scam

June 16, 2023

Malik's journey as a final-year university student took an unexpected turn when he became a victim of a devastating scam that left him with no finances. With his tuition fee savings depleted, Malik faced the grim reality of his enrolment being cancelled, which would not only put his academic dreams on hold but also jeopardise his visa status and his daughter’s crucial medical treatment.

In dire need of support, Malik reached out to us at the National Zakat Foundation. We assessed Malik and found he was Zakat eligible. Recognising the importance of completing his course and the well-being of Malik's daughter, we covered his remaining tuition fees, removing the immediate threat of enrolment cancellation.

Your Zakat provided crucial assistance to Malik and his family during a challenging time. This brought immense relief to Malik. With his academic future secured, he could focus on completing his studies and pursuing his goals. Moreover, we ensured that his daughter’s vital medical treatment in Australia could continue uninterrupted. The weight of uncertainty and worry lifted, replaced by a renewed sense of hope for a brighter future.
