Community Welfare Program
Providing access to basic needs for Muslims in need.
In times of severe financial difficulties, we have seen Muslims in need struggling to afford basic household items, food and medication to support themselves and their families. Due to this local need, NZF established an Essentials Vouchers system in 2013 for Muslim households around Australia. This ensured that they could securely access local services and were given the ability to choose essentials suited to their personal needs.
Over the years, NZF has moved on from food drives to establish its own essentials voucher system in partnership with small businesses and vendors around Australia in order to help reduce wastage, empower the receivers to buy their preferred essentials, while securing an income stream for these local vendors that have signed up for this program.
The Essentials Vouchers program is designed to assist Muslims in need in Australia who are experiencing financial difficulties and are unable to afford daily essentials due to a variety of reasons such as unemployment, homelessness, other critical expenses etc.
We are always looking to increase our network – so if you are a local store in Australia that provides general groceries, halal meat, pharmaceutical products or other essentials, please contact NZF via firstname.lastname@example.org or 1300 663 729 to sign up as a vendor.
