Why One Ummah Foundation is the Right Choice for Zakat This Ramadan

Updated: May 15, 2020

The holy month of Ramadan is the perfect time to reflect on our place in the world. Allah calls us to evaluate our impact and do what we can to improve the conditions of the world’s neediest people through zakat.

According to the United Nations, an estimated 821 million men, women, and children suffer from hunger. Millions more require urgent humanitarian aid just to survive.

This Ramadan and beyond, partner with One Ummah Foundation for zakat or a recurring donation. We’ll ensure your blessing reaches the furthest corners of the planet where it’s needed most in places like Yemen, Somalia, and Sri Lanka.

For Much of the World, Fasting Doesn’t End with Ramadan

When we fast during Ramadan, we briefly experience the daily reality for many of our brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity. For millions of people around the world, daily fasting doesn’t end with Eid – it’s a way of life.

  • In Yemen: A child dies every ten minutes from preventable causes, and the healthcare system is on the brink of collapse.

  • In Senegal: 47% of people live in poverty.

  • In Sub-Saharan Africa: Nearly a third of children are pushed into child labor.

  • Zakat isn’t just a pillar of Islam, and it’s critical to help spread the blessings Allah has bestowed on us to the rest of the world.

Why Choose One Ummah Foundation for Zakat This Ramadan?

At One Ummah Foundation, we primarily work in areas where the sole breadwinner in a family makes just $1 or $2 each day. These are families with no running water or electricity – let alone the transportation or resources to send their children to school.

We’re a catalyst to support local non-profits that understand the needs of the community because they live there themselves. When you give zakat to One Ummah this Ramadan, 100% of your donation directly improves the material conditions of these suffering families.

Poverty and hunger are year-round problems, so One Ummah thrives on recurring donations.

We evaluate the most pressing needs of people, identify immediate problems, and see projects through to completion with a holistic perspective.

Whether it be a school uniform or lunch, One Ummah is there with empathy and dignity.

Join Us in Lifting Families with Zakat This Ramadan and Beyond

We’ve served humanity for over 20 years across 13 countries with over one million meals and other necessities. Join One Ummah this Ramadan to lift families with your zakat and improve the lives of children around the world.

We are truly “one people” regardless of faith or sect, and your kindness can make a tangible difference today in the lives of those who need it most. Don’t forget that poverty is a 24/7 problem, so please consider setting up a recurring donation this holy month.

Be a shining light for a family in Yemen, Bangladesh, or Sub-Saharan Africa this Ramadan and donate now.
