Feed the Fasting this Ramadan

With your help, we can support thousands of poverty-stricken children and families in Pakistan

All year round, the Zia Ul Ummah Foundation provides free education, accommodation and school meals to 30,000 disadvantaged students across Pakistan.

And through our emergency food banks, we distribute hot meals and food packs every day to nearly 2,000 Pakistanis who are living in poverty.

This Ramadan, we’re raising vital funds to keep our schools open, and to make sure no child or family goes hungry.

Donate now to provide life-saving food and life-changing education to some of the most vulnerable communities in Pakistan.

Give your Zakat to families that need it most

It’s easy for you to pay your Zakat (and Zakat-Ul-Fitr) through the Zia Ul Ummah Foundation, as all our food programmes are 100% Zakat eligible.

Every day, we use your donations to distribute food packs and Iftar to children, widows, the sick, the elderly and single mothers who rely on our food banks to survive.

Paying your Zakat is simple. Just calculate how much you need to give, pay it here, then enjoy Ramadan knowing that your Zakat is feeding children and families who are living in poverty.

Make up for missed fasts

When you give your Fidya and Kaffarah through us, you’re helping to secure daily Iftar for impoverished families who have no other source of food.

To pay Kaffarah, give £240. And to pay Fidya, give £4 for every fast you missed, or £120 for the whole month.

Learn more about Fidya and Kaffarah or donate it here.

Who will your donation help?

When you sponsor a child, you’re investing in their future by gifting them an education.

Your donation will go towards paying for their meals, clothes, accommodation and educational resources so they can concentrate on school without the worry of living in poverty.

And when you sponsor a female student through our girls’ education programme, you’re giving a young woman easy access to higher education, so they have everything they need to become financially independent adults.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to give sadaqah jariyah during this special month when all your deeds are multiplied.

Sponsor a student today.

Feed poverty-stricken families

When you donate a Ramadan food pack, you’re providing Iftar for hungry families who visit our food banks to secure their next meal.

We feed widows, single mothers, young children, the elderly and the sick, so they receive the nutrition they need to survive.

Ramadan in Pakistan is particularly difficult for people who are malnourished but who still choose to fast out of love for their Lord.

Help make their worship safer and easier by securing their Iftar.

Donate a Ramadan Food Pack.

Feed 10 People for £20 or feed 20 people for £40.

Nekbakhat, aged 50, had to flee her home with her husband and five children in the middle of the night when the flood came in August 2010. 
"Before the flood I was happy here. The water came in the middle of the night. It was difficult to escape in the dark. We were holding onto each other and crying."
"It is good now that we have clean water here again. Since we came back we had to go to the next village to get water, so now it is a little easier. The hygiene training has also been good, and it means that now there is no disease in the village".
"The problem now is that we cannot grow rice or wheat to eat, not even fodder for the animals".
Nekbakhat's village is one of hundreds that are being helped to recover from the disaster by the NGO Mercy Corps, with the support of funding from the British government's Department for International Development.Mercy Corps have installed clean water pumps and basic sanitation in the village, to help meet people's basic needs as they return home after the flood waters subside.
