Traditional Zakat Cash Sponsorships
Change Lives with a Cash Zakat Charity Donation
You know that when you give your Zakat charity donation with Penny Appeal that 100% of every penny you give goes directly to those who the Qur’an mentions are eligible to receive it. Penny Appeal has many Zakat applicable appeals that you can choose to donate towards, including Feed Our World, Thirst Relief, Emergency Response, Open Your Eyes, Adopt a Gran and more. But did you know that you could follow in the Prophets (ﷺ) footsteps this year and give your Zakat directly to the poor?
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and his followers were incredibly generous when it came to giving sadaqah, and often gave directly to this in need. You can now do the same with our innovative cash Zakat charity donations. Zakat cash sponsorships provide every penny of your Zakat to someone who is in need and eligible to receive it!
This Ramadan, we will be distributing Zakat cash sponsorships to refugees, internally displaced people and communities that are rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of disaster. The poor and needy throughout Mozambique, Uganda, Jordan, Palestine, Syria, Somaliland and Yemen will be benefiting from your generosity this year if you choose to give your Zakat charity donation with Penny Appeal in the form of a cash.
Your Zakat Cash Sponsorships in Action
Giving cash is a sustainable Sunnah that empowers vulnerable people to lift themselves out of poverty and rebuild their lives after disaster. By giving a cash Zakat donation, you’re giving people in need the opportunity to make the best choices for their family and their specific situations. Read on to hear about how Zakat cash sponsorships have already changed lives in Mozambique!
22 year old Sonia is a single mother of two beautiful children, one is just an infant and the other is in second class. Without your support, Sonia wouldn’t have the funds to expand her vegetable business and bring in extra money to care for her children.
“I really want to thank United Purpose and Penny Appeal for your help. I never dreamed of having 35,000 meticais (£350 GBP) in my life.” Sonia says, “If I didn't have financial management training with United Purpose, I wouldn't even be able to manage this money. I will invest in my business of selling vegetables in local market to provide for my family. Thank you very much!”
Isaura is 46 years old, and is a single mother of 6 children. She lives in Lichinga with her family and often struggles to look after everyone. She sells vegetables in the city to make ends meet but with 4 of her children in school and two little ones to look after, money is tight. But Cash Zakat donations helped support her family last year, alhamdulillah!
Isaura said, “I sell tomatoes and onions for my family's livelihood. With this value of 35 000, 00 Meticais I will start to buy corn to resell. Also this amount will help me with the expenses of home and school fees for my children.
When I was included in the list of beneficiaries, I did not believe that I would receive this amount. When I received it, I thanked God as this action can only be the work of God. For me the most important is that my children will be able to study with this help. Thank you very much.”
Elfrida is a 27-year-old woman living with a disability that affects her mobility. She is an orphan and a single mother of a 9-year-old boy. Elfrida lives with her son and her grandmother and two other family members in Lichinga. She is a member of an association of persons with disabilities. All of her family relies the income she makes as a hairdresser, but it is often not enough. Thanks to your support, she received business skills training in May 2020 to support her in managing her finances and now has received £350 from Penny Appeal to support her family.
“I never thought that one day I could receive this kind of help from you and Penny Appeal. I am very grateful; this will reduce my suffering and I will continue working and growing.”
Ines is a 34-year-old mother of 3, and lives in a household with 7 family members in Lichinga; all of whom she is financially responsible for. Her home is very small, and it is a struggle to fit her whole family in comfortably. With the Zakat funds from Penny Appeal, Ines is planning to invest her money into building a small outhouse next to her home to give them the extra space they need to live comfortably.
“I am so grateful to Penny Appeal, I will invest money in material for building my small outhouse (room annex to the main house) in a plot I got some time ago, but never managed to gather enough money for building. I am very happy with this help that will make tremendous difference in my life.” Ines told us.
Your cash Zakat sponsorships can do amazing things for impoverished families in Mozambique, Uganda, Jordan, Palestine, Syria, Somaliland and Yemen this year– just like they have for these women and their families in Mozambique. When you pay your Zakat this year, consider doing so as a cash sponsorship because this form of giving is truly a blessed one!
