Zakat Donation India:
One of the best ways you can support people in need in India is by donating your Zakat payment to Ummah Relief International. The economic boom that has put India among the world’s top ten richest nations has not wiped out poverty. In New Delhi men queue for free food handouts and in rural areas only three out of every ten people have access to clean water. It is in rural areas that an estimated 70 per cent of India’s 1.2 billion population lives. It is believed that more than 1,600 people die each day in India from diarrhea alone.
Homeless and Hungry:
As foreign governments withdraw aid from India, the need for humanitarian assistance has never been greater. Food, clean water, sanitation and medicines are all urgently required. Anti-poverty programs implemented by the Indian authorities seemed to be taking effect in the 1970s and 1980s but, from the 1990s onwards, globalization saw the initiatives take a backward step. Negativity towards Muslims has made them among the most vulnerable.
Half of all Indians are deemed to be surviving without proper shelter, while 35 per cent of households do not have a nearby water source. Disease is rife and medical aid sparse.
Overlooked in Statistics:
Massive swathes of the population in India are not included in the official poverty count, including the Dalits, women and those from minority ethnic tribes. They have become known as ‘the forgotten poor’. They are marginalized in society and seemingly do not exist for the poverty figures.

Your Zakat Donation Will Change Lives:
A Zakat payment, made once a year under Islamic law, is used for charity and religious purposes. As a non profit charity dedicated to helping Muslims in need, Ummah Relief International is a great channel to show your support for humanitarian work in India. A small amount of what you have saved over the past year could go a long way to preserving human life and giving people stricken by poverty a chance to build a future.
