Zakat Donation Lebanon:
One of the best ways you can support people in need in Lebanon is by donating your Zakat payment to Ummah Relief International. At least twenty-eight per cent of Lebanon’s population is classed as ‘poor’, with eight per cent deemed to be living in extreme poverty. At least 350,000 of them are Syrian refugees. Poverty rates in Beirut are below six per cent, but are as high as 53 per cent in the North of the country. Official studies have identified 29 per cent of Bekaa’s population as living below the poverty line. Poverty is also prevalent in the South, as well as in Nabatieh and Mouth Lebanon.
Impact of Syrian Crisis:
It is estimated that the number of people living below the poverty line in Lebanon has risen by a shocking 66 per cent since 2011. The World Bank believes 170,000 Lebanese fell into the poverty trap between 2011 and 2014. The impact of the Syrian crisis on Lebanon has been enormous. One million Syrian refugees make up a quarter of Lebanon’s population. Around 350,000 of those refugees are unable to meet their basic daily needs. They face homelessness, poor health and starvation. They need urgent humanitarian assistance.
From Conflict to Poverty:
Humanitarian aid was needed in Lebanon before the Syrian crisis, as a result of conflict. It is now needed more than ever. Most refugees live in tents, work sites or unfurnished houses. They need food, improved water supplies and better sanitation.
Your Zakat Donation Will Save 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 Lebanon. 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.
