Still Looking for Projects to Support with Your Zakat at Fitr This Ramadan?
This Ramadan, Muslim Link had the opportunity to interview two Zakat al Fitr Eligible Canadian organizations:
In 2017, Islamic Relief Canada joined the Humanitarian Coalition (HC), applied and officially joined the HC, which is made up of 11 other leading Canadian NGOs. Currently, Islamic Relief Canada is supporting UNICEF's campaign to address the COVID 19 crisis in India, providing medical supplies to Palestinians during the current emergency in the West Bank, and continuing to support communities in Yemen.

In 2013, Justice For All Canada began by launching a special Burma Task Force campaign focused on lobbying the Canadian government to undertake diplomatic and humanitarian action concerning the genocide of Rohingya Muslims. Building on the success of the Burma Task Force, Justice for All Canada has launched four new human rights advocacy campaigns over the last three years: Save Uighur, Free Kashmir, Save India and Sri Lanka Task Force. The Canadian Council of Imams has declared Justice for All Canada as Zakat eligible. To learn more about Justice for All Canada's work and how you can support them this Ramadan, click here.
