Do my contributions to Anera qualify for zakat?
Anera helps the most vulnerable populations in Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan.
Our staff come from the communities they serve. They have the relationships and local knowledge necessary to ensure that contributions made to Anera help those in the greatest need.
While the majority of our work centers around meeting the needs of refugee populations in Lebanon, the West Bank, Gaza, and Jordan, Anera also works with local community members to elevate those who have fallen below the poverty line.
Zakat contributions made to Anera will be restricted to food assistance and medical aid programs. This means that Anera will use your zakat to acquire and distribute food packages, medical supplies, hygiene kits and other essentials for families who would otherwise go without.
