Support Afghanistan This Ramadan

Afghanistan is facing a major humanitarian and displacement crisis. The needs of families who have had to flee are acute. You can give Zakat and help strong, resilient people make it through extraordinarily difficult challenges. Give your Zakat this Ramadan to change the lives of refugee families' who desperately need your support.

Every dollar you donate will help those most in need -- whether it's the families of the elderly working to overcome debt, widowed mothers who can't provide food for their children or families who do not have a roof over their heads.

It takes seconds to help families afford shelter, food, water and medicine. This Ramadan #EveryGiftCounts.

100% of funds are distributed to displaced persons.

  • $55 can help 3 people afford basic essentials for a month
  • $146 can help 8 people afford basic essentials for a month
  • $219 can help 12 people afford basic essentials for a month


Calculate your Zakat

We’ve made the process easier with our Zakat Calculator. Enter your assets and liabilities in our calculator to figure out your contribution. Note: because nisab values can vary every year, we have based this calculator on the values for 2022.

As the third pillar of Islam, Zakat is mandatory for adult Muslims who fall over the threshold of Nisab. Use our Zakat calculator to quickly determine how much you should give.



UNHCR’s Refugee Zakat Fund is Sharia compliant, backed by 11 fatwas from leading Muslim scholars and institutions, including the Canadian Council of Imams.

60% of today’s refugees and IDPs are from OIC countries and fall under 4 out of 8 Zakat categories: Poor (Al Foqara’), Needy (Al Masakeen), Debtors (Al Gharimin), Wayfarers (Abna’ Al Sabeel)
