At Zaimah, we work to bring hope and joy back to a world immersed in hardships. We strive to take humanity out of the inequity and injustice which compounds to inflict the widespread suffering and poverty prevalent in the world today.
We work to save and improve the lives of millions throughout the world’s poorest countries. Zaimah is motivated by a desire to create a world in which charity and compassion bring justice, self-sufficiency and human development by alleviating poverty, increasing access to education and providing basic amenities for the needy.
The essence of our faith calls us to realise our highest humanitarian potential. No one person can do everything, but we all can do a little something. The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was the most benevolent of humankind. He taught us that we all have a responsibility towards the poor, the oppressed, the weak and the infirm. Imagine what world we could build if we all made a little change? To pray a little more, to care a bit more and to give a bit more too!
