WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

I am a single mom. I was a bit nervous to receive help and also felt that my debt was too large for them to assist me, wasn’t expecting any help actually but when they got in touch I wasn’t made to feel needy but felt taken care of. Canada Zakat team reacted fast to my situation and also checked in on me to see if there was any immediate needs. I am now out of the debts and relaxed and able to focus on my children.

Thanks ALLAH that helped me run into an organization like CanadaZakat and helped answer my prayers. I went to the office and received the cheque and give you sincere thanks and words can not describe what you have done for us, You are my brothers in supporting us while my son goes through his cancer treatment. Pray Allah(swt) give shefa for my son Mohamed and all muslim’s who are sick and also I don’t know how to thank you all my Bothers and Sisters .
