Summary of 2020 Ramadan Zakat Accomplishments

Dear HOPE Friends,

I wanted to thank you all personally for your generosity and support of HOPE USA this Ramadan! By the Grace of Allah SWT, we broke fundraising records this year, despite the Covid-19 pandemic. In total, our Food Rations, Door-to-Door Iftar Distribution, and Eid Clothes for Children campaigns have benefitted 30,000 needy people in Pakistan since the coronavirus pandemic started. This Ramadan HOPE USA was able to accomplish the following with Zakat donations:

-- 3,500 Food Ration Bags Distributed (each bag feeds a family of 6 for one month)

-- 6,500 Iftar boxes/Biryanis Distributed

-- 550 Children will receive new Eid Clothes during Eid ul Adha (postponed from Eid ul Fitr due to the lockdown)_

Our impact extended from rural and adjoining areas in Karachi to Katchi Abadi's to interior Sindh to Muzaffargarh to Azad Kashmir.

Please note that HOPE USA also uses Zakat year-round for the following noble causes:

-- Life-saving surgery for the poor at HOPE Hospitals

-- Medicines from HOPE Hospitals for the Poor

-- Monthly food rations for poor families

-- Doctor's visits for poor people at HOPE Hospitals and clinics

-- Education tuition and supplies for children in HOPE Schools

Many of you I know personally, and I wish to extend my sincere thank you to all of your for an incredible Ramadan. I honestly prayed for all of you this year. I pray that Allah SWT accepts all of our efforts and grant us the capacity to do more. Ameen! Most of the Ramadan pictures have been shared already, but I do have a few new ones from Kashmir:

-- 100 Kashmir families received cash to purchase food rations when access to Kashmir was blocked

-- 200 Kashmir families received Food Ration bags once access was restored Best regards,

Ambereen Siddiqui

Director - HOPE USA
