Oxfam exists to tackle the injustice of poverty, helping people to help themselves. We respond when natural disasters or conflicts strike, saving lives and helping those in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. And we support individuals and communities to build lasting change and give hope for the future. We work with the poorest and most vulnerable people and in some of the most fragile countries in the world, often in sub-Saharan Africa, The Middle East and South Asia.
Reach people in need
100% of Zakat payments will be spent in country delivering vital development projects or emergency responses.
Dedicated bank account
Zakat funds will be held in a dedicated interest free bank account prior to them being sent to the designated countries.
UK administrative costs will not be claimed on any Zakat payment and Oxfam will not profit from interest on Zakat payments.
Oxfam's Zakat policy and implementation will be regularly reviewed by our panel of Islamic advisors.
