The National Zakat Foundation partnered with Alfirdaus College this Ramadan in a drive for Toy collection, donation and its distribution before Eid.
Toys always bring joy to children. With so many poor and needy families, NZF has been carrying out an Eid Toy drive every year.
Alfirdaus College this year requested toy donations from their students and families during Ramadan and then with the help of NZF distributed them to children in their homes as well as to sick children in various hospitals in Sydney.
NZF teams visited Westmead, Liverpool and Bankstown hospitals just before Eid and gave out toys to sick children who remained admitted in these hospitals.
The toys were not only given to Muslim children, but to children of all faiths and backgrounds thereby giving them all a chance to share the joys of Eid.
The initiative helped children to understand the Islamic value of giving specially in the fasting month of Ramadan and sharing of the blessing of Eid amongst children of all faiths and cultural background.
The National Zakat Foundation is a ground-breaking initiative which aims to utilise Zakat funds and voluntary donations collected in Australia for the benefit of local, deserving recipients.
NZF has developed key partnerships with other organisations to help deliver additional support services to all and the Muslim community in particular.
