The people of Afghanistan Are Suffering...

Nearly 55% of the Afghan population faces extreme levels of hunger. 3 million Afghan people are internally displaced. Since January 2021, the last surge of violence has caused 600,000 people to flee their homes. 
  • Over 40 years of conflict
  • ​A protracted and severe drought and other natural disasters
  • ​Chronic poverty and food insecurity
Just imagine having to whatever you THINK is of value just to provide food for your family. 
Just imagine that your child who is supposed to be in kindergarten or Grade 1 now has to work more than 12 hours a day just to survive. Millions of Afghan families need us. The children of Afghanistan need us and time is running out.

$3.4 Billion (77%) of the $4.4 billion required to deliver humanitarian assistance in 2022 for Afghanistan remains UNFUNDED.

We need to respond now.

Is my donation Zakat eligible?

Yes! Approximately 70% of our recipients are Zakat Eligible.

What is the average cost of cancer treatment?

How is my Zakat money spent? Who is it spent on?

The Zakat donations that we receive from our donors are distributed among Zakat eligible patients for whichever treatment they are receiving from Indus Health Network facilities.

What are your guidelines for distributing Zakat Donations?

The Indus Hospital provides quality care without any discrimination, free of cost through the support of your Zakat and Donations.

With the help of reputable Sharia Scholars, The Indus Hospital (TIH) has developed a criterion to ascertain if Zakat is applicable to a certain individual. Whenever a patient visits the Indus Hospital, he/she goes through the assessment with TIH’s welfare officer to determine if the patient is eligible for Zakat or not.

Once the recipient of Zakat is identified, their MR number is marked to signify that the patient’s treatment should be supported from Zakat account. The patient is requested to sign a declaration granting the Indus Hospital permission to collect Zakat on their behalf and to use that Zakat to sponsor the treatment of his/her and/or other patients or hospital requirements. Once the patient is discharged, hospital generates an internal bill and sends it to the Zakat Committee for settlement.
