Global Support Trust was established nearly 10 years ago, with the main focus being to ensure correct distribution of Zakat according to the Qur'an and Sunnah. Since then every year distribution of Zakat has been personally monitored by trustees.
This year, due to COVID 19 affecting international travel, trustees will not be able to travel out and distribute funds personally. So we have taken the difficult decision to not accept Zakat donations this year as we do not feel comfortable either sending out large amounts abroad or holding on to your donation. Please forgive us for any inconvenience this may cause you.
Please try and support us with Sadaqah donations. May Allaah Azawajal accept all your good deeds, and protect you and your family. Ameen
GST Zakat Fund
At Global Support Trust we take the responsibility of Zakat distrubition very seriously. This was one of the core reasons why the charity was set up. All beneficiaries are meticulously assessed, and distribution is strictly according to the Qur’an & Sunnah. We follow the principle of transfer of ownership of Zakat funds.
We use Zakat funds to support individuals internationally as well as here in the UK.
How We Distribute Zakat
Internationally, with Zakat, we have ongoing projects supporting widows and orphans in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. This includes activities such as:
- Emergency Aid to conflict zones such as Syria and Burma.
- Orphan/widows Home Building
- Food distribution in Ramadan
- Direct funds to needy individuals
- Support for educational costs for orphans
Unfortunately nowadays, we are coming across many individuals and families here in the UK who are in desperate need of help. We operate a strict vetting procedure to ensure beneficiaries are eligible to receive zakat.
The criteria is very strict and all distribution is personally supervised by our trustees. We only support those in most need and who are, or are on the verge of being destitute, i.e. those who lack the very basic necessities such as food, clothing and suitable shelter. Many individuals we come across are not entitled to benefits.
Please donate and help us to fulfil our obligation to our brothers and sisters around the world and in the UK who are in need.
