Bayt Al-Zahra: The House of Light and Hope Urgent Needs Program

The Bayt Al-Zahra Urgent  Needs Program was established in 1996 after Founder Najah Bazzy witnessed firsthand the great need within the community.  In response, Zaman International designed this program to provide food, clothing, medications and shelter to marginalized women and children, senior populations and the terminally ill.

As additional community needs arose, Bayt Al-Zahra expanded its services and became a humanitarian relief program for households in urgent and crisis situations. Currently, the program supports client families through quarterly case management; client-choice food, furniture, clothing and household goods assistance; seasonal drives; and integration support for refugee families.
