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. The organization reached new heights in 2010 and assisted more than 66,771 individuals through more than 60,000 donations including food, clothing, and furniture provision since then.  We have been able to reach so many households through the generosity of our volunteers and community partners, get involved today to help us reach more.
