Testimonials

Zaman is such an amazing organization that does so much for the community. I enjoy volunteering with them because I feel like I'm actually making a difference in people's lives. I was able to sort and deliver food and clothing to women and children who needed a helping hand. Volunteering with Zaman is so rewarding, I am very grateful to have been able to do my part.
Mariam Alrayes, Volunteer
What drew me to Zaman was the idea of working for a respectable organization and I felt like I could donate my time to an organization that really puts forth the effort to help out the needy within the community.
