Thank you for your interest in donating your Zakat to support underprivileged cancer patients.
To calculate your Zakat, please use the below optional form:
The Zakat Fund was established by the King Hussein Cancer Foundation as a means for Muslims to give their Zakat in support of underprivileged Muslim cancer patients. The fund is based on the official Fatwa received from the Jordanian Fatwa Council that qualifies the Foundation to be a recipient of Zakat.
Zakat payments are deposited in a separate safe-guarded bank account, and are dispersed within one year in order to treat less fortunate Muslim cancer patients, who are not included in health insurance and/or are unable to pay for the costs of treatment, regardless of age or gender.
The Zakat Fund plays a major role in saving Muslim cancer patients. Between 2008 and end of 2017, the Foundation was able to cover the treatment of 865 less fortunate cancer patients, the financial support totaled at 18,154,391 Jordanian Dinars (25,605,629 USD).
The Zakat fund is considered an inseparable part of the Goodwill Fund. As to ensure that the King Hussein Cancer Foundation adheres to the requirements of the approved Zakat Fatwa, a separate fund was established especially for the Zakat with a safe-guarded bank account in the Jordan Islamic Bank, facilitating the ability for people to deposit their Zakat. The payments are dispersed in order to treat less fortunate Muslim cancer patients being treated at the King Hussein Cancer Center.
The King Hussein Cancer Foundation received an official Fatwa (Islamic legal pronouncement) from the Jordanian Fatwa Council (Fatwa number 2/2006, dated March 2006) qualifying the King Hussein Cancer Foundation as a recipient of Zakat.
