Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam. By donating your zakat to AKUH, you ensure that this zakat is used to treat the most underprivileged patients, many of whom require complex and comprehensive treatment that is not offered at any other hospital in the city.
A transparent and meticulous process will be followed to distribute the zakat given to the general fund. The zakat will be distributed to adults and children who are suffering from a range of illnesses including cancer, hepatitis C, heart disease and brain tumour. This zakat may also be used to treat patients who have sustained injuries in accidents.
If you would like to donate to a particular cause or priority, you can donate your zakat to one or more of our special programmes.
