Zakat Eligibility

Who is assisted

For inpatient support, the individual should:

  • occupy a general ward bed
  • contribute towards treatment cost
  • request assistance prior treatment/admission

The Patients’ Behbud Society for AKUH provides zakat assistance for the following services:

Inpatient Services

  • Medicine
  • Surgery
  • Paediatrics
  • Obstetrics/Gynecology
  • Psychiatry

Outpatient Services

  • Laboratory
  • Radiology
  • Doctor's consultation
  • Physiological measurements

Financial Need Assessment Process:

Patient arrives at AKUH and is seen by a doctor. Treatment is suggested and patient is informed of the cost.
Patient expresses inability to pay to the financial counsellor and is therefore assessed for eligibility to receive assistance from welfare and zakat funds.
There is a detailed interview to check the eligibility of the patient to receive funding. Documents like salary slip, utility bills, any papers pretaining to financial liabilities are requested and reviewed.
If the patient is deemed eligible, financial assistance is provided and the patient undergoes treatment of AKUH.
The patient recovers at AKUH after treatment and returns home. Post discharge, the patient visits AKUH for check-up if required.
* In life threatening cases, the patient is first provided treatment and subsequently goes through this process.

Donor Testimonial

"I actually go through all the documents I receive and research the methods by which zakat or other funds are handled by various organisations. I think it is important to know and be sure that your funds are treated correctly.”
