Assalamu Alaykum wa rahmatullah,
It is with a sense of sadness and regret that Bayt Al-Zakat informs you that the 2020 HSC High Achiever awards have been postponed until further notice in light of developments surrounding the coronavirus. Given health concerns regarding the transmission of the virus between people, the Federal government has decided that indoor gatherings of more than 100 people should be banned. Respecting the health concerns and the need to protect the community from the risk of transmission, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the postponement of this cherished event.
A decision has also been made to close our office in Wangee Road Lakemba until further notice. Donations can be still made via our website at www.baytalzakat.org and any queries can be directed to our email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you understand the need for such extreme measures and we make duaa for all of our community members, indeed for humanity, for protection from such a pandemic.
The journey of Bayt Al-Zakat in Australia started in 1989 with the launch of the “Orphan Sponsorship” program to sponsor orphans in North Lebanon. Few years later other projects were established aimed to support the poor and needy in North Lebanon: the “Qurban-Adahi” (Sacrificial animals), the "Food Parcels" and other “Ramadhan” projects.
