Currently, Zaman is ramping up our efforts through local and international partnerships to provide relief to those impacted by the tragedies unfolding in Afghanistan, Haiti, and Lebanon. With so many suffering through life-altering events, it is going to take an extraordinary response to meet the increased need.
Please consider contributing in any way you are able to support:
Zaman’s mission began with refugee resettlement more than 20 years ago, and we remain committed to this work today. Zaman is in contact with local resettlement agencies and is poised to provide basic needs resources, case management and vocational training for Afghan refugees arriving to Michigan.
Zaman is currently accepting monetary donations as well as new or like-new clothing and other basic supplies.
Zaman is launching a 2021 Lift Lebanon campaign in an effort to help procure life-saving medications and medical supplies as a recent explosion has compounded the ongoing economic and health crises there. Through our partnership with International Medical Corps, donations through Zaman will go directly to support a health care system severely strained by prolonged crisis.
As in previous response efforts, International Medical Corps is able to secure matching dollars of at least 30:1 from their larger partner organizations like the European Union, World Bank, and USAID. To learn more about International Medical Corps directly, visit their webpage.
Collaborating with renowned global first-responder International Medical Corps, Zaman is committed to help provide a mobile medical unit to those in need following the devastating Aug. 14 earthquake in Haiti. According to UNICEF, a total of about 1.2 million people, including 540,000 children, have been affected by the quake, with relief efforts further hampered by tropical storms that have swept the area, creating flooding and disrupting access to water, shelter and other basic services.
