Najah Bazzy, CEO and Founder of Zaman International, has been named a 2019 Top 10 CNN Hero, highlighting the transformative hope that Zaman brings to hundreds of thousands of women and children living in extreme poverty.
On December 8, 2019, Najah accepted her Top 10 CNN Hero Award on behalf of all Zamanitarians during the live broadcast of 13th Annual CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute. In her remarks, Najah shared, "We are at the peak of grace when we provide for essential human needs. When Zaman unlocks the shackles of poverty, mothers are able to realize their full human potential and create a dignified life for their children."
The broadcast also marked the start of Subaru's "Share the Love" campaign, which pledged to match the first $50,000 donated to each Hero through their CNN Heroes GoFundMe campaigns. In just 16 hours, Zaman reached this cap, resulting in more than $100,000 raised for women and children living in extreme poverty. Additional matching opportunities are anticipated, but until then, donors can still contribute at bit.ly/ZamanHeroMatch.
