The Islamic Council of Victoria has been collecting Zakat for the past 2 years for local distribution. We are experiencing an ever growing need from local Muslims from all quarters who are facing economic hardship. In particular in the year to date (2013) there has been an incredible influx of refugees released into the community with very little financial capacity. The Muslim community via the ICV is attempting to assist as much as we can.
Please consider contributing part of your Zakat to local Muslims through the ICV Zakat Fund. Please enquire further at the ICV Office (03 9328 2067) or simply transfer funds to BSB: 063122 – Account Number: 10 701 107 – CBA.
