Zakat Fund

icddr,b provides free of cost treatment for about 200,000 patients annually at icddr,b’s two hospitals, located in Mohakhali, Dhaka and Matlab, Chandpur.

Every year, our hospitals cost us 5 million US dollars to operate. That is why we are asking for your support so we can continue to provide the medical care and expertise that has saved millions of lives since our foundation in the 1960s.

You are welcome to make a “Zakat” contribution to this fund, which will greatly help provide some support to the patients with financial constraints at the hospital.

Following all Zakat rules, your “Zakat” contribution will be used for:

  • Purchase of blood for transfusion;
  • Non-stock medications;
  • Modified lifesaving diet such as Pregestimil for persistent diarrhoea;
  • Hire attendants for very sick patients with no care givers;
  • Transportation cost to go home after being discharges;
  • Transport bodies of deceased patients;
  • Admission fees for referral cases to other hospitals.
