Challenge

Most of the beneficiaries face financial difficulties and are Zakat eligible. Candidates for Zakat donations need to fulfill two major criteria: proof of financial hardship and average to excellent academic progress. PAMA adopts a rigorous process to verify the authenticity of the financial hardship, this includes consultation with University officials, calling references and consulting with PAMA representatives in Palestine.

Solution

PAMA pays off all the administrative fees so your Zakat or donation will be delivered dollar for dollar. PAMA will then deposit your donation directly into the university accounts of the beneficiaries rather than handing cash money to students.

Long-Term Impact

You have secured the fund for more than 400 scholarships. These scholarships benefit medical students in Gaza and the West Bank. The impact of these scholarships on the students and their families is huge as described by the students themselves. Please review Student feedback to see the impact your donation will have on them and their families.
