Who We Help
For many, life is a constant struggle and all too often bad decisions or circumstances beyond an individual’s control can perpetuate that struggle in the most devastating of ways. When these tragic events occur, there can be no greater service to humanity than to reach out with a helping hand. The essence of the Faraj Fund is to provide assistance to those who need it most and who cannot help themselves.
Our focus is on individuals who have been incarcerated in correctional and penal facilities for financial issues. The inmates have outstanding debt which they are unable to resolve from prison and, in many cases, families who had previously relied heavily on their financial support or income to survive.
We receive applications via the government prisons and correctional facilities for people of all nationalities. All applications are evaluated to ensure they meet the criteria for assistance. The cases are individually assessed by our committee with supporting evidence is presented and the requirement for aid is identified. A course of action is then recommended to the Faraj Fund Team.
We consider the following to be eligible for assistance:
- Those struggling to repay loans and civil debts
- Those struggling to pay for ticket once deported
- Those struggling to support their family outside
- Those struggling to pay Diyyah (blood money)
- Those struggling with penalties or court fees
