Narrated Marthad bin ‘Abdullah Yazni: One of the companions of Allah`s Messenger (peace be upon him) told him that he had heard him say:

“The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.”

[Saheeh Al-Tirmidhi (1925)]

JFIC Overview

The Jamaica Foundation for Islamic Charity (JFIC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing solutions for poverty and hunger in Jamaica by assisting and empowering the poor and disenfranchised with their basic needs. We have defined a food basket that is geared at providing periodic sustenance for families in 2 weeks tranches.  Our application process includes a rigorous vetting process which seeks to categorize beneficiaries in one of two groups:

  • Group 1 – Persons unable to work due to age/disability
  • Group 2 – Able-bodied persons unable to find gainful employment. For this group, we will provide temporary assistance and mentoring geared at weaning them in the shortest possible time.

The following diagram illustrates the entire process:
