Other charities are almost a person's will but Zakat is necessary for the people's own assets and properties. Quran has designated eight categories of reason which are zakatable. freeing captives [or slaves] is one of those (see Quran-9:60).

In 2006, I had established an organization, which is working to rescue and rehabilitate trafficked girls and helping communities to lift themselves out of poverty through education, training and supportive livelihoods.
I have started a fund raising to ask for your contribution. You can help us in liberating women in slavery and those who are desperately in need of support as
