I am truly greatful to have such an extraordinary organization within my local community. I lost my infant son in July of 2014. I was completely overwhelmed as to how to have a funeral for an infant or even how to bury an infant. This was a tragedy I could never have even imagined. losing my precious son Ali was the most difficult trial I have ever faced. Then I heard about the organization Zaman International and how they had formed the Plots for Tots program within the Islamic Memorial Gardens Cemetery. It is a particular area designated for the burial of infants and young children. The very first time I visited the plots for Tots Cemetery I was immediately moved spiritually and knew that was exactly where I wanted my son to be burried. Amongst this overwhelming loss, the idea of my son Ali being buried with other precious babies brought so much peace to my aching heart. I am so greatful Zaman International designated such a special place for these little angels. Thank you again for bring light into one of my darkest days. May God bless you for all the comfort your effort has brought to all of these grieving parents.

I was a volunteer/intern for Zaman. It is an amazing and wonderful non-profit that serves the metro Detroit area. They are extremely transparent in everything that they Dom they are a very diverse organization that does things no other group does. they bury infants whose parents cannot afford to do so, the eyes teac women English, help them get there GED, and find jobs. These are only a few of the things that they do. They are a truly an inspiring organization. I wish them all the success!

Zaman does many wonderful things from feeding the hungry to providing clothes and school supplies for the less fortunate. One particularly important mission is Plots for Tots which raises money for families that have lost a newborn and cannot afford burial. In a time of unspeakable sorrow, Zaman helps families bury their little ones even though the family doesn't have the funds. Surely this is one of the most touching acts of charity for a need that often goes unnoticed.

I have been volunteering for this great organization for almost three years now. Zaman International promotes social justice and cares for abandoned women and children with compassion and dignity. What I like most about Zaman, is that all ages are welcome to help out. There are many opportunities for children, teens, adults, and seniors to be a part of the solution. Zaman provides my family with the chance to help others throughout the year. We pack food boxes, and we deliver coats, school backpacks and gifts to the kids. Their annual WALK for Humanity is excellent - a wonderful family event. Thanks Zaman for doing such awesome work!

I have worked with non-profit organizations for many years now, and I have never been so impressed with the sincerity, compassion, and dedication of an organization as I am with Zaman International. Anyone who gets involved with Zaman, whether as a client, donor, or volunteer, will see exactly what I mean. The staff are some of the kindest and most passionate people I have met, and the organization is truly committed to working closely with the client and the community. If you have some time or money to spare to supporting this organization, I highly recommend it!
