Definition of Masakeen/Fuqara

Assalamu alaykum
I was wondering whether a case like Aariz - where a child is in such need, would that qualify for zakah or would it be a general sadaqah?

I support the opinion that Zakatul Mal (not Fitr) can be given in such cases.

And Allah knows best

Jazakumullahu Khayra
My first question was regarding the pre-treatment fundraising i.e. for the transplant.
Now what about funds raised to pay off treatments that have already happened, like the chemotherapy, since that is a debt would that qualify for zakah?

Same thing would apply insha'allah: ie- Zakatul-Mal
