What is the National Zakat Foundation?

According to the National Zakat Foundation, thousands of Muslim women suffer domestic abuse yet cannot get help from existing shelters or safe houses. Why would this be true?
Their publicity campaign, linked to a Ramadan appeal, claims that a Muslim woman called Sara has suffered domestic violence and maltreatment from her husband yet got no help from the social services, the courts or the benefits system. They claim she was left "penniless and homeless"...of course if true this is terrible, but why would it happen? Does Sara live in the UK or elsewhere? The appeal message is careful to avoid saying.
SARA WAS ABUSED & AFRAID...
Your sister Sara was afraid for her life after enduring horrific abuse from her husband. When she decided enough was enough she filed for divorce but was left penniless and homeless - until she found NZF. Find out how Sara's life has changed.

Here is the video they are circulating:-

As far as I was aware, any women facing such problems in the UK would automatically get accommodation in a secure, secret shelter and if there was any violence the divorce would take only one year, not five. Support from the benefits system would be automatic.
The fact that Sharia law permits a husband to beat his wife and forbids her to leave him or disobey him is tactfully excluded from their Ramadan appeal.
It claims that they need donations to provide homes for homeless people and provision for orphans.
Where exactly are these cases and how do we know that the money donated is really going to philanthropic and life-saving causes?
