The availability of meat is something that we take for granted in developed countries. The abundance and ease of access make us accustomed to it with every meal. Unfortunately, this dietary staple is a luxury for many around the world. Over the past year we have continued to offer your Qurbani, whether recommended or religiously mandated, available to those who would otherwise go without.
Throughout the year we make it a practice to give the opportunity for our donors to have chickens, goats, sheep and cows slaughtered in developing countries and the meat distributed to all those in need. This year we expanded our efforts to include Qurbani’s in Yemen for children who were suffering from undernutrition. The Trust continues to provide meat in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Kenya, Tanzania and Pakistan.
While majority of the Qurbani’s take place during Eid al Adha, people sponsor for many reasons throughout the year, for Aqeeqah, Sadaqa, Nazar and other reasons. We continue to provide nutritious meat throughout the year. Each Qurbani, no matter when, makes a great difference in the lives of the less fortunate.
