"Before, we used to ask neighbouring villages for Qurbani meat. This year, they told us not to come to their homes because they are worried about the spread of Coronavirus."
This past year the COVID19 pandemic has brought everything to a standstill, impacting the neediest and most vulnerable communities around the world the hardest. Jobs have been lost, food supply chains disrupted and healthcare systems completely overwhelmed, making Qurbani distributions this year extra special.
This Eid your Qurbanis fed more than 25,000 people
Thanks to your generosity, your Qurbani donations reached more than 25,000 beneficiaries in some of the poorest regions of Pakistan, Niger, and Mali as well as war-ravaged Yemen.
Most of our recipients were orphans, widows, and the elderly, like this family, who had not eaten meat at all this year. As you can see from their smiles, they were incredibly grateful to be able to enjoy a warm and nutritious meal on Eid.
As you can see, there is wisdom and immense reward in following the teachings of our beloved Prophet (saw) and we pray that Allah (swt) accepts all of our sacrifices and efforts Inshallah!
