Every year, thanks to your generous donations, we provide Qurbani across the globe to people in need.
SubhanAllah, last year we reached a staggering 3.3 million people, distributing over 578,000 meat packs in 29 places across the globe.
One of the many places where your Qurbani reached vulnerable people in need was Bangladesh.
Here, a staggering 49% of children under the age of five are malnourished.
With a fifth of the 163 million population living on less than £1.40 a day, meat is simply a luxury that many people cannot afford.
That’s why we supported 630 orphaned families with female-headed households struggling with the loss of their main breadwinner. Our programme worked to provide critical aid for families struggling with devastating poverty, elderly persons and individuals living with disabilities.
We distributed a staggering 1,380kg of meat to support 715 struggling families, all thanks to your generous donations. Alhamdulillah!
Sharing joy and happiness, one of the main objectives of our Qurbani programme was also to raise awareness on good nutritional habits.
Sadly, these families rarely eat meat due to the cost. A lack of protein however is damaging to our wellbeing. That’s why we not only distributed Qurbani but informed the communities we were helping.
One of the many people we helped was Rina.
Rina is 32 years old. Sadly, she became a widow when her son Antor was just three months old.
Living with her now 12-year-old son and mother, Rina is a contractual worker in a fish processing company. Her mother also makes handicrafts at home.
However, despite working the family is living in poverty.
