Qurbani Udhiya Donations for Kashmir
A staggering ten per cent of the population in Kashmir is estimated to be living in poverty. Economic growth in the territory has been thwarted by a long campaign of militant violence, first reported 17 years ago in 1989. It is thought that more than 200,000 children have been left orphans in Kashmir, many through poverty. Hunger is a major issue and why Ummah Relief International carries out meat distribution in Kashmir. A donation to Ummah Relief International will help us deliver fresh Qurbani meat to the poor during Eid-al-Adha.
Poor Unable to Care for Children
Imagine having to give your children away because you can’t afford to feed or clothe them. It is a heart-breaking choice that poverty-stricken families in Kashmir have to make every day. Lack of food is cited as the biggest reason – even though thousands of tonnes of food goes to waste in Kashmir on a daily basis; thrown away by those who have not tasted poverty. Those in rural areas, where work is hard to come by and the terrain makes it difficult to grow crops, are particularly susceptible to falling into the poverty trap. Their efforts to improve their lives are often made difficult by lack of infrastructure and other factors outside of their control, including ongoing unrest in Kashmir.
Meat Distribution in Kashmir
The distribution of meat and food in Kashmir is saving lives and keeping families together. It is Ummah Relief International’s humanitarian response to a major crisis. Qurbani donations for Kashmir can make a real difference to our program.
URI Qurbani Donations in Kashmir
During the month of Dhul Hijjah, Muslims around the world slaughter an animal to honor Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son for the sake of God. This sacrifice is known as Qurbani. It is an important and integral part of Islam, and one every Muslim aims to support. According to tradition, at least one third of the meat from the slaughtered animal must go to poor or vulnerable people. One third of the meat can be kept for the family of the person who has slaughtered the animal and the final third is given to their neighbors.
The Festival of Sacrifice, Eid-al-Adha, is celebrated during Dhul Hijah. It begins on the tenth day and ends on the thirteenth. A donation to Ummah Relief International’s Qurbani Udhiya Program will ensure that fresh Qurbani meat can be distributed to the poor who would otherwise be excluded from this important tradition.
Ummah Relief International’s Qurbani Distribution Program makes a real difference to the lives of Muslims around the world. Qurbani donations for orphans and refugees can feed the hungry at an important time of the year for their faith.
