People In Pakistan:
From the start of its independence from India in 1947, Pakistan has faced a raft of problems associated with poverty which still exist today. Terrorism within the country has added to Pakistan’s problems, perpetuating a negative image to the outside world. A severe water shortage, unemployment and an energy crisis are just a few of the added challenges facing people in Pakistan. Health care is mostly poor and the country has had to absorb huge numbers of refugees from Afghanistan. A donation to Ummah Relief International will help us deliver fresh Qurbani meat to the poor during Eid-al-Adha.
Refugees and Natural Disasters in Pakistan:
More than 180 million people live in Pakistan and, of those, around one third are believed to be living in poverty. Add to that almost two million refugees and it becomes clear that Pakistan is a country struggling to cope with the scale of hardships being faced by its people. Pakistan has also been hard-hit by natural disasters, including earthquakes, droughts and floods.
What Pakistan Needs:
Although poverty rates have fallen in recent years, natural disasters and other factors leave those living in Pakistan at greater risk of falling into poverty. Food, safe drinking water, education programs and medical treatment are all needed to help relieve existing suffering in Pakistan. This life-saving work is possible – with your help. Meat distribution in Pakistan is especially required.
URI Qurbani Donation In Pakistan:
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.
Qurbani donations for Muslims can be pledged online here http://www.ummahrelief.org/how-to-donate/
