Udhiya Donation for Palestine:
Segregation policies implemented by Israel have isolated Palestinians. According to the United Nations, Palestinians now face ‘the worst poverty rate of all time’. It is estimated that 80 per cent of children living in east Jerusalem alone are living in poverty. Living standards in Palestine dropped considerably following a five-year economic crisis, between 1999 and 2005, and poverty levels have continued to rise ever since. A donation to Ummah Relief International will help us deliver fresh Qurbani meat to the poor during Eid-al-Adha.
Two Million Palestinians Live Below Poverty Line:
A World Bank report cited as far back as in 2003 that the number of poor in Palestine had tripled in just three years. Sixty per cent of those residing in the West Bank and Gaza were identified as living ‘under the poverty line’. Despite a call to action, poverty rates have not declined. The staggering increase in recorded poverty has been blamed on a number of factors, including a high unemployment rate, economic decline, conflict and the isolation of the Palestinian people.
Worst Economic Conditions for Decades:
More than half a million Palestinians are surviving on food handouts. The need for humanitarian assistance is huge. Without aid, they would not survive. Last year, the Chamber of Commerce of Gaza reported that nearly two million Palestinians were facing the month of Ramadan under the worst economic conditions for decades. The poverty rate was estimated to have reached 39 per cent, with 21 per cent of Palestinians living in ‘extreme poverty’.
URI Qurbani Donation For Palestine:
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.
