Every year, Islamic Relief Waqf distributes Qurbani meat to families who are extremely impoverished and marginalized. Many of these families cannot even afford to have three meals a day, let alone a meal including meat. For every donor who has a Qurbani Waqf share, a sacrifice will be made on their behalf every year. Each Eid, the number of people receiving Qurbani meat will increase.

In 2015, we provided 205 families living in vulnerable communities with Qurbani meat.

Bangladesh – Faiza’s story

As her husband is too sick to work, Faiza, 54, is the breadwinner for her family. She does household chores for other families, but the money she earns barely covers the cost of food, let alone other expenses like schooling and medicine.

There’s no electricity and they can only get water from the local water pump. The cost of meat for Faiza is equal to two days’ worth of food so buying meat isn’t even an option for her anymore.

Malawi – Nitty’s story

Nitty and her family are used to not having enough food, but last year the situation was even worse. The high amount of rain meant the harvest was poor and the family had even less food than usual.

Nitty worries about her own health as well as the health of her children. Without meat, they lack protein. “People who eat meat look different to us; they look healthier,” she said. The Qurbani pack that we gave the family provided them with the first piece of meat they’d eaten all year.

Niger – Moumey’s story

Since Moumey’s husband died, her family haven’t been able to afford meat. She described to us how people usually celebrate Eid.

“It’s a day of mercy. We get up early in the morning to sweep our houses and cook food before going to the Eid prayer. When we come back we eat the food and share it with our neighbours and give some to those who are in need.”

However, for her family, Eid is like any other day.

“Unfortunately we can’t do this generous act. We just cook food for our family and stay at home.”

“We are very happy to receive this meat. We pray to God and make dua for those who donated and worked hard to provide us with this.”

The difference between IWF and other organisations is that IWF will invest your donations and bring a sustainable return year on year and serve people indefinitely.
