Helping families in Mali celebrate Eid
International Waqf Fund reached out to as many people as possible, providing vulnerable individuals with Qurbani meat to enable them to feel valued and included during Eid festivities. We bought joy to 4,774 people during Eid by providing them with high-quality halal meat.
The 41-year-old mother of five, Sokona is the sole breadwinner in her home, selling fresh okra in the local market. Sokona does not have a fixed income and her family’s diet changes based on what she can afford. Meat is too expensive for Sokona, so she rarely gets a chance to offer her family any meat.
We, therefore, provided her with a Qurbani meat pack – to help her and her family celebrate Eid-al-Adha.
“My meat pack helps me a lot. I’ve had a happy feast with my children and after the feast, I’ll spend around three days eating the meat I’ve received. It really brings great joy to my family.
Thanks to Islamic Relief for supporting our community. They have dried our tears and brought hope into our life. We are now living in dignity and peace. I’d like to send my sincere thanks and greetings to the donors for their generosity and solidarity. I encourage Islamic Relief to keep helping people in need and expand their support in other sectors.”
