2018 Qurbani Campaign Summary

In August 2018, Humanity First carried out its campaign for Qurbani donations, the beneficiaries of which were then facilitated across Africa, Asia, Central America and Europe.

This year, by the Grace and Mercy of Allah, Qurbanis were done in 37 countries (17 of them for the first time), with new countries shown in Bold below:

• Central America: Belize

• Asia Pacific: Bangladesh, Indonesia, The Philippines

• West Africa: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Congo Republic, Congo DR, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Republic, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Sao Tome, Senegal, Sierra Leone, The Gambia, Togo

• East Africa: Kenya, Madagascar, Somalia, Tanzania, Uganda

• Europe: Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Turkey

The majority of the animals were purchased in rural areas where the prices were lower, and also the funds were sent as early as possible to ensure the best price and avoid shortages nearer Eid. Typically packs of meat were distributed to families in designated villages with the blessing of village elders.

The response from the beneficiaries has been humbling, with many saying they would not have been able to celebrate Eid without our participation.

We pray for all of the donors who contributed to this scheme in 2018 that they will be fully rewarded for their sacrifices,

Ameen.
