According to the United Nations, over 820 million people are experiencing food insecurity right now. This number is expected to rapidly increase in lieu of the COVID-19 pandemic, rising unemployment, financial and economic downfall, and political and civil unrest worldwide.
Embrace Relief’s various International Hunger Relief Campaigns are designed to combat the international hunger crisis and help as many people as possible around the globe - but this cannot be done without your help.
This year, Qurbani is held from July 19th to July 23rd. During this time, sheep, goats, and cattle are humanely and hygienically sacrificed, meaning it adheres to common dietary restrictions. During the celebration of Qurbani, many people donate meat packages to those who do not have access or financial resources to purchase meat, which makes Qurbani the one time per year these families can get it.
In honor of Qurbani, you can send a meat package that has been humanely and hygienically sacrificed to a hungry family in Africa, Yemen, Greece, and the United States. Listed below are the prices of Qurbani share for each country:
(Prices for each Qurbani package differs according to the costs of the country where it was sacrificed and are at minimum market price.)
Meat and animal products are advised for our daily diet in order to grow properly because of the protein, minerals, and vitamins they contain. Furthermore, it is very common for beneficiaries to cut, dry, and salt the meat and grind it into a powder that can be mixed into meals and drinks. One Qurbani donation is distributed among 8 families and can supply a family with meat-based protein for up to one year.
You can send a family a Qurbani today and allow them to celebrate this important occasion along with millions of others across the world. You will be their shining light through their dark times and bring them happiness and hope today!
