Every year, Islamic Relief makes sure your qurbani reaches families that need it most. Once more this Eid, we’ll distribute qurbani meat to some of the world’s poorest families.

For those we reach, your qurbani means a joyful Eid– and relief from worry about finding enough to eat.

Husain received one of nearly 6,000 qurbani meat packs distributed in Afghanistan by Islamic Relief last Eid Al-Adha.

As a labourer with no stable income, he struggles to provide for his family.

We are living in a camp and don’t have proper access to safe drinking water, says Husain, 40. “We try our best to earn enough to run the house but there is no work and we rely on Allah.

“Meat is not cooked in our home for many months,” adds the father of three, who worries that his children don’t get “enough vitamins to sustain themselves and grow.”

Still, Eid is a special time of year for him – and, thanks to generous donors around the world, a reminder that his plight is not forgotten.

“Eid Al-Adha is the Eid of sacrifice and unity, it is a chance for people in a condition similar to us to get some qurbani meat from our Muslim brothers and sisters.

“When this Eid comes around, my children are always excited as they get a chance to eat some meat. When I got the fresh meat [from Islamic Relief] all of them were very happy to be able to eat meat for the next few days.

“I really appreciate the efforts of everyone involved, may Allah reward them for all their help.”

Husain cooks the qurbani meat ready for a delicious Eid meal.
