A Ray of New Hope: Qurban 2021 in Indonesia (Sheep)
Sula Islands Regency is located in North Maluku Province in Indonesia. Sula Islands Regency is divided into 78 villages, with a population of around 107,807 people. Most of the people of the Sula Islands Regency work as fishermen. And even then, they usually have a non-fixed income, depending on the weather and the catch of fish. The income they get is erratic at an average of MYR 260 (USD 64) per month. Due to the lack of employment opportunities, the unemployment rate in this region has reached 48%.
This Eid al-Adha, we aim to put a smile on the face of our poor and needy brothers and sisters in Indonesia. The meat is distributed to after careful research and proper verification a list is formed of those who are the most needy families. The preparation of this list is done with a lot of care so that meat reaches those who are really deserving. The meat is distributed to the poor and needy families across Sula Islands Regency. The beneficiaries are approximately 450 families or 1,071 people
The team on the ground will be fulfilling all Islamic principles and requirements as per proper Islamic teachings. By donating to this qurban campaign, our donors have the opportunity to help feed their Muslim brothers and sisters directly on the ground in Indonesia. It’s not just about the quantity of the donation. The main aim is the quality of our donations and being a part of circulating good for the sake of Allah.
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: “The best of deeds is making the believer happy, such as covering his ‘awrah, satisfying his hunger or meeting his need.” [Tabarani]
For these people finding sustenance is a challenge in itself and with their non-existent to meager earnings a good meal (like meat) is a luxury most have rarely experienced. The frequency of meat consumption in the villages of the Sula Islands Regency is still very minimal due to the high price of meat. In Wailia Village, the price of chicken meat can reach USD 10/kg. The rest of the people consume meat only when there is a major event in the village.
Your sacrifice done for these people will bring them huge relief and great joy on this auspicious occasion of Eid. Donations to this campaign will help provide meat packages to these poor and needy Muslims so that they also get the chance to forget their sorrows and make the most out of Eid.
