World's Largest Refugee Camp: Qurban 2021 in Bangladesh
As of March 2021, there were over 878,000 Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. This includes almost 600,000 in the Kutupalong mega-camp, the largest refugee camp in the world. The refugees described food shortages across many camps. With the explosion of the Covid-19 pandemic, the safety and protection risks refugees are exposed to inside the camps have reached a critical point. Without proper livelihood opportunities, they do not have the money to get proper rations or even afford one fish to feed the entire family.
This Eid al-Adha, we aim to put a smile on the face of our poor and needy Rohingya brothers and sisters in Bangladesh. 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 refugee families across the camps in Cox Bazaar.
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 Rohingya refugees directly on the ground in Bangladesh. 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.
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.
