Providing Meat for Disaster Struck Areas in Indonesia (Goat)
Indonesia is a country with the largest Muslim population in the world where 10.1% of the population lived below the national poverty line in 2021. The Covid-19 pandemic has increased costs, and made access to resources, and distribution of aid more difficult.
Earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, mass flooding and landslides. Many countries are faced with one of these disasters at one time or another. Indonesia, however, faces all of them frequently. Adding to this, Indonesia is located within the Pacific ‘Ring of Fire’ where 76 out of the 147 volcanoes in Indonesia are active, making the country one of the most disaster-prone places in the world.
This Eid al-Adha, we have this special campaign that aims to put a smile on the face of our poor and needy brothers and sisters in Indonesia with a special focus on families living in disaster-hit areas. They should also get the chance to forget their sorrows and make the most out of Eid. Our charity partners will be arranging Udhiyah or Qurban of goats this Eid ul Adha without any extra middlemen in between. The team will be focusing on areas impacted by the Mount Semeru explosion, the Pasaman earthquake, and the Semarang coastal floods.
After the qurban, the meat is not distributed randomly to anyone who comes asking for it. After careful research and proper verification, a list is formed of those who are the neediest families. The preparation of this list is done with a lot of care so that meat reaches those who are really deserving. Rumah Zakat has first-hand access to the local community. The team on the ground will be fulfilling all Islamic principles and requirements as per proper Islamic teachings. Donations to this campaign will also help provide meat and feed poor families without having to do qurban of one full animal as well.
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, meagre 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.
