Providing Meat for Uyghur Refugee Families in Turkey (Goat)
Turkey is currently home to many Uyghur refugees. Uyghur Muslims first started coming to Turkey in the 1990s, fleeing persecution in their home of Xinjiang, China (East Turkistan) since the Chinese government was committing human rights abuses on local Turkic populations such as Uyghurs and Kazakhs. International rights organizations and some Western countries including the U.S. say China has arbitrarily detained more than 1 million Uyghurs and other Turkic ethnic groups in internment camps in Xinjiang since early 2017.
They have been subject to compulsory sterilisation, physical and sexual abuse, repression of religion and the destruction of religious buildings, and an unending stream of state-sponsored propaganda.
More than 50,000 Uyghur refugees have sought refuge in Turkey since. As refugees, they now live in overcrowded households, struggling to meet their food needs, pay their bills or access education, employment and healthcare.
This Eid al-Adha, we have this special campaign that aims to put a smile on the face of our Uyghur brothers and sisters in Turkey. 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.
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. 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 our Uyghur brothers and sisters directly on the ground in Turkey. 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.
