Muslims all over the world celebrate Eid-ul-Azha in the month of Zil Hajj, commemorating the great sacrifice of Hazrat Ibrahim (pbuh). In this regard, some of the companions asked the Prophet (pbuh) regarding the significance of this sacrifice, the Prophet (pbuh) is reported to have replied: “It is the Sunnah of your father, Abraham (pbuh)”.
Therefore, HOPE aims to reach out to all those poor and needy who neither can afford to sacrifice an animal nor get to have meat throughout the year like the privileged ones. Eid-ul-Azha is less than a month away and we at HOPE are preparing hard to distribute Qurbani meat and donations to the underprivileged areas specially those which are affected by the flood across Pakistan. HOPE has an extensive network of hospitals and schools in rural Karachi, Thatta, Muzzaffargarh and AJK – areas in which extremely poor families reside, who do not even know where their next meal will come from.
HOPE strives to have a society where individuals are aware of the basic rights and have equal opportunities to not only access health and educational facilities but to have all the privileges and blessings of life. In this regard, contributions from people all over Pakistan and outside Pakistan make our actions possible and we aim to reach as much poor people as we can.
Payments for Qurbani are:
· Goat/sheep: 14,000/- (per person)
· Full cow for seven (7 persons): 52,500/-
· One person’s share in cow: 7,500/-
