HOPE’s Qurbani Activity - 2017

Eid-ul-Adha gives us a massage that nothing should be dearer to us than Allah and this why we choose the best animal for qurbani according to our own capacity to gain Allah’s pleasure. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: Whoever made a sacrifice with all sincerity, the act of sacrifice will protect him from hell-fire".

There is also a recognized right, for the needy and deprived over our wealth and sacrificed meat and remembering the less privileged ones during your happy moments and important occasions is a very kind and beautiful act in front of Allah.

Hence, HOPE – an NGO in Pakistan, never forget the poor and needy on any event and occasion; giving meat to the destitute as required while doing Qurbani spreads happiness and love. It enables them to enjoy the important occasion of Eid-ul-Adha as a time of celebration and festivities.

HOPE – a Health NGO in Pakistan, distributed qurbani meat in the far flung areas of Karachi; Gadap, Ghaggar, Rairhi Goth, Bhens Colony, Bilal Colony, Mujahid Colony, Sachal Goth and Bhattiyabad as well as in Thatta, Badin, Muzaffargarh and Muzaffarbad (AJK). Total 17 goats and 17 cows were sacrificed in all of the areas that are mentioned; 5 cows and 2 goats in Thatta, 9 cows and 13 goats in Karachi, 2 cows in Badin, 1 cow in Muzaffargarh, 2 goats in Muzaffarabad and the meat was distributed in the poor and deserving residents of these areas by team HOPE.

This entire Qurbani activity was carried out under the leadership of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla – a child specialist in Karachi and with the support of donors who believe in HOPE. Various individual donors contributed for the share in cows and for goats. Human Concern International (HCI) Canada also contributed for 3 whole cows for the Qurbani.
