HOPE’s Qurbani Activity 2018

The aim of sacrifice, like all other fundamentals of Islam, is to imbibe piety and self righteousness. It also promotes the spirit of sacrifice for a right cause. HOPE- an NGO in Pakistan is striving hard to reach out to the poor and less fortunate this Eid.

There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Eid al-Adha than the sacrificing of animals. Sacrifice, as practised by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) is an essential religious ritual of the Muslims – replicating and commemorating the sacrifice performed by Prophet Ibraham in its truest spirit and essence. God put Prophet Ibrahim to a most difficult trial, the details of which are described in the Quran.

Qurbani meat is divided into three parts; one for the family, the other for the neighbor and the third portion for the poor. And so Muslims fulfill their obligation and distribute some meat of goats, cows, sheep and camels to the underprivileged.

HOPE- a Health NGO in Pakistan, was actively involved in the distribution of sacrificed animals among the deserving families this Eid-ul-Azha. HOPE carried out its annual Qurbani on all three days of Eid and sacrificed a total of 18 Cows which was distributed benefitting a total of 3800 families whilst 17 Goats were sacrificed and meat was distributed to 600 families.

HOPE under the supervision of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- a child specialist in Karachi, distributed meat in every nook and corner of Pakistan so that no one if left hungry and unhappy this Eid. Areas included: Rehri Goat, Bhens Colony, Ghaggar, Gadap, Mujahid Colony, Bhittaiabad, Sachal, Bilal Colony, Zia Colony, Muzaffargarh, Sujawal, Badin, Thatta and Gurumandir, Karachi.

HOPE USA chapter, Human Concern International (HCI) and many individual donors contributed for the share in cows and for goats.

With the spirit of Charity, HOPE was able to put a smile to those underserved population who otherwise starve themselves to sleep every night. HOPE has always been a forerunner in carrying out those activities which benefit humanity in any way possible.

The increasing need for environmental conservation has become prominent in the past few years. Several organizations have started initiatives to promote environmental welfare and for that reason HOPE- an NGO in Pakistan has initiated the tree plantation activity.

Planting a tree is a lifelong investment. How well this investment grows depends on the type of tree selected and the planting location, the care provided during planting, and the follow-up care after planting. Getting your new tree off to a healthy start will help the tree mature to its full size and ensures it will provide environmental, economic, and social benefits throughout its lifetime.

Tree Plantation is poised to effect a positive change in the world's forests growing fast growing trees on a global scale.

The Tree plantation program has already begun in Cities like Badin and Thatta and is now at Phase 1. Phase 1 depicts three types of plants: lemon, guava and Java Plum.

The sites have been selected and 200 plants have been decided upon for plantation. These trees will have a tremendous impact on climate change.

Some of the very obvious benefits that tree plantation has is: Trees provide oxygen, they cleanse the air, prevent water pollution, conserve energy, most importantly they provide for wood which in turn increases the timber market production and boosts the business.

Under the Leadership of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- a child specialist in Karachi, HOPE- a health NGO in Pakistan is dedicated to improving the condition in Pakistan, by way of all necessary means which also includes tree plantation.

Once phase 1 is completed, HOPE will move on to searching for more sites where trees can be planted, while those which had already been planted will be well looked after. HOPE wishes to combat climate change through such activities.
