ACTNews, JAKARTA – For eight years, Global Qurban has been facilitating those who want to offer their qurbani and distribute it to the rightful recipients. The qurbani packages are sent to disaster-afflicted, poor, and economically underprivileged areas across Indonesia. Moreover, the victims of natural disasters and humanitarian crises were also visited such as the people of Palestine, Somalia, Syria, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Global Qurban has been able to become an intermediary for Muslims to reach out to the rightful beneficiaries easily, cheaply and transparently. In doing this, Global Qurban does not work alone. Global Qurban collaborates with many elements: banking institutions, e-commerce, social communities, mosque institutions, etc. The wide scope of collaboration makes it easy for those who want to offer the qurbani sacrifice because they don’t have to buy the animals by themselves.
One of the facilities that Global Qurban provides to make it easy to perform the qurbani is by purchasing the qurbani animals through retail outlets. A number of retail companies with thousands of outlets throughout Indonesia have collaborated with Global Qurban.
According to Rini Maryani, President of Global Qurban, in 2017, Global Qurban was able to collaborate with 2,000 retail outlets. Global Qurban actively served those who wanted to offer the sacrifice by providing a facility for them to purchase qurbani animals in supermarkets and minimarkets.
One of Global Qurban’s partners is PT Transretail Indonesia (Carrefour), with many outlets throughout Indonesia. This year, Global Qurban will collaborate again with Carrefour to help the customers of Carrefour and Transmart toperform Qurbani sacrifice.
Collaboration between Global Qurban and Carrefour has been going on for six years. It is one of Global Qurban’s effort to make it facilitate people to perform qurbani sacrifice easily, cheaply, and transparently.
For the past six years, thousands of customers have purchased their Qurbani through Global Qurban. All of this is due to the easy ways provided by Carrefour and Transmart outlets to purchase qurbani animals.
According to Donald Sitorus (38), PT Transretail Indonesia (Carrefour)’s General Manager for Fresh Products, the collaboration between Global Qurban and Carrefour this year will be made easier, as the customers will be able to purchase their qurbani through e-commerce, supported by Happy Fresh.
“Happy Fresh is one of Asia’s well-known e-commerce companies. Since PT Transretail Indonesia (Carrefour) collaborated with Happy Fresh, the number of the customers has been significantly increasing,” he said.
Sitorus added that, for 2018, the target is around 7.5 billion Rupiah, around 2,500 goats.
“The chance to reach the target is quite good. We have reviewed some of our retails, and Alhamdulilllah the number of the outlets increased from 99 in 2017 to 119 in this year. Furthermore, many of our outlets have changed their name from Carrefour to Transmart. Such change can also attract more customers,” he explained.
Sitorus stated that his company’s satisfaction for the collaboration with Global Qurban is based on the easiness and increase of the qurbani achievement during the six year-collaboration. “Our company is satisfied with this collaboration. Therefore, to date, we continue the collaboration and keep educating our customers,” Sitorus added.
Another collaboration will be initiated and launched in July 2018 in Carrefour Lebak Bulus, South Jakarta. Well-known public figures and Islamic preachers are going to attend The launching ceremony.
According to Muhammad Basair of Global Qurban’s Program Partnership, this collaboration will be held from July 20th to August 22nd. During this time, people can purchase their qurbani animals though Carrefour and Transmart outlets throughout Indonesia.
“Global Qurban team will provide booths and consultants in each Carrefour and Transmart outlet throughout Indonesia. The purchase of the qurbani animals can be done through these booths,” said Basair.
Let us prepare our best Qurbani this year through the Global Qurban booths in each of Carrefour and Transmart outlet. Insha Allah, offering qurbani through Global Qurban will bring benefits to many.
