Bringing Happiness of Qurbani to Indonesian Migrant Workers in Taiwan

16 July 2018

ACTNews, NEW TAIPEI CITY – We, Muslims in Indonesia, often forget to be grateful about our privileges: guaranteed rights to worship, easy access to Islamic facilities, as well as the ability to celebrate the two Eids with festivity. Not every Indonesian can enjoy these privileges, for example our fellow Indonesians who work overseas, known also as Indonesian Migrant Workers.

There is often a misconception among Indonesians that migrant workers are mostly housemaids and babysitters. In fact, many Indonesian migrant workers are highly-skilled experts.

Living in a foreign country with no kith nor kin becomes some kind of a test for Indonesian Migrant Workers, including Indonesian Migrant Workers in Taiwan, especially low-skilled labors such as factory labors, housemaids, and babysitters. With only low income compared to the high life expense, they don’t often celebrate Islamic holidays in festivity.

One of them is Dewi Susanti (36), a factory labor in Ruifang District, an industrial area in New Taipei City, North Taiwan. Susanti does receive decent wage in accordance with Taiwanese government’s regulations, including National Health Insurance. Still, she can’t celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha as festive as in Indonesia. She often misses the Eid celebration in Indonesia.

Fortunately, in Eid-ul-Adha 2017, Susanti was able to celebrate Eid-ul-Adha merrily as other Indonesian Migrant Workers and she gathered in a mosque to celebrate Eid. After performing Eid prayer, there was a surprise of a package of qurbani meat. It was Global Qurban who reached Taiwan to bring happiness to Indonesian Migrant Workers who were far away from home.

A wide smile appeared on Susanti’s face as the qurbani meat package was given for her and her husband.

“Even though I am not in Indonesia, I am still able to reach qurbani meat, it is an immense blessing. Thank you, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT),” said Susanti happily.

Not only Dewi Susanti, the qurbani meat packages were also given to the Muslim converts who had just converted to Islam for a few years after marrying Indonesian Migrant Workers in Taiwan.

“Here in Ruifang, interracial marriage between local Taiwanese and Indonesian women is very common. Many of these native Taiwanese converted to Islam. After marriage, many of these Indonesian Migrant Workers revoke their citizenship and become Taiwanese nationals,” said Yusuf Priyambodo, Global Qurban partner in Taiwan.

The gift of the qurbani meat packages was meant to strengthen their faith and making them stronger Muslims. Hopefully, in the future, they will no longer only become qurbani recipients, but they will also offer qurbani sacrifice.

This intention has been made by Yunah, a former Migrant Worker who is now married to a native Taiwanese. When her husband and she received the qurbani meat package, she said,” Hopefully, in the next years, there will be more people who sacrifice their qurbani through ACT. Hopefully I will also be able to offer a qurbani myself.”

In 2017, three goats were sacrificed to be distributed to 30 recipients in Ruifang and Dayuan District. They celebrate the Greatness and Mercy of Allah, as well as a sense of brotherhood and solidarity as Indonesians. This year, Insha Allah, Global Qurban will revisit Taiwan to reach more beneficiaries. []
