Bringing Qurbani to the Islamic Republic of Mauritania

13 July 2018

ACTNews, TRARZA, Mauritania – The city name Nouakchott is probably not quite familiar to us. Perhaps, it is difficult even to just pronounce its name. Despite being the capital of one of the largest Muslim countries in Africa, we never heard about it on the news.

Nouakchott is the largest, most densely populated city in the Islamic Republic of Mauritania. Almost 100% of its population are Muslims. Where is Mauritania located on the map?

If we open the digital map on our gadgets, we will see that the great Sahara Desert, the world’s largest desert, occupies the northern section of Africa. It includes several North African countries: Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Western Sahara and Mauritania.

Mauritania located at the western section of the desert. It is probably not as famous as other Saharan countries like Egypt, Algeria and Morocco. Like other Saharan countries, 100% of the population are Muslims. In fact, it is an Islamic Republic with crescent and star printed on its national flag.

Mauritania is a home to around 4.3 million residents. However, most of them live in the capital city located on a more fertile location in southwestern Mauritania.

Currently, the economy, politics and social condition of the country is growing without any threat of conflicts. Still, 20% of the total Mauritanians live in poverty, earning approximately US.25 a day, around IDR 15,000.


Global Qurban brought qurbani meat for Mauritanian Muslims

Bond by the Islamic brotherhood, since 2017, Global Qurban has reached the country at westernmost part of the Sahara. Global Qurban partner in Mauritania informed us that more than a quarter of the total Mauritanian population live beneath the poverty line.

“Not to mention the dry, barren land of the Sahara that makes it difficult for the vegetation to grow in Mauritania. Drought and poverty are the two most difficult problems in the country. Thankfully, Alhamdulillah, Mauritania is not a conflict-ridden country,” said Rahadiansyah of Global Humanity Response (GHR) – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT).

Rahadiansyah explained that, last year Global Qurban – ACT brought qurbani meat from Indonesia to Taguilalet Village in Trarza District.


“100% of the total population in Tatza District are Sunni Muslims struggling against poverty and drought that has been going on for years. It makes them difficult to cultivate the land,” Rahadiansyah added.

Dozens of sheep from Global Qurban were slaughtered in Mauritania and the meat was distributed to 600 recipients from 200 families in Taguilalet Village.

“Taguilalet is a remote village located 250 kilometers away from Nouakchott. There’s no asphalt road to get to this village. Around 8,000 families live here without steady income. Most of them work as livestock raisers with small amount of animals. Despite working as livestock raisers, they seldom enjoy the qurbani meat,” wrote Zainab Khaled Zobaidi, a Global Qurban partner in her report on Mauritania last year.

Another saddening fact in Mauritania is that most of the Taguilalet residents live in tents; they have no sedentary residence. “They have to feel the harsh desert climate inside the tents. During the day, the temperature was hot and dry, while it plummets at night, making it extremely cold,” Zobaidi added.

To continue serving Africa, Rahadiansyah added that Global Qurban is committed to deliver qurbani for Mauritanian Muslims. “Insha Allah, the dry, barren land of Mauritania will be revisited to strengthen our brotherhood with the Mauritanian Muslims on the day of Eid-ul-Adha,” he concluded. []
