ACTNews, IDLIB – In few hours, Dhul-Hijjah 10 is coming. Billions of Muslims around the world has been busy preparing for the Day of Eid-ul-Adha that falls on Tuesday (8/21) or Wednesday (8/22), depending on the moonsighting in each locality. For Global Qurban – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT), this year marks the seventh year of its service to help the community in performing their qurbani and distributing its blessings to our brothers and sisters throughout Indonesia and other countries around the globe.
One of the Global Qurban’s implementation areas is Syria. This country has been afflicted with civil war since 2011. The raging conflict has caused massive damages, casualties, and refugees, both the Internally Displaced People (IDP) and refugees who seek shelter in other countries.
Global Qurban serves to bring a glimmer of happiness for the IDP inside Syria, including those in Idlib province. On Tuesday (8/21), Global Qurban team was at an animal farm in the city of Salqin in Idlib Province, Syria. Andika Rahman Nasution of Global Qurban – ACT explained, more than seven hundred sheep are ready to be sacrificed.
“Insha Allah, this year, we are going to slaughter 766 sheep that we will distribute in 18 refugee locations in Northern Syria. The IDP came from several Syrian cities,” Nasution explained.
One of the distribution locations are Camp Aishah in Atme, a Syrian city bordering the province of Hatay, Turkey. It was named Camp Aishah because most of its inhabitants are widows.
“There are 156 widowed families here who live with their orphaned children. There are approximately 400 orphans here. They live and receive Islamic and Quranic education here. Insha Allah, this camp will be one of the distribution locations of Global Qurban’s sacrificial meat this year,” said Nasution during his visit to Camp Aishah, Monday (8/20).
On the day of Eid-ul-Adha and three days afterwards, Global Qurban – ACT will serve the qurbani performers for those who will distribute the meat and share qurbani happiness throughout Indonesia and 46 other countries around the world, including areas afflicted by humanitarian crises and natural disasters.
