First Qurbani in Kemuning after Years of Absence

30 August 2018

ACTNews, BLORA – During Eid-ul-Adha a week ago, Blora Regency also had a story of the celebration. Two days after Eid, Friday (8/24), Global Qurban – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) team, assisted by a number of volunteers were ready to deliver qurbani packages to a number of locations in Blora. All of the target areas are located in remote regions. Some of them are even located in outer regions bordering Grobogan and Rembang regency.

A big truck was used to conquer the roads on the edge of Blora Regency, Central Java. Teak forest was a common sight along the road. Blora is known as a national producer of excellent teak wood.

Along our journey, ash and soot, traces of burning grass, was seen on the sides of the road. The heat coming from the smoking grass heated up the already scorching temperature.

Our truck reached a small road that can only be travelled by one four-wheeled vehicle. We also had to go through thick teak forests and steep, rocky road to get to the location.

Shortly afterwards, we got to a hamlet affected by the dry season. The name was Kemuning Hamlet, Genjahan Village, Jiken Sub-District. For three months, rain hasn’t fallen on the area. Consequently, farms, plantations and water-wells are dried up.

Kemuning villagers make a living from cultivating their rainfed farms. They cultivate the land based on the rain cycle. As told by Sutikno, a local farmer, this year there has been only one harvest season in Kemuning Hamlet.

“The farmers here can only harvest their crop once during rainy season. Then they cultivate corn. After the corn is harvested, the land can no longer be cultivated until the next rainy season,” Sutikno explained.

To spend their days during dry season, Kemuning villagers rely on the rice that they have stored for food. Most of the farmers here cultivate their land for consumption and not commercial purpose.

It’s not surprising that the economy in Kemuning has been showing no signs of growth. It was seen from the houses of the villagers that are mostly made of wood, and some of them even have no floor. The average education level of the villagers is elementary or middle school.

The hamlet had not witnessed the joy of qurbani during the celebration of Eid-ul-Adha. For years, there had been no qurbani sacrifice nor distribution in the area.

It was such an overwhelming joy when they found out that there would be a qurbani distribution in their hamlet during Eid-ul-Adha celebration. Many of the locals had prepared the seasonings for the meat even before we arrived there.

As the sun was sinking, the qurbani packages were distributed. The enthusiastic villagers had been waiting even right after Friday Prayer. Words of joy and gratitude were expressed as they praised Allah for the provision that He bestowed them this Eid.

“I, Hadi Sukirno, on behalf of Kemuning Villagers, thank Global Qurban – ACT very much for the qurbani meat. There has been no qurbani in this hamlet for years. Alhamdulillah, thank you very much, may this be a blessing for us,” said Sukirno.

The qurbani distribution in Kemuning Hamlet ended at the time of maghrib. Before leaving, we savored qurbani dishes made by one of the locals. We enjoyed the pieces of fresh meat cooked in coconut milk and spice.

After that, our team departed for other distribution locations. The route was more challenging and difficult than Kemuning. []
