Four Years after Devastating Conflict, Global Qurban Revisited Gaza

14 September 2018

ACTNews, GAZA – For billions of Muslims across the globe, the advent of the month of Dhu’l-Hijjah means only one thing: the arrival of Eid-ul-Adha, which fell in August this year. It is a highly-anticipated celebration in which Muslims share the happiness of qurbani among each other. Unfortunately, in Gaza, August is also a month which Palestinians remember with bitterness for what happened four years ago.

Everything has not changed in Gaza. It is a place where millions struggle to survive amidst total blockade. It is a place where its residents have been relentlessly fighting for their freedom. In August 2018, the memories and deep trauma of 2014 Israel-Gaza conflict still linger.

It was in July 8 to August 26 2014 when Gaza was decimated by missiles and artillery shells launched by Israel. They hit settlement areas, schools, markets and other public facilities. The death toll reached the staggering amount of more than 2,300 people.

Even after the conflict ended, everything is not getting any better in Gaza. The blockade got even tighter. The underground tunnels used by the Gazans to get food supplies from outside the region are being destroyed. Four years after the war, Eid Al-Adha was still filled with somberness.

Bringing Qurbani packages from Indonesia throughout Gaza

The heartbreaking fact of unending blockade in Gaza is the reason why Gaza was one of the locations of the Global Qurban’s qurbani distribution, considering also the fact that this year’s Eid Al-Adha fell in August, the same month when the war was raging in Gaza four years ago.

This year, there were dozens of distribution locations visited by Global Qurban team for Gaza. From northern to southern Gaza, packages of qurbani meat from the people of Indonesia were distributed.

The distribution coverage inclided Khan Younis, North Gaza, Gaza City, Middle Area, Rafah, Jabalia Camp Jabalia City, Beit Lahia, Beit Hanoun, Albadawiya Village, Zawaida, nusaira, Maghazi, Deir Al-Balah and Buraij.

Global Qurban volunteers met Mohammed Al-Shaer, a father of nine from Khan Younis. He told them that one of her daughter suffered from a condition that paralyzed half of her body. One of the causes was deep trauma.

“Our economic condition is so weak that we can’t afford her medications. This year, Eid Al-Adha came while my economic condition still hasn’t improved. I am ashamed that I also can’t afford any meat for my children. The feeling of unable to do anything has pained me, especially for a father who has no other with but for his children to be happy,” said Al-Shaer.

Al-Shaer was among the beneficiaries of Global Qurban’s qurbani distribution. Al-Massri, one of the volunteers in Gaza, mentioned that pieces of fresh meat were given to Al-Shaer who cried and expressed his gratefulness and prayers for Indonesia.

“Allah has answered my prayers. Qurbani meat came all the way from Indonesia. Thank you Global Qurban who visited Gaza each year,” said Al-Shaer. []
