Last Year, Qurbani from Indonesia Distributed to Aleppo

12 August 2017

ACTNews, ALEPPO - Still remember Aleppo? It has been almost a year and Aleppo, the most crowded city in Syria, once was remembered well by the international communities. At that time, Aleppo became the most discussed city in social media. But then, all dicussions were not something good about Aleppo.

People remembered Aleppo as city of bloody conflict, the battlefield of ego. Million land attacks and airstrikes once demolished this city.

A year ago, September 2016 to be precise, was the darkest moment the city faced. Bombs and airstrikes ruthlessly ambushed the city every night. Both parties, opposition and government, were just the same. Their ego exploded that no one could stop.

Million civilians turned into victims. Most of them fled Aleppo to seek for asylum. But, there were many of them who were trapped in their home, in the dying Aleppo.

But, there were times when ceasefire was declared and applied across Aleppo. It was when the world condemned the attacks which targeted civilians, when the world was angry as the number of casualties kept arising. At those times, truce was implemented, although it was only awhile.

A year ago, the truce was indeed agreed. There was simple reason: majority of Muslims living in Aleppo were celebrating Eid Al-Adha. For seven days, starting from Eid day (12/9/2016) to the next seven days, no attacks are allowed. For bloody Aleppo, it seemed to be temporary “heaven”.  

Qurbani from Indonesia were distributed to Aleppo

As the ceasefire was on, Global Qurban quickly went to the city to distribute qurbani from Indonesian people. This qurbani must be delivered to Syrian people in Aleppo no matter how. Because, there were great number of beneficiaries of Global Qurban in Aleppo. Thousand families were visited, thousand sacks of qurbani meat from Indonesia were delivered.  

Distributing qurbani meat across Aleppo was not a simple task. Intensive communication with local partners has been done since early days.

“Allah helped us distributing the meat. You see, the ceasefire period was a perfect timing for qurbani distribution during Eid,” said ACT’s partner living in the border of Aleppo and Kilis, Turkey.

In Aleppo, Global Qurban first headed to Al-Sahara Village, a small village in the western Aleppo. Last year, the total population in this village made up 5,000 people. All of them were Muslims. Just like the condition in other areas in Aleppo, people there had no option but celebrating Eid with devastating state.

Hadeel Tarab, Global Qurban’s partner in Aleppo said, as the conflict seemed unabated, education, trade and daily activities were severely affected. Even up to present, when the conflict in Aleppo drops, the city is yet to revive, including Al-Sahara.

Tarab added that Al-Sahara today is still trying to survive and rise amidst the devastated Aleppo. “They hope anyone can stand next to them, support them to rise from the downfall as the conflict ends,” he said.

The next village visited by Global Qurban was Kafar Amma Village located not far from Al-Sahara. Last year, only 3,000 people remained in the village while other portions of the groups had fled to the neighboring countries to seek asylum.

A year ago, from dawn to evening, for four days of tashreeq, the distribution of qurbani meat for Aleppo citizens was completed. Global Qurban chose remote areas as target distribution, assuming the economy condition in areas such as Al-Sahara and Kaffar Amma was worst affected compared to the central area in Aleppo.

Idul Adha 2017, Global Qurban is going to visit Aleppo again

At the beginning of 2017, Syria Government under Bashar al-Assad regime stated that Aleppo was fully controlled by the regime. Its military forces assured that there would be no attacks in Aleppo. Unfortunately, the city remains the dead city. Reconstruction is yet to continue. Economy, education and jobs are hardly to be revived and found today in Aleppo.

How about Eid Al-Adha 2017? It is likely the same with last year’s Eid. Qurbani in Aleppo is like the long-awaiting feast.

Embracing the upcoming Eid Al-Adha, Insha Allah Global Qurban will depart to Aleppo, reaching the remote villages in the western part. After the tension of conflict in Aleppo plunges, most IDPs live in these areas. Therefore, qurbani trusted by Indonesians will once more be distributed to these regions. []
