Our Qurbani in the Home of Coffee, Ethiopia

19 July 2018

ACTNews, BURAYU, Ethiopia – About Ethiopia, the young people, especially those living in big cities, will probably feel familiar. The reason is one: it is the home of coffee.  

In recent years, the coffee drinking culture is rapidly growing in big cities. Indonesia can take pride about its status as the producer of world’s best coffee beans. However, coffee was first found in Ethiopia in the 15th century.

Ethiopia is located close to Somalia. Its geographical features are also similar, since both countries are located in the horn of Africa. Without any coastal lines, Ethiopia is a landlocked country with the densest population.     

Although it has no seas, the climate in Somalia is divided into two extremes: cold areas in the west and hot, dry area in the east, similar to Somalia. In this vast country with 102 million residents, Global Qurban arrived last year to bring the benefits of qurbani from the people of Indonesia.


 Qurbani in slum area near Addis Ababa

The name of the location was Teche Village in Burayu District. It is close to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, located 2,355 meters above the sea level. Global Qurban partners in Ethiopia informed us that Burayu is a slum area located only 12 kilometers away from the center of Addis Ababa.

“Although it is located to the capital city, Burayu, including Teche Village inside, is a poor, underdeveloped area. The public facilities in the village are not in good condition compared to Addis Ababa. The roads are broken, medical facilities, school and clean water are scarce,” said Abdurouf Abdurahman Hussen, Global Qurban partner in Ethiopia.

Hussen added that the life of the Teche villagers has not improved for a long time. The people of Teche is slowly expelled by the industrial development, not to mention the conflict between the Gurage and Oromo ethnic groups.

“They lost their farmlands. They have to be factory laborers with low income. The opportunity to get a job is getting more difficult. Ethiopia is a densely-populated country,” added Hussen.


A year ago, the qurbani packages from Indonesia for Ethiopia were prioritized for Muslims residing in Burayu District. Hussen explained that, according to World Bank, 78% of the total Ethiopian population earn only per day.

“Islam is the second largest religion in Ethiopia, comprising around 35-40% of the total population. They are mostly from Somali, Afar, Argobba, Harari, Berta, Alaba, Silt’e ethnicity, including also Gurege and Oromo whom Global Qurban met,” said Hussen.

Due to their poverty, meat is a luxury for the Gurege and Oromo Muslims. Hussen said that the Gurege and Oromo Muslims can only enjoy meat during feasts held by the rich as well as death anniversary.

“Meat is a luxury for most Ethiopian Muslims in Burayu district. Eid-ul-Adha celebration gave the Ethiopian Muslims in Burayu district a chance for them to enjoy meat," he said. 

Fatuma Ali Hussen, a widow ox six children in Burayu expressed her thankfulness to Global Qurban pertner in Ethiopia. She explained that her husband has passed away. After that, her life changed as she has to work as a factory laborer with small earning. Every Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha, her feeling aches.

Every time Eid approaches, I am in grief. I have no money to buy new clothes not meat to celebrate the days. However, it is different this year as there are qurbani packages sent by Indonesian Muslims to our village. Thank you so much for you all,” said Fatuma Ali in Teche village in September 2017. []
