Qurbani Kitchen to Spread Joy Among Jakartans

30 July 2018

ACTNews, JAKARTA – This city never sleeps. For 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it is filled with bustling activities. Even when it is late at night, the lights in the city do not dim down.

Tall buildings and offices were erected in months as headquarters of many great companies as well as government institutions that govern the people’s affairs across Indonesia. Toll roads were constructed to solve the traffic problems in the region. Mass transport programs were initiated in an instant, effective way.

On the other side, beneath the tall skyscrapers and overpasses, semi-permanent houses were built in poor, densely populated settlement areas. They were usually built along the rivers and railroads. Their roofs are made of zinc sheets; their walls are wooden boards.

Based in the data by Jakarta’s Department of Social Welfare, in 2017 alone, there are 220 slum neighborhoods spread across the capital.

Even though Jakarta seems to rapidly develop, many lower-class Jakartans live in difficult condition in small houses and unsteady jobs.

No jobs mean nothing to eat for them. That is often the case on the days of Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha. For them, there’s nothing too special about these two celebrations. During Eid-ul-Adha, they do not often receive qurbani meat. 

Qurbani kitchen to bring happiness to Jakarta

It is an irony that there are many around us who didn’t receive the qurbani meat, considering that one of the aims of qurbani is to give the fresh meat to as many people as possible.   

One of the examples is what happens in Kelapa 2 Island in Kepulauan Seribu. The island inhabited by 125 families, around 458 inhabitants, was one of the areas where qurbani meat is still considered a luxury.

“Sometimes we get some qurbani meat from the neighboring islands when they donate the animals here. If they don’t, then there’ll be none,” said Andi, the chairman of RW Kelapa 2 Island when ACTNews met him in mid-July.

Similar statement was also said by Achmad Yani, a resident of Kelapa 2 Island. He told ACTNews that once there was only one goat to sacrifice on the whole Island. “It was rather difficult to distribute the meat. But many of them understand. If there is no meat left, they don’t ask about it anymore,” he said.

Alwi TIko, a public figure on Kelapa 2 Island, told us about the stories of Eid-ul-Adha on the island. “As far as I know, no one on this island has ever bought sacrificial animals for themselves. They never complained about the lack of qurbani meat even though it probably isn’t much. They are content with what they receive, Alhamdulillah,” he said.

Because of this bitter reality, Global Qurban is preparing an action on the day of Eid-ul-Adha 2018 to bring happiness to the people of Jakarta. Sukorini of Global Qurban’s Humanity Network Department stated that this program will be named Dapur Qurban (Qurbani Kitchen).

“From the qurbani kitchens throughout Jakarta, delicious dishes will be given to the neediest,” said Sukorini.

On the day of Eid-ul-Adha 2018, the Qurbani Kitchen program will commence simultaneously in all regions of Jakarta: West Jakarta, East Jakarta, South Jakarta, Central Jakarta, North Jakarta, and Kepulauan Seribu. The distribution will target 223 poor neighborhoods throughout Jakarta.

“The animal slaughter will be done on one location for each administrative city in The Special Capital Region of Jakarta. The qurbani kitchens will involve the locals, from the locals for the locals,” said Sukorini.

To fulfill the needs in the six administrative cities, Sukorini stated that each of the qurbani kitchen will provide thousands of portions of food in accordance with the population of each neighborhood.

“At least, each Qurbani Kitchen will provide 2,000-6,000 portions of qurbani meat dishes. There will be a ceremonial banquet at each of the qurbani kitchen,” she explained. []
