As Salaamu Alaykum
We are focusing our Qurbani programme purely in West Africa this year. Gift of the Givers project managers have gone deep into the desert, seen the poverty and the tough circumstances under which people live. In virtually every home you will not find any food stores. Most people survive day to day. Meat, indeed food, is a luxury. The provision of meat parcels will elicit responses of gratitude, prayer and inner happiness. The poverty, demeanour, humility, sincerity and piety of the populations have motivated our decision to focus totally in this region this year. Shares are R650 each and will be distributed in Mauritania, Mali, Senegal, Niger and Burkina Faso. Many religious schools are totally dependent on the meat that they receive to sustain their pupils for the entire year as most of them come from absolutely poverty stricken areas.
