West Africa (Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger) is the focus for Gift of the Givers Qurbani distribution. Covid-19 has wreaked havoc on food security affecting 40 million people in the region. Qurbani is an opportunity to support indigent cattle farmers by purchasing at a price that affords them an opportunity to make a modest gain economically. A double benefit accrues by cleaning, packaging and distributing that very same meat to desperate families in deeply rural areas.


This year we extending our Qurbani project to include Malawi, faced by similar circumstances as West Africa.


 West Africa R875 per share.
 Malawi R800 per share.
