According to the United Nations, Kenya’s population is one of the most struggling populations in the world. With over 36 million people living there, water scarcity has been an issue for decades where natural water resources fail to provide an equitable delivery of water to the various regions of the country.
One of the most blessed days in the Islamic calendar celebrated by Muslims across the world is the occasion of Eid al-Hajj. In 2013, this celebration took place in October. Each year, in keeping with the tradition of the annual Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) ritual of Qurbani, The World Federation facilitates the slaughtering of goats and cows (qurbani), where the meat is then distributed among the needy and poor.
This year, 556 goat and 2 cow qurbanis were arranged in Kenya, Sri Lanka and Tanzania for Eid al Hajj by The World Federation on behalf of donors from around the world. The meat was then distributed among deserving families and individuals.
Thanks to the on-going support of our regional partners, The Council of European Jamaats and NASIMCO, a total of 558 qurbanis were ordered through them and through The World Federation worldwide for this year’s Eid Qurbani.
