Beyond Qurbani: Inclusivity and Sustainable Solutions to Community Challenges

Remembering The Needy on Eid Al-Adha

Eid Al-Adha is a highly anticipated celebration for Muslims globally. Millions of pilgrims celebrate Eid after completing Hajj. Billions of others celebrate Eid after fasting the Day of Arafah. And there are less fortunate people living in precarious situations who relish the day they receive a few kilos of meat. Eid, for them, is a day of luxury.

But what about those in need who don’t or can’t eat meat? We want to ensure that no one is left out and everyone feels included. So we’re providing families with “Beyond Qurbani” relief that includes food packs with essentials such as lentils, rice, and chickpeas, as well as stipends for Eid clothes, shoes, and more.

Without a doubt, the Prophetic and Islamic practice of Qurbani benefits communities immensely. Read more here. But we must keep that momentum going, impact change, and cement sustainable solutions for communities in crisis “Beyond Qurbani.”

Impact Beyond Qurbani

HCI focuses on long-term solutions moving families from crisis to sustainability through education, access to clean water, health services, and livelihood programs. Providing relief to those in need is done best in consultation with the recipients. What do they believe they need to improve their condition?

HCI has open projects that are helping communities build better futures for families and their children, most notably in crisis countries.

Syria: Hope Village Project

HCI is constructing a village with brick housing, a mosque for the community, and a school with classrooms to further children’s education. The project is restoring a sense of peace, stability, and a return to normalcy for internally displaced Syrian families.

More resources are needed to build more homes for more families in need.

Gaza: Home and Hospital Repairs

From economic challenges to Israeli attacks, Gaza is constantly facing a crisis. HCI has been assisting those in need and rebuilding affected communities every time. Ongoing projects include rehabilitating homes and health facilities damaged by attacks on the strip.

More resources are needed to continue repairing and rehabilitation family homes and hospitals.

Yemen: Mobile Health Clinic and Monthly Food Distribution

As you may already know, Yemen is the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. To serve the needs of Yemeni families, especially women-headed families, HCI operates a mobile health clinic and a monthly food distribution program. Health and nutrition are essentials for human life.

Donations go towards feeding families in need and operating mobile health clinics.

Be Beyond Qurbani

You may have already satisfied your religious duty and obligation ahead of Eid Al-Adha. Still, please consider furthering your impact “Beyond Qurbani.”

While Eid is for Everyone, we return to a life of comfort and privilege while they return to a life of crisis and hardship.
