HCI’s Qurbani/Zabiha Program provides a means for Muslims around the world to fulfill their religious obligation of donating their annual sacrifice of meat to vulnerable families around the world.

STORIES FROM THE FIELD: Amin Ahmed
This is Amin Ahmed. Amin was a porter working in Al-Hodaidah. Last year, the dire circumstances forced him to move to Sanna with his family (mother, 3 children, a widow sister and her daughter).
The conflict in Yemen has made life difficult for him. Today he is struggling to provide his family with basic necessities. He spends his day looking for labor job opportunities, and although he works very hard, he does not make enough to fulfill the needs of his family.
These were Amin’s words when he received the Qurbani meat:
“These days, living conditions are very bad and difficult. It is hard to meet the basic needs of my family. With the rising prices of food, clothing, and basic necessities, it has become more difficult to provide for my children. Most of the time, I don’t have enough money. I borrow from neighbors, and it is difficult for me to pay back my debts. To survive these days, I rely on humanitarian assistance. My family and I are thankful for HCI and it’s donors to give the chance to enjoy a decent meal during these uncertain times.”
HCI has been proudly serving the Muslim community for 40 years, and through your generosity and support, our programs are continuously improving the lives of many vulnerable people. Each donation made enables us to further the mission of taking impoverished people from crisis to sustainability.
