Qurbani 2021 feedback

We closed Eid ul-Adha 2021 with a total of 41,200 Qurbani orders. IKCA supporters from the UK alone offered a record breaking 14,645 cow shares and 2,405 goats this year. Your donations allowed us to distribute 474,600 KGs of meat to feed over 81,000 families from Pakistan’s most needy communities.  

Did you know that for some of our beneficiaries, your Qurbani offering might be the only time they get to eat meat this year? Our 2021 distribution was focused on reaching Pakistan’s poorest throughout Sheikhupura, Sialkot, Peshawar, Bannu, Multan, Lahore, Gujranwala, Islamabad, Okara and Faisalabad. These were families and vulnerable people hardest hit financially by COVID and its lockdowns, since last year. Thank you, and May Allah (swt) accept your sacrifice.

As with every year, we made no profit on carrying out your Qurbani. The price you paid covered the full cost of your preferred Qurbani animal as well as the work that went into carrying out the sacrifice.

As with last year, we took great care during our Qurbani distributions.

With the pandemic still at large, our mission has been twofold:

To reach those hardest hit by the global crisis, which cost thousands of day labourers their livelihoods in Pakistan and made life even more difficult for the nation’s poorest.

To ensure our staff delivered your Qurbani to them without creating a health risk! This was particularly important, as so many of our beneficiaries were vulnerable, elderly people.

Masks were worn, social distancing observed and attention to hygiene was our utmost priority. Our beneficiaries were happy to avoid the jostling crowds of previous years, as they organised in queues to receive their meat with dignity and care. With the grace of Allah (swt), your generous support and the hard work of all our staff, many of Pakistan’s poorest families were able to eat meat this Eid ul-Adha, despite all the challenges.

Your choice to offer Qurbani with IKCA is testament to the trust we’ve gained as a responsible charity, not just in the field of cancer treatment, but in ensuring your Qurbani is performed to the highest standard and according to the practices of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Thank you. May Allah (swt) bless you and accept your Qurbani.
