ACTNews, PALU - Global Qurban - ACT Central Sulawesi is working relentlessly to help the needy and impoverished. On the day of Eid Al-Adha 1441 AH that fell on Friday (7/31), Global Qurban - ACT slaughtered hundreds of qurbani animals mandated by Indonesian benefactors and several humanitarian agencies, including Insani Yardim Vakfi (IHH).
Global Qurban – ACT Central Sulawesi Program Coordinator Mustafa said, the total number of qurbani animals slaughtered on Friday (7/31) and Saturday (8/1) is 14 cows and 220 goats. On Friday, the cattle were sacrificed and the whole activities were done in accordance with the COVID-19 health protocol. The meat was then delivered to the poor in Banggai Laut Regency, Sigi Regency, and Parigi Moutong Regency.
"In Banggai Laut, we slaughtered two cows, in Parigi Moutong one cow, and Sigi one cow. In the city of Palu, we slaughtered 10 cows which were mainly sacrificed in Duyu Village, Tatanga Subdistrict, Palu City. We aim to finish the distribution of the meat today,” he said, Friday (7/31).
In Duyu Village, the qurbani meat will be distributed to 200 disadvantaged families because Duyu Village is one of the areas affected by the earthquake in 2018. In addition, many residents have been financially affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
"That is why we are focusing the qurbani distribution here. Many workers, especially in the Duyu Kelurahan, have been laid off and have not been able to work until now. This is part of our efforts to help each other," Mustafa added.
The cutting of the qurbani animals will continue on Saturday (8/1), with the sacrifice of 220 goats. "Insha Allah, the goats will be slaughtered tomorrow on Saturday, and the distribution will last until the second or third day after Eid Al-Adha," Mustafa said.
Masriani, one of the residents of Duyu Village said, she was grateful to receive sacrificial meat from Global Qurban - ACT. She hoped that Global Qurban - ACT Central Sulawesi will continue with its efforts to assist the needy. "Thank you ACT, thank you IHH, may Allah repay your kindness," she said.
Nurmajani Loulembah, Global Qurban – ACT Central Sulawesi Branch Manager said, the slaughtering and distribution of qurbani animals throughout Indonesia will take place until the third day after EId Al-Adha, Monday (8/3). "Insha Allah, we will distribute the qurbani until three days after Eid Al-Adha. For people who still want to distribute their qurbani animals through Global Qurban - ACT, they can go directly to the Global Qurban website or through the Global Qurban - ACT branch office near them," Nurmajani concluded.
