ACTNews, JAKARTA – As Eid Al-Adha is approaching, the COVID-19 pandemic still has not receded. In fact, more people have been infected. Sadly, this pandemic affects not only the health of the community, but also the financial condition of many communities.

For this reason, Global Qurban - ACT will provide the best qurbani meat in the upcoming Eid Al-Adha 1441 AH especially to the poor and those whose financial condition is severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. There will be thousands of qurbani animals that will be distributed to various regions, especially those that are the epicenters of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Global Qurban – ACT Coordinator Sukorini, explained that the COVID-19 affected communities in Java, especially in the centers of the COVID-19 spread, are the main target of the qurbani distribution. Jakarta Metropolitan Area (Jabodetabek) is one of the areas that will be reached by Global Qurban’s meat distribution because this area is one of the most severely-affected by the outbreak. "We aim to reach underprivileged communities, daily workers, and those who have been laid off," Sukorini explained.

Not only in Jabodetabek, the distribution of sacrificial meat will also reach remote areas of Indonesia and countries affected by the humanitarian crisis because they too have been affected by the pandemic.

With the theme "Labbaik Berkurban Terbaik", Global Qurban hopes that distributed sacrificial meat will be able to alleviate food crisis amid the pandemic. []
