ACTNews, BATAM – Global Qurban-ACT and Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia (MRI) Batam City sacrificed qurbani and distributed its meat in Bengkong Indah Atas Village, Bengkong District, Batam City. This activity was carried out on Tuesday (7/20/2021).

After years of absence, the residents of Bengkong Indah Atas Village were finally able to taste delicious qurbani meat. Muslims are a minority in the village with only 60 families. They are able to eat meat once in a while during aqiqah events.

“The residents here are happy and grateful to the benefactors, Global Qurban-ACT Team, and MRI Batam City. Alhamdulillah, this year we can feel the Qurbani celebration and taste Qurbani meat,” said Ustaz Aris, a local community leader.

Seeing the happiness of Bengkong Indah Atas residents, Khairul from the ACT Riau Program Team invites Indonesian benefactors to perform Qurbani. "Insha Allah, we can still be allowed to perform the Qurbani in the next three days of Tashreeq. Let's take advantage of the best Qurbani this year," he added. []
