ACTNews, KAYSERI – Uighur Muslims who fled to Kayseri, Turkey have to live a life full of difficulties and limitations. Many Uighur Muslims seek asylum in Turkey because they can no longer withstand the violence that is happening in their homeland, Xinjiang.
In Kayseri Turkey, they have to struggle more since food, and daily necessities are lacking. Moreover, since they are not Turkish, it is difficult for the Uighurs to rent a house, access proper education, and get jobs.
"Their status as a displaced community is a big barrier to living properly in Turkey. However, amid the limitations, they are always optimistic about living a tough life. Insha Allah, we will always try to help the Uighur Muslims," said Firdaus Guritno from the Global Qurban-ACT team, Wednesday (6/30/2021).
Global Qurban-ACT strives to ease the difficulties of the Uighur families by distributing Qurbani animals to them.
“Eid ul-Adha is the right time to show our gratitude by sharing our wealth with our Uighur Muslim brothers and sisters,” concluded Firdaus.
In 2021, Global Qurban-ACT will continue to distribute Qurbani animals to Uighur Muslims in addition to other Muslim communities in countries afflicted by conflict, colonialism, and poverty.
