The day when there should be no hungry
The time of Eid al-Adha festival is coming nearer, when Muslims all over the world make sacrifice and distribute the meat to their needy brothers and sisters. It is the time when Solidarity Foundation is going to carry on campaigns in many parts of Russia – Dagestan, Chechnya, Ingushetia, Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, Kabardino-Balkaria, etc.
Just imagine: every 3.6 seconds somebody dies of hunger in the world.
One in three children’s death is from hunger. In this rich and flourishing world 200 million children are chronically malnourished.
Doesn’t the world produce enough food to feed everyone?
The population of Earth has increased by 70% since 1970, but the amount of food produced has increased many times more!
There is enough food to provide for all the people on our planet, but every day 25 000 people die from hunger in the world…
There is no immediate solution to this problem. But there is a day when there are no hungry. When every house is blessed with kindness.
The holiday of Eid al-Adha in the blessed month of Dhul-Hijjah is a festival for all the poor, the disadvantaged and those in need. This day is different from all other days because it is time of charity, when fullness comes in every home.
Allah says in the Holy Qur’an: “… Eat from them [sacrificial animals], and feed the poor who is contented with his lot, as well as him who is forced to beg” (Surah “Al-Hajj”, 36).
During the Eid al-Adha, the feast of the end of the pilgrimage – the Hajj, Muslims around the world sacrifice animals and distribute the meat to the needy and hungry, in memory of the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim.
Every year on this holiday Solidarity Foundation distributes sacrificial meat among the most disadvantaged – ill people, the disabled, elderly singles, widows and orphans, who often have no meat for months on end.
We shall visit the poorest homes in Moscow, Dagestan, Chechnya, Tatarstan, Ingushetia and Bashkortostan, Kabardino-Balkaria, the Nizhny Novgorod region – to bring people hope on this sacred festival.
It is essential that we feel keenly our responsibility, that we find a way to feed them and save them. Rich and well-off people need to take a step down and help those who live in poverty to rise.
Solidarity Foundation will help you to give joy to those who desperately need such a “trifle” as a proper hot meal. We will help you to make happy at least one family by relieving it from despair and starvation.
Join the Solidarity team on the day when there should be no hungry.
Make your sacrifice.
The cost of a sacrificial lamb is 5 500 rubles, the cost of 1/7 of a cow is 7 000 rubles.
