IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation’s qurban organization this year is themed “Qurban is a Mercy”. We aim to reach the needy with our qurban organization in Turkey and 52 other countries. IHH organized its first qurban project in Turkey in 1993 with a group of charitable people. In 28 years, IHH has delivered qurban shares to millions of people by visiting tens of countries.
IHH has set this year’s qurban price both locally and abroad. The qurban that you donate to IHH will be performed in the country of your choice among the listed countries and distributed to the deprived and needy. Last year IHH distributed a total of 51.447 qurban shares to more than 2 million people, and our aim is to increase the number this year.
What will we be doing?
As part of its 2020 qurban operations, IHH will deliver qurban donations to those in need in Turkey and 52 other countries. This year, IHH teams will not only deliver qurban shares to our brothers and sisters that can hardly wait for it, but at the same time will also continue to support these people with various projects aimed at improving their living conditions.
Teams will reach beneficiaries under difficult conditions
IHH teams will make every effort to perform the qurban and deliver its meat to the needy. IHH will work together with local humanitarian aid organizations, their representatives and partner organizations abroad. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, health conditions of the countries visited will also be taken into consideration. While some of our teams will travel by plane, others will have to travel by car under difficult conditions in regions where infrastructure is lacking. Despite the difficulties, IHH teams will ensure to deliver the qurban entrusted to them by donors in the countries they visit.
Ties of brotherhood will become stronger
While delivering qurban shares to the regions in need, IHH embraces the people in those regions to establish a bridge of brotherhood and spread a ray of hope. IHH not only aims to deliver the qurban to Muslims all over the world, but also strengthen the ties of brotherhood and the sense of sharing and solidarity.
