Bulgarian Muslims strengthened their non-material binds with neighboring Turkish Muslims through sacrifice slaughters. During the feast, 126 sacrificial animals were slaughtered and their meats were delivered to needy people. 
Sacrifices that were slaughtered in Kircaali and Cebel towns on the second day of the feast under the organization of chief mufti of Bulgaria were distributed in regions where Muslims live with the help of 12 regional muftis on the third and fourth days of the feast. Over 1,000 families received sacrifice meat thanks to this organization. 

  
In certain regions, sacrifice meats were donated to NGOs and educational institutions. Donations were made to an orphanage in the city of Pleven and a Quranic teaching school in the town of Madan. Several village schools were also donated sacrifice meat.
