WHY QURBAN CAMPAIGN?
The word “Qurban” appears thrice in the Quran: once in reference to animal sacrifice and twice referring to sacrifice in the general sense of any act which may bring one closer to God. Every year, during Eid al-Adha, Muslims around the world slaughter an animal – typically a sheep, goat, camel or cow – to commemorate the Prophet Ibrahim and his ultimate sacrifice. Meat is an important source of vitamins and minerals. In many developing and emerging countries, however, it is an almost priceless luxury for many people. According to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization, annual per capita consumption is 4 kg in Bangladesh, 4.4 kg in India, and 6.3 kg in Sri Lanka. In African countries, the consumption is only slightly higher at 7.8 kg in Mozambique, 8.1 kg in Gambia, 8.8 kg in Nigeria and 9.6 kg in Tanzania. With the Qurban campaign, Hasene International reaches the needy in 100 countries in the world for this important worship service by distributing the Qurban shares. Every year we are active in over 100 countries worldwide to distribute the meat of the donated Qurban shares.

Since the prices for a sacrificial animal differ from country to country, the donations received are collected in a pool. From there, they are forwarded to the job sites as required
All donations received are used to slaughter sacrificial animals. However, due to the pool system, we cannot make a precise statement about the country in which an individual donation is used. A local donation is not possible.
