Qurban requests through Mahboba's Promise
Through the selflessness of our generous supporters last year, we were able to provide Qurban to 915 impoverished families and over 300 orphans across six different regions of Afghanistan – Kabul,Panjshir, Takhar, Parwan, Badakhshan, and Bamyan. We distributed meat to families in outlying districts who had not eaten meat for a long time, to children whose fathers were killed and were impoverish and to a blind widow who had been kicked out of her home by her family-in- law due to her disability.
These are but a handful of the stories of the people touched by the generosity of last year’s donations. This year, you can create new stories of joy and comfort as we seek to reach more Afghans in need.
As the cost of Qurban request is determined by the price of a sheep, the price is fixed at $100.
Message from Mahboba
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh Brothers and Sisters
Through our Qurban appeals of previous years, we have been able to provide many needy families, widows, and orphans with a Qurbani. These are people who would otherwise have been unable to participate in Qurban, or even to gain nutrition from the meat. On this Eid al-Adha, I particularly want to extend our generosity to the children of Badakhshan orphanage. These children, as many of you know, have been bereft of support for almost six months before we discovered their plight and provided them security.
We have brought these children an unfathomably long way from destitution in the short space of time we’ve had to care for them, now let’s come together to give them the chance to participate in Qurban and to supply them with meat on this special occasion.
