The coronavirus has brought great misfortune to millions of people from all walks of life, but those who were already vulnerable are paying the highest price. Together, we can help them in their time of need and bring the pleasure of Eid right to their homes in a safe and healthy manner. 

This year, many of us have faced struggles that we didn’t anticipate facing and many of us have had to make sacrifices to keep our families and friends safe. The coronavirus spread like wildfire across the globe, bringing infection and death to countless communities in 188 countries and territories. 

While lockdown measures and social distancing have played an important role in a decline in cases and dedicated healthcare professionals have helped over 5 million people recover globally, the virus is still circulating and affecting the most vulnerable among us. 

In a time of corona, the poor and disadvantaged are the ones who hurt the most. It’s not simply that they don’t have the means to practice heightened hygiene practices at home but for many families, the coronavirus has made it extremely difficult to put food on the table. 

Their livelihoods were precarious before this global pandemic started but now, with so many people losing the opportunity to work and provide for their families, they truly hang in the balance. Your Qurbani could be the thing that stands in their way of starvation. 

Staying Safe

This year, with the coronavirus affecting millions of people all over the globe, it is more important than ever to honour our obligation of Qurbani and remember our responsibility to the less fortunate. It is our devotion that reaches Allah (SWT) but the precious meat from our sacrifice goes straight to our brothers and sisters who need it most, bringing them the joy of Eid ul-Adha in these hard times.

In order to make sure that impoverished families can enjoy your nutritious Qurbani meat this Eid, while receiving it in a safe and regulated way, donating your sacrifice through a charity like Penny Appeal is essential. 

Penny Appeal is dedicated to fulfilling your duty of Qurbani, following strict Islamic rule, and adhering to appropriate hygiene practices to keep everyone safe in this current climate. The coronavirus will make this Dhul Hijjah very different for everyone but with care and support, we can still make sure that the less fortunate in our ummah receive their share of Qurbani meat. 

Penny Appeal has put in place social distancing and hygiene procedures to safely distribute Qurbani while managing the risk of infection throughout Asia, Africa, and here in the UK. The use of PPE, such as gloves and masks, frequent hand washing, setting up sanitation stations and keeping at least 2 metres apart where possible during distributions will all play an essential role in preventing the spread of the coronavirus while distributing your sacrifices. 

Saving Lives

When you choose to donate Qurbani with Penny Appeal, you can rest assured that we have sourced only the healthiest animals from local farmers and have carried out your obligation saying, “Bismillahi Allahu Akbar” when the sacrifice takes place. 

Just one sacrifice can provide 57 nutritious meals for those living in poverty and with the coronavirus taking so much from them already, it’s vital that they receive your support. 

With Penny Appeal, you can choose where your sacrifice is going and choose to donate where you feel it’s most needed. You can feed families in Asia or Africa on Eid for just £29 or choose to donate your Qurbani in the UK for £159. If you decide that you’d like to help your neighbours here in the UK with your Qurbani, you can also choose to receive a third of the meat for you and your family to enjoy over Eid as well. 

Keeping Healthy

Wherever you choose to donate your Qurbani this year, the important thing is that you are helping our brothers and sisters who don’t have the means to help themselves right now and honouring Allah (SWT) in the best of ways. 

The coronavirus has brought great misfortune to millions of people from all walks of life, but those who were already vulnerable are paying the highest price. Together, we can help them in their time of need and bring the pleasure of Eid right to their homes in a safe and healthy manner. 

Offer your Qurbani with Penny Appeal today to make sure your sacrifice is delivered on Eid ul-Adha, with every measure in place to protect our brothers and sisters from the coronavirus pandemic.
