Qatar Charity (QC) will distribute 1,000 sacrificial animals to Syrian refugees both inside and outside their homeland on the occasion of Eid Al Adha.

The goodwill gesture is aimed at sharing Eid joy with the Syrians refugees in various camps in Syria, Turkey and Jordan. The sacrificial animals were purchased through the ‘Make them happy with your sacrifice’ campaign intended to ensure that even the poor and needy have the opportunity to participate in the celebrations.

The charity organisation allocated around 600 of the animals to the refugees within Syria as part of its efforts to focus on the internally displaced persons. The QC also allotted about 250 animals to Syrian refugees in Jordan and about 100 to those in Turkey.

Representatives of QC will oversee the distribution of the animals in collaboration with their local partners.

Chairman of Strategy and Support Services for International Programs at QC Ibrahim Zainal will supervise the distribution of the sacrificial animals in Jordan, while QC’s Executive Director for International Operations Mohammed Mubarak Salem al Adsani will oversee the distribution process in Turkey.

The representatives hope to provide consolation to the refugees and share the joy of the festive occasion with them. The charity body has also distributed various relief items to the refugees at different camps in Syria, Turkey and Jordan. The ‘Make them happy with your sacrifice’ campaign continues in order to receive more donations towards the purchase of sacrificial animals in future for onward delivery to the needy recipients.
