Our goal this Eid al-Adha 2023 is to feed 2000 families in Northern Lebanon by securing 20 cows in the area at a cost of $1925 per cow. Each cow can feed around 100 families.
Last Eid al-Adha (2022) you made this possible through your donations, and we were able to raise enough funds for 20 cows total.
As you can see , the humanitarian need is still dire, as costs of animals have gone up and the value of the Lira has deteriorated. In these first 10 days of Dhul-Hijja your generosity is needed.
Lebanon is enduring a humanitarian catastrophe created by a financial meltdown. The poorest of families are now poorer due to the devaluation of their currency and shortages in the supply chain. We feel compelled to help.
Donations are closed for this Eid 2023, please bookmark this page for 2024.
We’ve provided you with four ways to donate:
1- “Feed One Family” While this does not count as Udhiya, you can still contribute to help feed the needy.
2- “One Udhiya Share” will purchase 1/7th of a cow, costing $275 US dollars, allowing you to share with others the expense of performing Udhiya this year. One share will feed around 14 families.
3- “Entire Cow for Udhiya” for those of you with means or who are pooling resources, you can purchase an entire cow (7 shares) to be slaughtered and distributed to the poor. This will feed 100 families.
4- “Entire Sheep for Udhiya” for those that want to purchase a single sheep for Udhiya, the cost is $325 US dollars.
Use the Stripe form above for payment. When payment is successful, you will be taken to a “Payment Confirmation” page. Please print that page for your records.
