Our goal this Eid al-Adha was to feed 1500 families in Northern Lebanon by securing 15 cows in the area at a cost of $1750 per cow. Each cow can feed around 100 families.
You made this possible through your donations, and we were able to raise enough funds for 20 cows total. The money raised for this purposes has already begun to be transferred to Lebanon in order to meet the Eid al-Adha holiday.
The humanitarian need is still dire, and therefore we will keep general donations open until Eid in order to allow you to continue to gain blessings and reward through you charity in these first 10 days of Dhul-Hijja. Udhiya however will not remain open.
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.
We’ve provided you with three 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, allowing you to share with others the expense of performing Udhiya this year. This will feed around 14 families. 3- “Entire 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- Feed the Needy” choose the amount you would like to provide the poor and needy and it will be forwarded to the Zakat Fund of Kalamoun, Koura, and Batroun.
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.
