qurbani

Rohingya Culture Center is collecting Qurbani/Udhiya this year for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and Rohingya in Burma.

In Rakhine province in Burma, where the Rohingya live, it’s particularly rare for them to eat meat. Many of their livestock were stolen in 2017 by the Burmese authorities. There are ongoing local embargoes on Muslim communities by the larger Buddhist population. Hence animals need to purchased and brought in from outside Rakhine, making them prohibitively expensive for the local population.

Within the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh, the primary diet consists of rice and lentils which is rationed by the UNHCR. Due to the lack of income and affordability it is also rare for the refugees to have meat.

Thus for many Rohingya, Eid al-Adha is the only time of the year when they eat meat. Please consider donating your Qurbani to them. Cost is $100 per share in a cow. Use the attached link to donate via PayPal.
