Qurban 2016 Delivered
Australian Relief Organisation has recently completed its fourth Qurban Appeal. Thanks to your generous donations towards our “Qurban Appeal 2016” project, we were able to feed thousands of locals in Sri Lanka and South Africa.
On 10 September 2016, an ARO delegation from Sydney arrived at Sri Lanka to monitor the qurban distribution process to the poor and the needy across the island. During the course of the project, Intercultural Dialogue Foundation of Sri Lanka has provided their assistance as our partner organisation. They also hosted our team and coordinated their travelling during their stay in the Country.
Our volunteers from Sydney; Ozer Yilmazlar and his family travelled to different parts of the country. There, they provided qurban meat to thousands of locals with ARO plastic bags. Our second volunteer to the country; Hamit Yolcu from Sydney, headed another delegation with IDF reps and they were warmly welcomed by locals when distributing thousands of meat bags.
On another occasion, Dr Naing Win from Sydney, travelled to South Africa as an ARO volunteer. After fourteen hours of travel, Dr Win arrived at Johannesburg. During the course of the project, Gift of Hope Foundation of South Africa has provided their assistance as our partner organisation. They also hosted Dr Win and provided logistical support during his stay in the Country.
Following the eid payer at Nizamiye Mosque, Dr. Win personally attended the slaughtering process of the donated animals from Australia at a local complex. Under Dr. Win’s supervision, thousands of locals received qurban meat in the presence of State Minister Nandi Mayathula Khoza at Thembisa, Soweto, Alexandra and Thokozo regions.
We would like to thank those who supported this auspicious project with their qurban donations. Our special thanks go to our volunteers who travelled to Sri Lanka and South Africa to monitor the distribution process.
