The meat of human kindness shared
On the occasion of the Feast of the Sacrifice, Somali Relief Fund (USA) and Human Concern International (Canada), fundraised about $33.000. The money was donated by US and Canadian Somali and Muslim communities.
They donated this money to HIRDA to buy and distribute meat to internally displaced people in Somalia, who have fled their homes, and now live in poor conditions in improvised housing.
It is tradition that well-to-do Muslims donate a sum to the less affluent, so they too can afford to celebrate the most important feast in Muslim faith. With the help of SRF and HCI, and the donations of local families, about 1000 displaced families in 15 regions in Somalia have received meat.
