BIHAR, INDIA July 25, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently distributed fresh meat for 17,836 meals to impoverished families in India during the Islamic holiday season of sacrifice known as Udhiyah.
Approximately 1,820 beneficiaries received portions of meat from locally-sourced cows. Many of the recipients live in the Araria district of Bihar bordering Nepal, an area prone to flooding. Recipients included women-headed households, those with disabilities and the elderly.
In parts of India and many Muslim-majority countries, nutrient-rich meat is often procured through charitable gifts on occasions like the Udhiyah. This year, Baitulmaal distributed approximately 54 tons of fresh meat to beneficiaries in various poverty-stricken and conflict ridden areas of the world for the Udhiyah season.
In addition to seasonal Islamic giving programs, Baitulmaal coordinates emergency aid efforts, water, hygiene and sanitation projects, orphan support programs and other humanitarian aid to under-served populations regardless of faith or nationality.
