GAZA, PALESTINE August 10, 2021 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian relief agency, recently distributed fresh meat for 20,640 meals to families in the Gaza Strip during the Islamic holiday season of sacrifice known as Udhiyah.
Approximately 3,500 families living in various camps and settlements in Gaza, Rafah, Khan Younis and surrounding areas received portions of meat from locally-sourced cows.
In 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.
