Doctors Worldwide is pleased to announce the launch of it’s 2016 Qurbani Meat Program.

We are pleased to announce our Qurbani 2016 Program for distributing much needed meat during the Muslim festival of Eid ul Adha. Now in it’s 5th year, we are offering a limited opportunity to purchase your Qurbani share and help the poor who live in the vicinity of our DWW Mualafatul Qulub Medical Centre, near Malindi in Kenya. Our presence in these areas give us a deep understanding of who best to help.

As a result of the Brexit referendum, many UK international charities have been affected by adverse  currency movements. To maintain affordability we have made some changes to our program to keep costs low. This means we are no longer offering the additional nutritional element of 3kg of rice per qurbani share.

– Each share will cost £45. 

Our 2015 program was a success with support from donors enabling us to distribute 3,600kg of fresh meat and 1,500 kg of high quality rice. We weigh each animal and the average amount of fresh meat per share was 14.29kg. This benefited nearly 9,000 adults and children who were identified as widows, orphans, the elderly and needy.

Doctors Worldwide is appealing to our friends and supporters to purchase their Qurbani and help those in need. We source all the animals locally to contribute to the region’s economy and support local farmers. The meat is distributed fresh during the days of Eid ul Adha.

Poverty is a daily part of the lives of the people we help. For many of them, this festival is the only opportunity to eat meat in the year. Your Qurbani purchase will enable them join you in the celebration of Eid ul Adha and boost their health.
