As part of our first ever Qurbani campaign, Street Child are committed to arrange distribution of nutritious meat to the most vulnerable families, especially within isolated communities across Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Somalia between 10th July and 12th July 2022.
The impact of the coronavirus pandemic, war, famine, poverty and natural disasters mean those that are less fortunate are struggling to eat meat, a luxury that they can only dream of. Our ‘Where Most Needed’ option is designed to ensure your Qurbani is distributed to those who really have nowhere else to turn.
Giving Qurbani means that you can share the joy of Eid al-Adha – we will ensure your generous gift help families experience an Eid of dignity and happiness, free from the burden of hunger.
We will take full ownership of your qurbani by utilising our own staff on the ground to get engaged on the full process as shown below.

Qurbani means sacrifice. Every year during the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah. Muslims around the world slaughter an animal – a goat, sheep, cow or camel – to reflect the Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail, for the sake of God. It is encouraged to give sacrificial meat to those in need as a way of fulfilling the Islamic ethos of social responsibility.
The sacrifice of animals is needed to provide meat to households due to the following reasons:
Cost of qurbani will vary depending on the livestock, country and availability. A share of qurbani can cost a minimum of £30 (TBC) this year and can vary depending upon the country in which it is purchased.
Giving Qurbani is obligatory for every Adult Muslim who has wealth in excess to their needs (i.e. who meet the nisab threshold).
Nisab is the minimum amount of wealth a Muslim must possess before they become eligible to pay Zakat. Normally those who are eligible to pay Zakat are obliged to give Qurbani.
There are two Nisab values from which the threshold is determined.
Gold: the monetary value of 87.48 grams = £3,576
Silver: the monetary value of 612.36 grams = £363
Nisab threshold tend to vary due to the fluctuation of gold and silver.
Qurbani meat can be distributed to anyone in need and can be given to family members, friends and the poor regardless of their faith.
The impact of the coronavirus pandemic, war, famine, poverty and natural disaster means people are struggling to put food on the table. Our ‘Where Most Needed’ option is designed to ensure your Qurbani is distributed to those who really have nowhere else to turn.
Our team are committed to arrange distribution of nutritious meat to impoverished families, especially within isolated communities within Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Somalia so they can benefit from your gift.
Your Qurbani donation must be actioned in a timely fashion so that Street Child can perform qurbani on any of the 3 days of Eid, whether on the first day of Eid al Adha or on the second or third day.
In order to respect and adhere to the difference of opinion amongst scholars as to whether Qurbani can be performed over 3 days or 4 days, Street Child will implement qurbani over 3 days, between 10th July and 12th July 2022.
In order to implement qurbani within the 3 days of Eid, you can make donations until 4 days before the start of Eid i.e. on 6th July 2022. This will enable Street Child to purchase the animals to be slaughtered in advance to ensure qurbani is implemented and meat distributed to the recipients between 10th and 12th July 2022.
Specific criteria’s must be followed to ensure animals which are eligible meets the following requirements as a minimum.
Sheep / Goats: at least one year in age (equivalent to 1 Qurbani only)
Cows: at least two years in age (equivalent to 7 Qurbani – can be shared by 7 people)
Street Child will make sure, all animals in relation to Qurbani are healthy and free of disease, including the following conditions:
They cannot be excessively thin or lean
They must be able to walk themselves to the site of the slaughter
They cannot be toothless, or missing over half their teeth
They must not be blind or one-eyed
They must not have a lame leg that is sufficiently weak that they are unable to walk on it
