IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation aims to reach out to people in need through this year’s qurban organization that will be carried out in 65 countries with the slogan “Remember them on Eid al-Adha.” IHH first launched a qurban project via proxy in 1993, and has been visiting tens of countries every year and delivering aid to those in need ever since.

IHH has determined this year’s cost of a qurban at 1.200TL both in Turkey and abroad.  Those who wish to donate to IHH via proxy will have their qurban sacrificed in the country of their choice (from our specified countries) and distributed to the deprived and needy in that country. IHH that has delivered a total of 82.411 qurban shares to 4 million deprived people aims to exceed the number this year.

In 2021 Eid al Adha, IHH will be distributing qurban donations in 65 countries including Turkey. On this occasion, IHH will not only deliver qurban meat to brothers and sisters in need, but will also continue to support these people with various projects aimed at improving their living conditions.


Teams will reach the deprived under difficult conditions

IHH teams will sacrifice the qurban donated by donors and do their best to ensure its delivery to the needy. IHH will collaborate with humanitarian aid organizations in Turkey and its representatives and partner organizations abroad. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the conditions of the countries we plan to visit will be taken into consideration.  While some of our teams will be traveling by plane, others will make different efforts to reach those in need under extremely difficult conditions in regions were the roads are insufficient. But despite these difficulties, IHH teams will be delivering the qurbans entrusted to them in the countries they travel to.


The ties of brotherhood will become stronger

While delivering the qurban shares to the needy, IHH will embrace people in various regions to establish a bridge of brotherhood with the societies and spread a ray of hope to those in need. IHH not only aims to deliver the qurbans to Muslims all over the world, but also strengthen the ties of brotherhood and the sense of sharing and solidarity.


Turkey and regions of crisis will be given priority   

In this year’s qurban, our foundation will give priority to refugee camps, regions suffering from war, natural disasters, chronic famine and poverty, the elderly, orphans, widows, orphanages, schools and hospitals. In this context, priority will be given to Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Somalia, Yemen, Bangladesh, Arakan and East Turkistan. Priority will also be given to the needy in Turkey.

 Orphans will welcome the Eid with joy

IHH will also distribute Eid clothing to more than 100.000 orphans in a total of 30 countries including Turkey. Donors can donate 150TL to clothe an orphan for Eid.
