Millions of Muslims around the world get together as Eid al-Adha draws closer. The ritual of sacrificing for the sake of Allah, namely Qurban, reminds all Muslims, regardless of their race, language and color of skin, that they are part of an ummah (community).   

Eid al-Adha acts as a bridge to help Muslim societies become more informed about each other and come closer in solidarity. 

The IHH first organized Qurban campaigns in 33 countries in 1993 when it was established and has raised the number to 120 this year. 

The IHH will accept Qurban donations until the first day of Eid al-Adha. You can contribute to this charity campaign by donating 250 Turkish liras for each Qurban. 

The foundation is working incessantly to deliver donations of benevolent Turkish Muslims to needy people worldwide. Qurban events will be held in 120 countries and regions such as Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Somalia, Zimbabwe, Cuba, Haiti, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kyrgyzstan, Arakan, Pattani, Cambodia and Indonesia. Conflict-ridden regions of the world will be visited and orphans will be extended aid.
