This year, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation carried out its Qurban organizations with the slogan “Qurban is a Mercy” in Turkey and 52 other countries. IHH, that first launched its proxy Qurban project in 1993 with the collaboration of a group of charitable people, has distributed Qurban to millions of people as part of its annual Qurban operations for the past 28 years. Donors were able to sacrifice their Qurban from among the countries listed for our Qurban project locations.

As part of our Qurban campaign, with the support of our donors IHH distributed 82.411 qurban shares to 3.951.780 people in need. IHH also distributed Eid clothing to 184.552 orphans and children in need. This year IHH was able to help a total of 4.136.332 people with its Qurban and Eid projects.
