This year, BAPA will be working with several
international Islamic relief agencies for our Qurban and Aqiqah projects. For the second year running, we will be
partnering with Muslim Aid, Islamic Relief Worldwide, Ethar Relief, Imdaad Foundation and Rumah Yatim to provide
relief and humanitarian aid to the orphans and most needy people worldwide, insyaAllah.
The main purpose of this project is to ensure that our qurban or
sacrifices goes to our Muslim brothers and sisters who really need it.
sacrificing of Qurban or Udhiya is a highly recommended religious act. Prophet Muhammad SAW (pbuh) ordered each
family to do so at least once a year. We call on you to donate your sacrifice, religious duty, to the world's
most needy families - give a Qurban4Life.
QURBAN PROJECT OVERVIEW & OBJECTIVES
1. Through this project we hope to provide food and medical
aid to over 27,000 orphans in Eritrea, Somalia, Sudan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Aceh and various other parts of
2. Our other objectives is also to alleviate the sufferings
and hardships faced by our brothers & sisters and their families in the Horn Of Africa and other parts of
Asia - like the Syrian & Rohingya refugees displaced due to conflict.
According to the UN and our partners, East Africa
or the Horn Of Africa is facing a major humanitarian crisis with our brothers and sisters there facing severe
draught, food & water shortages. There are acute levels of hunger and malnutrition as food prices continue
to escalate, with women, children and elderly increasingly vulnerable.
A shortage of food, water and medicines, made worse
by persistent drought conditions in the region have forced thousands of people to flee their homes and seek
refuge in refugee camps in Mogadishu, as well as on the border of Northern Kenya and Ethiopia.
The aim of this project is to provide humanitarian
relief to people affected by the severe drought and malnutrition occurring in the countries of eastern Horn of
An estimated 10 million people in Djibouti, Somalia,
Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and Sudan are at risk of starvation.
Let us all make our QURBAN this year more

true believers is that they feed the poor for the Love & Pleasure of Allah Alone” (Quran
OUR VARIOUS QURBAN/AQIQAH PACKAGES FOR 2012 :
1. CANNED QURBAN
We see the canning of Qurban as the most viable alternative in poor, drought-stricken and war-torn places that are
lacking infrastructure such as electricity.
Canned meat provides longer 'shelf life' (up to 3 years) allowing the poor and destitute to sustain their families
for a longer period in times of calamity and trial. It is a premium product that is also easily mixed in with
Why Canned Qurban Meat ?What are the benefits ?
Meat is pre-cooked and ready to eat
Cans have a shelf life of 3 years, hence animal protein can be supplied
Canning is hygienic
No meat is wasted
Cans are easy to transport to areas of conflict and to remote areaes
without need of refrigeration, e.g. desert, mountains, flood affected areas
Cans can be distributed in areas where livestock is not
Distribution of meat can easily be managed in disaster affected areas -
e.g. flood, earthquake, famine etc.
The animals are purchased in bulk and slaughtered according to Shariah principal.. Sheep
carcasses are then deboned. All meat including primal cuts is packed and transported to canning manufacturers
for cooking and canning. Cans are then transported to countries of charity’s choice such as Palestine, Jordan,
Pakistan, Lebanon, Somalia, Kenya and Iraq. Meat would then be exported as canned or frozen.

2. LIVE QURBAN SLAUGHTER IN SOMALIA :
According to the UN, as many as 750,000
people could die as Somalia's drought worsens in the coming months, declaring a state of famine in the
The UN says tens of thousands of people
have died after what is said to be East Africa's worst drought for 60 years.
In total, 4 million people are in crisis in
Somalia, with 750,000 people at risk of death in the coming four months in the absence of adequate response,"
the UN's Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU) says.Half of those who have already died are
children, it says.
In view of this, BAPA in collaboration with the Somali Students Association Of
Malaysia, is arranging for live qurban to be slaughtered in Somalia itself. The meat will then be
immediately distributed to those in desperate need - especially the children and orphans, insya-Allah.
Let us all endeavour to make our
qurban this year more meaningful and the meat reaches to the really needy, insya-Allah.

from poor families and only get to taste fresh meat once or twice a year as the cost of meat is just too expensive
for them to buy. During the qurban period we will also be distributing food and rice parcels to the poorest Muslim
community there as the prices of basic food necessities have also gone up.

Due to the new regulations set by the Australia & AVA, we foresee

able to carry out the qurban rites due to the stringent requirements set by AVA.
As such, BAPA together with its partners is
offering for the 1st time here in Singapore this Fresh/Chilled qurban option to the Muslim community
With this option, the Muslim community here will
still be able to do their qurban and still get their qurban meat – for their own consumption or
