The Social & Welfare Committee has selected Somalia and Yemen for Udhiyah/Qurbani this year to be done through Islamic Relief.

The cost is $100 per goat. Somalia & Yemen were selected based upon the information provided by Islamic Relief. In these two countries many millions of fellow Muslims are facing chronic food shortages and some of whom are on the brink of starvation.

The money collection will begin on Friday August 10, and the deadline to pay for Udhiyah/Qurbani through IAR is August 19 2018.

If you would like to get Udhiyah done through IAR you can purchase Udhiyah/Qurbani ticket(s) and pay the required amount in the Lobby or upstairs or at Social & Welfare Committee Office.
