ALEPPO, SYRIA July 21, 2023 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian nonprofit, recently distributed fresh meat for 13,750 meals to impoverished families in Syria as part of the Islamic season of Udhiyah.
Approximately 2,750 families living in Aleppo, Idlib, and Tal Abyad were given fresh meat from locally-sourced and humanely-slaughtered sheep.
The beneficiaries included women-headed households, low-income families, and elderly people, according to Elizabeth Sohail, program development manager at Baitulmaal.
“Syrian people have endured many hardships due to internal conflicts,” said Sohail. “Our donors were able to help them celebrate Eid with fresh meat.”
According to UNICEF, more than 6.5 million Syrian children are in need of assistance, many of these include orphans.
In addition to seasonal Islamic giving programs, Baitulmaal coordinates emergency aid efforts, water, hygiene and sanitation projects, orphan support programs and other humanitarian aid to under-served populations regardless of faith or nationality.
