BEIRUT, LEBANON July 15, 2022 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian nonprofit, recently distributed fresh meat for 4,360 meals to families caring for orphans in Lebanon as part of the Islamic season of Udhiyah earlier this week.
Approximately 1,014 families living in Sidon, Tyre, Arsal and the Bekaa Valley were given fresh meat from locally-sourced and humanely-slaughtered sheep or cows. Recipients included refugees and 144 families and caretakers of 212 orphans sponsored by Baitulmaal donors.
In many Muslim-majority countries, fresh meat is often procured through charitable gifts on occasions like the Udhiyah, a practice that commemorates Prophet Abraham’s sacrifice and takes place during the Hajj pilgrimage. This year, Baitulmaal distributed fresh meat for approximately 160,000 meals to beneficiaries in various poverty-stricken and conflict ridden areas of the world.
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.

Baitulmaal is an international humanitarian aid organization that provides life-saving, life-sustaining and life-enriching aid to people in need around the world. With headquarters in Texas, the charity has domestic offices and representatives in California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan and New Jersey as well as international offices in Africa, South Asia and the Middle East.
