Vows and Redemptions
Vows and Redemptions
Muslims slaughter sheep or buffalos throughout the year for reasons such as having a new baby, buying a new asset (a car, a new home, etc.) or for pure charity to help the less privileged. However, slaughtering for the purpose of distribution is not an easy task.
The main issues commonly faced are the following:
- How will the slaughtering processes take place?
- Where will it take place?
- To whom shall this meat be distributed?
- Are they really worthy or not?
- How can the underprivileged cases residing in other governorates be reached?
The EFB has found the solution to all the latter questions through their Vows and Redemption Program, through which donors can authorize the EFB to slaughter, pack and distribute the sheep or buffalo meat to the underprivileged cases that are most in need anytime of the year.
The donor solely has to donate the necessary money for the sheep or buffalo to the EFB, which in turn allows the EFB to handle the rest of the process on their behalf. In addition, if the donor wishes to receive a share of the meat, they must inform the EFB and their share will be packaged securely and delivered to them.
The Vows and Redemption is distributed on the underprivileged cases in one of the following ways according to the donor’s choice:
1. Frozen Meat:
Where the slaughtering takes place and the meat is distributed immediately to the cases packed and frozen.
2. Canned Meat:
This takes place only with the slaughtering of a buffalo, where the whole meat is canned with vegetables to be distributed to the needy throughout the year.
