As Eid-ul Adha celebrations came to an end, the Muslim Judicial Council (SA) in partnership with Hayrat Humanitarian Aid Association successfully concluded their Udhiyah/Qurbani Programme for 1438/2017 in the Western Cape, on Monday.

The Hayrat Humanitarian Foundation is a Turkish based relief organization established to assist with the needs of the Turkish and international community both spiritually and economically. The partnership between the organisations began in 2014 under the leadership of then MJC President, Moulana Ighsaan Hendricks.

This year, twenty-three bulls were purchased, slaughtered and the meat distributed to several underprivileged areas in the province including Porterville, Paarl, Chatsworth, Houtbay and Schaapkraal.
