On the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Bulgaria, with funding from Humanity First Germany, provided meat to financially disadvantaged families and individuals across the country, especially in remote areas. For this purpose, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Bulgaria worked together with various municipalities, social centres, homeless shelters, and accommodations for children and adults. The meat was distributed for Eid celebrations from 28 to 30 June 2023. Alongside the meat, every single person received a card for Eid-ul-Adha with good wishes and special greetings.
After more than 5,000 cards were distributed, many people wrote and called us to thank us for our consideration and for, as they called it “an unforgettable gesture”. There were also people who were deeply moved, cried on the phone, and thanked us, saying that they were happy that there are still good people on earth like the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. Furthermore, various municipalities in the country thanked us with written letters of appreciation.
Municipalities in which the meat was distributed were Sandanski, Petrich, Gotse Delchev, Bansko, Razlog, Simitli, Pleven, Veliko Tarnovo, Razgrad, Haskovo, Stara Zagora, and Plovdiv.
Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahamdiyya Bulgaria also participated with small funds to donate meat, which was then distributed in the cities of Plovdiv and Sandanski.
