Kimse Yok Mu humanitarian aid organization, a Hizmet-initiative, distributed meat to more that 230,000 families in about 45 different countries during the recent Feast of Sacrifice celebrations. Feast of Sacrifice is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims to commemorate the willingness of Abraham to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God.

Each and every wealthy Muslim sacrifices and animal (goat, sheep) and distributes most of its meat to the needy. Below is the story of how the Kimse Yok Mu reached out to the poor in many countries as part of Feast of Sacrifice (Eid al-Adha in Arabic, Kurban in Turkish). Feast of Sacrifice is celebrated annually on the 10th day of the 12th and the last month of the lunar Islamic calendar. Feast of Sacrifice celebrations start after the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia by Muslims worldwide. The date is approximately 70 days (2 Months & 10 days) after the end of the month of Ramadan.
