About 140,000 people in West Africa will benefit from Qatari supply of sacrificial animals during Eid Al Adha.

The beneficiaries are from countries, including Gambia, Mauritania, Guinea Conakry, Guinea Bissau, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Liberia.

Sheikh Hammad Abdul Ghader, General Manager, Islamic Da’wa Organisation (IDO) office in Qatar, said: “West African countries are considered among the poorest in the world and their people need help, especially during Eid days.”

IDO will make sure that sacrificial animals reach poor, orphans and refugee families, depending on the experience of its mission which has been in the field for over a quarter of a century. It stressed the need to increase the number of sacrificial animals due to a high demand because of reasons, including wars and natural disasters.
