LAHORE: The Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust has launched its Online Qurbani Campaign for 2021. The service is available for all Muslims around the World. During the ongoing pandemic, the Online Qurbani Service presents an excellent opportunity for the public on this Eid-ul-Azha to stay safe by opting a hassle-free, safe, healthy and economical mode of performing this religious obligation. The slaughter-houses are carefully selected that provide healthy goats and cows. It is ensured that the slaughtering services are rendered in accordance with the Islamic injunctions and within the stipulated time of performing Qurbani for Muslims residing in Pakistan and abroad.
The Shaukat Khanum Online Qurbani Service gives the public an opportunity to share the joy of Eid with those who cannot afford it. Meat from Qurbani will be distributed amongst the needy in different parts of the country while all proceeds from the sale of animal hides will be utilized to support the treatment of needy cancer patients at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centres located in Lahore and in Peshawar. Each Year, over 75% of all cancer patients receive free of charge comprehensive treatment at the facilities of SKMT.
The Qurbani orders can be placed through www.shaukatkhanum.org.pk or by depositing cash or cheque at the Hospitals, local and overseas Regional Offices or Laboratory Collection Centres of the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust. Photos of the Qurbani process, from selection of animals to meat distribution, will be communicated to the public through social media.
