Eid-ul-Adha, also known as the Greater Eid, is the most important festival in the Muslim calendar. Eid-ul-Adha is a festival of sacrifice. It amplifies the value of love for one another and teaches the value of sacrifice.
Muslims all around the world celebrates the day with lots of joy and happiness. But things are not same for everyone. The underprivileged people of the society starve on this precious day. They can not afford the celebration. They pass the day with sadness. But the well-off citizens of our society can help them. There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
To help the needy people and spread the happiness of Eid the North South University Social Services Club and NSU collaboratively took the initiative to distribute food and ingredients packages to the poor families. This was previously known as “Sponsoring An Eid”, now it is been called “Joy For Eid” as it spread Joy and happiness among people. NSUSSC has been organizing this great event for 6 years. The main purpose of the event is to spread joy and happiness among the underprivileged people.
Like every year, this year as well NSUSSC has organized the “Joy for Eid”. The committed warriors of NSUSSC have raised funds from various sources. To make the event successful, the promising and enthusiastic volunteers of NSUSSC went to the areas where the people under poverty line live and provided token to them. This helped us to distribute the goodie bags in a disciplined way. This year we distributed food and ingredients packages to around 500 poor families live around Kuril Bishshoroad slums. We also distributed packages to the blue collar employees of North South University. The packages were consisted of Rice, Oil, Sugar, Spices, Milk etc required to prepare a good meal. Besides, to support this virtuous initiative our Head of Student Affairs, Parisa Shakur came to visit the spot and also distributed goodie bags to the people. And there was media coverage for the event which helped us to raise the voice in support of the right of every people of society.
This initiative is for the needy people of our society. If we do not come forward then who would come. So with this noble vision to spread the happiness, NSUSSC is organizing the event every year. We hope that the happiness keeps spreading like this forever.
