Welcoming Eid Al-Adha 1443 H, the National Board of Zakat (BAZNAS) again held the Kurban Online BAZNAS, in order to facilitate for people to make Qurban during Eid Al-Adha. For this year, BAZNAS brings the theme “Kurban Online BAZNAS: Menjangkau Ujung Negeri”.

As in previous years, having Qurban through BAZNAS can be done easily and comfortably without having to leave the house. With a mobile phone or computer device, people can make Qurban and it can be done anywhere, by accessing baznas.go.id/kurban and following the instructions provided easily.

"BAZNAS RI targets to collect 8,016 Qurban animals equivalent to sheep and goats. This target is up 50 percent from the previous year. The animals are purchased directly from BAZNAS fostered breeders from various BAZNAS livestock centers, " said the Commissioner of BAZNAS RI, Saidah Sakwan, in Jakarta, Monday (6/6). Saidah explained that the Qurban animals were not only purchased directly from BAZNAS fostered breeders, but also distributed in villages so the community would be more economically empowered and fulfill their nutritional needs from the distributed meat.

In the 2022 BAZNAS Online Qurban, BAZNAS will also expand the meat distribution area. If the previous year it was distributed to 28 provinces and 2 countries, then for this year, it will be distributed to 34 provinces and 2 countries (Palestine and Syria). BAZNAS also prepares processed meat packaged in cans, to facilitate the distribution process on the upcoming Eid al-Adha. This packaging is an alternative way to reach more distribution area, because canned meat can be sent to 3T areas that are difficult to reach or isolated locations caused by natural disasters.

In order to support this program, the Directorate of Research and Development of BAZNAS RI is preparing a study related to the Economic of Qurban. The study will elaborate the economic potential from Qurban in the post-pandemic recovery period and the distribution of Qurban animals in order to evenly distribute meat consumption through an effective supply chain.

BAZNAS also concerns about the animals’ health condition especially in the midst of the spread of foot and mouth disease (PMK). To anticipate this, BAZNAS has carried out various mitigation and prevention efforts throughout the Livestock Center. These steps are consist of limiting people who enter the livestock hall's stables; spraying disinfectants regularly in cages and various work equipment; and providing feed and vitamin drugs  to increase livestock immunity. After carrying out these anticipatory steps, BAZNAS's Qurban Livestock are declared free of PMK disease, with the existence of an Animal Health Certificate (SKKH).
