1/3 for the Poor

The meat of the sacrificed animal is split into three parts. One part is for the poor in the society, one for the relatives and friends and one for personal consumption.

A snap shot of the kids and some adults who gathered to receive their share.

  1. Even though I’m a strict vegetarian… I am very appreciative about giving meat to the poor! Excellent and something to deeply admire!!! 🙂

    Great B & W shot of the children and their patterned dresses.

    I’m a great believer in sharing what we have with the needy – giving a 1/3 of the meat sounds like a very worthwhile idea to me. Your religion has a lot to be admired.

      Thanks Vicki. The other 1/3 which is for relatives/friends is more important in my opinion. As most of them live above the poverty line, have a job or some means of earning but cannot afford to sacrifice an animal. So, we reach out to people near us and help…quietly.
