Alhamdulillaaah with the Grace of Almighty Allah and the blessings of Holy Masoomeen AS, the sacrificial hide collection project 2014 concluded very well, exceeding the forecasted targets. Hides worth Rs 5,110,750.00 were collected from different cities.
This year hides were collected in three cities of Pakistan and statistics of collected hides this year are mentioned below:
Skin ---- Skin Count
Cow ----- 1003
Goat ---- 2506
Sheep --- 163
Camel --- 3
Total Amount = Rs 5,110,750.00
These skin are collected in three cities of Pakistan namely Karachi, Lahore and Sailkot.
Central Committee Shaheed Foundation Pakistan thanks Millat-e-Jaffaria Pakistan for its overwhelming support in this project like yesteryears, especially those sincere momineen who even risked their well being for donating the hides for the right cause in some troubled parts of the country. Alhamdulillaah the hide count overall was better from previous year.
Alhamdulillaah momineen appreciated the principles and precedent set by SFP in this domain as well, as Seerat-e-Masoomeen [AS] remained the prime focus in all the welfare work done, to the best of ability.
Light For Life, the welfare organization working under the management of Shaheed Foundation Pakistan, is expected and envisioned to have a very broad based welfare work in the Pakistani society. Among LFL's core focuses, uplift of general momineen and creating opportunities are being accorded much priority.
On a very fundamental level of human needs, Alhamdulillaah already, it has a very immaculate system to distribute goat and cow meat to deserving families on daily basis at their home. These are normally white collared families from salaried class / daily wagers / middle class who often can not afford it.
On the eve of Eid-e-Qurban, LFL also established camps along side sacrificial hides collection camps. LFL collected sacrificial meat for the families of general momineen and other deserving Pakistanis.
Alhamdulillaah according to very modest estimates nearly 19,000 Kilograms was collected and distributed in 6,500 families of deserving in Karachi on the occassion of Eid-ul-Adhaa.
Bakra Mandi for children of Martyrs:
Shaheed Foundation Pakistan is currently supporting 1736 families of Shohada-e-Millat-e-Jaffaria across 61 cities of Pakistan with Rs.18,173,294.00 monthly.
Alhamdulillaah keeping in mind the aspect of healthy entertainment that comes with spiritual training for children, Shaheed Foundation Pakistan has arranged like yesteryears Bakra Mandi for Atfaal-e-Shohada in various cities of Pakistan.
The purpose is to remove any sense of deprivation in our children and to bring smile to the faces of children of the benefactors of Millat-e-Jaffaria Pakistan, so as to become a source of pleasure and bring joy to the distressed heart of the last luminary of Almighty Allaah Hazrat-e-Baqiyatullaah (a.t.f.s), as these children of Shohada are among the supreme responsibilities of Imam-e-Zamana(a.t.f.s.) in the light of sunnat of Holy Masoomeen (Alaihimusalaam)
This year also, Shaheed Foundation Pakistan organized Bakra Mandi in different cities of Pakistan and martyrs children are invited to come in the camp. On camp day Children come to the camps along with their working members, move around and choose the sacrificial animal of their liking for themselves. The animal is thus reserved for them as a gift and they take it back home happily.
It serves a multiple purposes. On one hand it gives them awareness of religious duty on Eid-ul-Azha. It also teaches them philosophy of sacrifice. It averts any sense of deprivation that might be produced as a result of seeing other children of their age, who visit with parents and elders to get a sacrificial animal.
Besides its a healthy activity and the joy of the children can really be witnessed and felt, as the young angels are all smiles on getting their 'Goats'.

Bakra Mandi (General Public):
Alhamdulillah for Some years Shaheed Foundation Pakistan had begun working very effectively for the welfare of General momineen and deserving families as well, other than Khanwada-e-Shohada. The step was prompted by increasing public demand to pay attention towards general momineen's welfare as well besides Shohada and to make a useful contribution.
Alhamdulillaah, since Shaheed Foundation Pakistan already had an established team country wide and strong know how of social dynamics of welfare work, the step was significantly successful. Consequently the first foundations of general welfare work on semi-formal basis under the umbrella of Shaheed Foundation Pakistan were laid when SFP participated in rescue and relief activities post october earth quake in 2005 and floods in upper areas.
Later on, on the eve of various sanehat very valuable and timely services were initiated assessing the need of the hour carefully and strongly keeping in mind to attend to 'un-attended issues' alone.
This year, Shaheed Foundation Pakistan organized Bakra Mandi for general public where people of can come and purchase cow or goat from bakra mandi. It was organized where public from every part of city can reach easily. Concept of Bakra mandi was appreciated by public and they have purchased cow and goats for Eid-ul-Azha. The response from public was overwellming.
This year, Shaheed Foundation Pakistan organized Ijtamai Qurbani for general public where people of can come and book their part in qurbani. It was organized where public from every part of city can reach easily. It was appreciated by public, the response from public was overwellming.
Shaheed Foundation Pakistan would also like to thank all SFP volunteers participating in the project, Inshaallaah the amount generated will be used to cater for budgetary requirements for Shohada families. SFP is currently serving 1764 Families of Shohada-e-Millat-e-Jaffaria Pakistan in 61 cities across the country with a monthly budget of Appox Rs. 16,313,100.00.
Needless to mention that all this has been made possible by the most special blessings of Allaah SWT, particularly in the form of great confidence that the Millat-e-Jaffaria Pakistan reposes in the efforts of Shaheed Foundation Pakistan.
May Allaah increase the taufeeqat of all and strengthen our millat's resolve towards the noble cause of Shohada-e-Millat-e-Jaffaria Pakistan.
