With the concern of the spread of Covid-19 and its’ impact on the financial condition of people in general, Kazi Raihanul Bari, Founder & CEO of Qurbani 360 with three of his friends – Farzand Ahmed, Golam Saqline&Shahrukh Iqbal decided to start their digital service venture to help people perform their sacrifice at ease.
The uniqueness of their service was how they tagged different individuals through their online venture to perform the mandatory sacrifice on a share basis.
They took the responsibility from purchasing the animal on behalf of their client, ensuring proper rearing of the animal, slaughtering according to Shariah, neatly packaging, and delivering the meat at their clients’ doorsteps.
All of this happened remotely through the digital medium as the motto of the venture was to ensure people staying in the safety of their homes while the Qurbani 360 team takes up all the responsibility of their sacrifices this Eid.
The organization also partnered with another social initiative, Mission Save Bangladesh, one of the largest social charity movement by Sheba.
XYZ, The Daily Star, and Shamakal initiated amidst the pandemic to help people in need. The partnership was to ensure proper distribution of the donate an able portion of meat that also includes the middle-class families who are badly hit financially by the pandemic, which is also part of the social service provided by Qurbani 360.
A one-stop platform for 360-degree service to ensure the client’s safety and sacrifice during Eid-Al-Adha as they can be described as.
Dr. RushaidaHaque, one of the many who availed the service from Qurbani 360 wrote, ‘While initially, I was hesitant about committing to an online process, Qurbani 360 won me over with their professionalism.
The order process was smooth and prompt while the communication went off without any problems. The meat was packed neatly and fresh meat of our sacrificed animal was delivered at our doorstep on EidDay by a very well behaved team.
I didn’t expect so much in such adverse conditions and can only imagine the work the team at Qurbani 360 would have done to ensure such service.
My heartfelt thanks to the tremendous effort of the team that we could give our Qurbani properly this year’.
Their concept revolutionized the cattle industry of the country and the way people perform their sacrifice.
