Thousands of animals sacrificed as part of the upcoming Qurban Bayram (Feast of the Sacrifice), also known as Eid al-Adha, celebrations will be donated to needy families in 130 countries, according to a senior official at the Presidency of Religious Affairs (DİB).
The foundation, which is one of the country's largest charities, is leading a campaign for the feast and distributes the meat of sacrificed animals to families around the world.
Deputy President Abdurrahman Çetin said 225,000 animals would be sacrificed during bayram.
"Some 125,000 of the 225,000 sacrificial animals will be slaughtered abroad and distributed to needy people in 130 countries," Çetin said.
He said the remaining 100,000 animals would be sacrificed at home and distributed to thousands of people across Turkey, especially in the regions where Syrian refugees live.
According to the foundation, those who want to take part in the campaign can pay TL 500 ($169) abroad, and TL 690 Turkish liras to take part in the domestic campaign.
