Salam Groovy Japan provided Japanese Halal food for Eid celebrations again this year.
Looking back, the pandemic struck shortly after Salam Groovy Japan was launched. For the past 2 Eid celebrations, we couldn’t directly distribute the food due to the State of Emergency Declaration and the mandatory measures taken to prevent the infection outbreak.
・Salam Groovy Japan gifted halal Hida beef for Ramadan (Iftar in 2020)
・Eid gift for Muslims at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies (Eid2021)
・Halal Japanese food to Muslim in Osaka for Eid (Eid2021)
・Donation of crowdfunded food aid complete
・Donation to Otsuka Masjid, Japan Islamic Trust
・Food donation to Indonesian interns at Matsuyama Kozai
So this year’s Eid is our first time to hand out the goods directly to the Muslim residents.
Nearly 600 food items altogether were purchased with the cooperation of 6 food manufacturers. The food was shipped to a masjid and a Dawah centre in Tokyo and Osaka.
Despite the unexpected turnaround in the Eid schedule, our staff visited each of the facilities to interact and celebrate together with the Muslims!
