Maintaining its tradition and belief in supporting the local community, Basra Gateway Terminal (BGT) celebrated Eid Al-Adha by sharing meat with families in Umm Qasr.

Also known as the Feast of Sacrifice, Eid Al-Adha is an Islamic holiday celebrated by offering an animal–usually lamb–and sharing of meat.  Unfortunately, the continuing increase in COVID-19 cases in Iraq has negatively affected the economy and made meat a rare luxury for a lot of families.  

The packets of meat were prepared with the utmost safety and care to safeguard the health of the recipients.
