Eid al-Adha, also known as the Feast of Sacrifice, holds significant cultural and religious importance for Muslims worldwide. The celebration brings communities together to share blessings and express gratitude through acts of charity and generosity. It is understanding the significance of this occasion that OctaFX decided to reach out to those in need and make a positive impact on their lives.
In Malaysia, OctaFX and its local partner Azeehan distributed the Qurbani meat of two cows in Kelantan. Azeehan and members of the local communities expressed their gratitude to OctaFX for sponsoring this charitable initiative and encouraging people in need during Eid al-Adha.
In Indonesia, OctaFX continues its partnership with IDEP, which initially started as a joint project to provide aid to earthquake victims in West Java, Indonesia. The consequences of the November 2022 earthquake are still felt in the Cianjur district, and OctaFX is currently sponsoring the recovery phase of a multi-level support initiative. As part of it, the organisations distributed food packages and essential items to individuals and families, ensuring that they could partake in the festivities of Eid al-Adha without worrying about basic necessities.
In Nigeria, the international broker and Keeping It Real (KIR) Foundation launched an ‘Eid al-Adha Food Drive’ project, organising food distribution drives in Lagos, Argungu, and Port Harcourt.
