Speaking to the media on the reason behind this noble gesture,
The Managing Director Mr Mehmet Akmermer explaining the reasons behind this noble gesture indicated that, it was in line with the principles governing Eid celebrations.
According to him, during Eid-al-adha, Muslims around the world show compassion and good neighborliness to all and sundry.
Mr. Mehmet also stated that festivals can only become real festivals when one shares their own joy, happiness and belongings with others. It is only then that the true meaning of sacrifice is felt as one sacrifices whatever he/she has with others.
Some of the recipients of the meat expressed their utmost gratitude to Galaxy for this kind gesture and encouraged the institution to continue to reach out to people during such celebrations and more.
They were happier that even during this Covid-19 era when most institutions are going through economic crunch, they still found it needful and thoughtful to perform this gesture.
The distribution of the meat was not only limited to Muslims but to all other religious bodies, orphanages, School for the deaf, dumb and blind, widows etc, in fact no one was left out.
