MEC (Mahmud Es’ad Cosan) Foundation is an independent, Australian charitable organisation of international calibre. It was formed to ensure the non-discriminatory philosophy and ideals of love, compassion, helpfulness and legacy of the great intellect, scholar, visionary humanitarian, philosopher, social justice activist and spiritual leader, Professor Dr. Mahmud Es’ad.
The slaughtering process is conducted with the control of a veterinarian, in a sterile space, with professional butchers. The meats are stored in refrigerated storage rooms and are distributed in packages.
We distribute the Qurbans to those in real need through the awareness of the worship and the efforts of our volunteers.
We see those in real need as those who have rights over Qurbani and identify those in need, specifically in the areas of distribution, with help from local caretakers (community members).
The Qurbans are distributed to those in real need through pre-organized coupons distributed to those in real need. We pass on the Qurbans to those in need with respect and by saying “This is a gift from the Muslims of the world!”
MEC Foundation was established following the passing of the great intellect, scholar and spiritual leader, Professor Dr. Mahmud Es’ad Cosan in Australia. Since 2006, with the help of volunteers, MEC Foundation has been arranging and continuing its Qurban organisation.
MEC Lifestyle Project – was founded in 2014 and inspired by the life and personal practices described by the late Mahmud Es’ad Coşan Hocaefendi as the ideal lifestyle in today’s and tomorrow’s world. The goal of the MEC Lifestyle Project is to raise generations that live a morally clean life, shining like stars and emitting love and happiness from their souls, with the intent of removing the vices their soul’s desire, transcending the limits of their self, and therefore maximising the benefit towards their fellow kind.
