On the occasion of the Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) celebrated on July 21st.
MUMBAI ANIMAL SAVE collaborated with Earthlings Cafe, a completely vegan cafe owned by Ethical Vegan and actor Sadaa Sayed, and distributed 500 packs of plant-based BIRYANI and HALWA at the orphanage in Mumbai. The food prepared by the Earthling Cafe, Andheri West, is made with plant-based meat and dairy substitutes. It does not contain any animal products and is rich in nutrients.
When asked about this cooperation and the notable way of celebrating this Eid, Sadaa replied:
“As an Ethical Vegan, I celebrate a meat-free Eid. This year, I am very happy to work with the Mumbai Animal Save to donate healthy plant-based biryani to hundreds of children at Mumbai’s orphanages prepared by my Earthlings Cafe!”
“Our mission is to prevent disease, improve global health and strengthen food justice,” said the organizers of the Mumbai Animal Save.
“The main purpose of this cooperation is not only to provide food for those in need, but also to show how to celebrate Eid more compassionately, shed some light on the plight and suffering of animals, and to stand up for food justice.
The Animal Save Movement believes that every being is entitled to a long and healthy life, which should not be at the expense of others. We want to inspire others, they can also donate food to share their happiness with others, and reject any form of violence. “
Mumbai Animal Save is a local chapter of an international organization called “Animal Save Movement”. It is a love-based global chapter network that defines itself through Tolstoy and Gandhi-style grassroots activism and social change methods. They believe in the ‘love for hate’ philosophy and that ending violence and oppression must be done with compassion and kindness for all.
They have more than 1,000 local chapters all over the world. They follow their mission to spread the belief that everyone has a moral responsibility to stand witness, end animal husbandry, and reforestation. During this pandemic, the Mumbai Animal Save chapter has been carrying out food drives throughout Mumbai.
In addition to the food drive, they also organized many activities and events throughout the city. “We are also carrying out outreach activities and food tastings in public places to promote the benefits of plant-based diets to the public, and that plant-based diets are not only vital to our health but also play an important role in climate change. We can see that there has been a rise in the number of people going vegan in India for ethical, environmental, and health reasons and we hope to see more of them getting active for the same” says a volunteer of Animal Save Movement India.
The organizers encourage people to watch “Dominion” on Youtube and connect with them on social media to join them.
