Maranao women join Eid festivities

Maranao women cut slices of beef for distribution to relatives and evacuees affected by the recent war in Marawi during the Eid al-Adha or "Feast of Sacrifice" in Baloi, Lanao del Norte on Tuesday. 

During the commemoration of Eid al-Adha, an animal is sacrificed and divided into three parts: one third of the share is given to the poor and needy; another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors; and, the remaining third is retained by the family.
