The Brussels government will provide the facilities and information in preparation for the December 20th Eid celebrations of Muslims in Belgium. Muslims will be able to slaughter sheep in a legal matter, and a multi-lingual brochure will be available with information for residents. Financial support will be given to the cities of Anderlecht, Brussels, Schaarbeck, and Sint-Jans-Mokenbeek, and provide for more than 500 sheep to be available to community members wishing to partake in this ritual of the Islamic holiday. The brochure will be available in French, Dutch, Arabic, and Turkish, and remind residents that home slaughter is forbidden, and to encourage use of the publicly made facilities.
