BEKASI. Sunday (31/5), RZ fielded dozens of volunteer, mentors, and Anak Juara, to collect the donation for Rohingya refugees in Aceh.
This action was implemented in Car Free Day Area, Bekasi, under the theme “#SenyumlahRohingya”. The lack of citizenship deprives Rohingyas of basic rights, including access to education, freedom of movement, land rights, the protection of their property and the right to marry freely.
The tensions between Buddhists and Rohingyas led to major violence in 2012 and 2013, when clashes left hundreds dead and forced 140,000 Royingya people to flee their homes.
“Alhamdulillah, we could collect up to 2.5 million rupiah this morning. Thank you for all donors who care about Rohingya refugees’ foredoom in Aceh. May Allah gives you better reward,” Soleh Juarsah, Branch Manager of RZ Bekasi, said. ***
