BANDUNG. The unstoppable attacks of Zionist Israel toward Palestinian during the Ramadhan have made many Palestinian children losing their parents. There are 23.000 orphans in Palestine that need educational assistance. Therefore, RZ attempts to help them by initiating a program named “Send Palestinian Children Smile Back”, Thursday (24/7).
“Losing parents doesn’t mean that losing qualified life opportunity too. The quality of life can be obtained through qualified education,” Nur Efendi, RZ CEO, said.
This program is a scholarship program given to the orphans for continuing the study. The scholarship is given for the orphans in all level of education; elementary students to university students.
“Israel modern colonialism doesn’t only take people’s life but it also destroys Palestinian economy. Thus, RZ will try hard to save Palestine next generation. In 2012, RZ had distributed food, economic assistance, and re-constructed mosques. This time, RZ try to provide education scholarship for Palestinian in order to help them save their land,” Efendi said.
RZ aims to help them as many as possible based on the amount of donation collected. “We’ll see people support regarding to this program. More donations more children will be assisted to study,” Heni Widiastuti, RZ Chief Program Officer, said.***
