BANDUNG. RZ (Rumah Zakat) has successfully distributed food packages to 1.911 Palestinians in Gaza. The beneficiaries of this food aid were the victims of Zionist Israel indiscriminate attacks victims. The distribution was implemented on July 23-27, 2014, in Jabaliya City.
“Alhamdulillah, our volunteer in Palestine had successfully distributed staple foods to the Palestinian,” Heni Widiastuti, Chief Program Officer, said, Monday (4/8). Each food package given contains bread, rice, tea, sugar, olive oil, corn oil, beef, lentils, homos, sauce, jam, sweetener, and dates.
In addition to foods and medicines, RZ also collects scholarship assistance for orphans in Palestine through a program named “Kembalikan Senyum Anak Palestina”. “This program is provided for Palestinian orphans. The scholarship for elementary to high school level will be in Palestine whereas the university level will be in Indonesia,” Nur Efendi, RZ CEO, said.
“Losing parents doesn’t mean that losing qualified life opportunity too. The quality of life can be obtained through qualified education,” Efendi added.***
