ACTNews, GAZA – ACT Palestine team carried out another Quran copy distribution. Through the action, over 2,000 copies of Quran were distributed to orphans and hafiz (Quran memorizers) in Gaza.
Firdaus Guritno from ACT’s Global Humanity Response explained that the volunteers distributed the Quran copies from mosque to mosque. Each mosque received up to 200 copies of Quran.
Firdaus continued that the distribution was carried out almost to every mosque in northern and southern Gaza including Abu Khadar Mosque, Agung Gaza Mosque, Mosab Bin Omair Mosque, Saleem Abu Musalam Mosque, Al Eman di Beit Lahia Mosque, and Omar Bin Al-Khattab Mosque in Jabalia, also Mohammed Al-Qasmi Mosque, Al-Noor Mosque and Old Balad Mosque in Deir Al Balah, Masjid Olo Al Azim di Beit Hanoun, dan Masjid Bsaiso in Al Shijaya.

Furthermore, according to Firdaus, the assistance was targeted to Quran memorizer children. “The children enthusiastically got in line to receive the best quality Quran copies,” Firdaus explain, Thursday (12/2/2021).
Most of the Gazan children come from impoverished families who are affected by prolonged Israel’s attacks and colonization. They don’t have enough money to buy a proper Quran copy. “Let alone buying a Quran copy, many families in Gaza still hardly able to meet their daily food needs,” Firdaus said.
Firdaus hopes for the Quran copy distribution to be able to increase the children’s spirit in reciting and memorizing the Quran while implementing Islamic knowledge.
“It was not our first time providing Quran copies from the benefactors’ alms for Palestinian children. Insha Allah, along with the children’s Quran recital, the benefactors will also receive continuous rewards,” Firdaus concluded.
