ACTNews, JABALIA - Who would have thought that, even though they never met, a number of Indonesian philanthropists have been connected with impoverished families in Gaza. The generosity of the Indonesian people is immediately felt by families in Gaza in the form of living expenses. This program is what Aksi Cepat Tanggap’s Sister Family Palestine-Indonesia (SFPI) is aiming for.

The first implementation of the SFPI program was carried out on Thursday (2/11/2021) in Jabalia City, North Gaza. A total of 130 people benefitted from this program.

Said Mukaffiy from ACT’s Global Humanity Response explained that SFPI program is ACT's breakthrough and initiative in building the life of the Gazans. The beneficiaries were very happy and grateful for the implementation of this program.

"Through this financial assistance, they can buy food and water. Beneficiary families also really hope that the assistance will continue. May this generosity continue,” added Said.

ACT collected the profiles of impoverished families in Gaza who are in debt, the victims of war, and so on. These profiles are then recommended to Indonesian family donors who support the lives of underprivileged Palestinian families for 6 months or even one year. []
