ACTNews, GAZA – The generosity of Indonesian people was once again manifested in the form of the provision of business capital assistance for farmers in East Jabalia, Gaza. For this initial stage, two farmers, Ata Nabhan and Atef Alhajj, have received business capital last March.
Said Mukaffiy of Global Humanity Response - ACT explained that the assistance was given in the form of seeds. Ata Nabhhan received 40 olive seeds while Atef Alhajj received 40 olive seeds, 200 grams of cucumber seeds, and 200 grams of pumpkin seeds.
"They have land near the border. We hope that this business assistance can help strengthen the spirit of Palestinian farmers in facing Israeli aggression which has destroyed their crops,” hoped Said.
Said added that the assistance for farmers will not stop there. They will also be given support throughout their cultivation of the crops. The olives take four years before they can be harvested and processed into oil.
"If the number of benefactors grow, Insha Allah, the agricultural waqf program will further strengthen Palestinian community socially and economically. Therefore, we hope for the support of the Indonesian waqifs (endowers)," concluded Said.
