ACTNews, PALESTINA — Oday Sobhi Jaballah is one of the Palestinians who lives in camp Jabalia. He is has a mobility impairment after his left leg was shot by the Israeli army. He is unable to walk normally.
Because of his conditions, he has been unable to work to support his wife and two children. They live in deprivation. He also requires medical expenses and care. However, his family’s weak economy makes him need a lot of help from generous people.
Oday Sobhi needed approximately IDR 4.17 million per month for food, hygiene kits, medicines, school supplies, transportation, electricity bills, and clean water.
Aksi Cepat Tanggap has campaigned for the Sister Family Palestine-Indonesia to support Oday Sobhi’s family. This program aims to bridge Indonesia and Palestinian families in need.
Sister Family Palestine-Indonesia was launched last February. Andi Noor Faradiba from Global Humanity Response-ACT explained that, currently, dozens of Indonesian benefactors had participated in financing Palestinian families in need. Some of the benefactors did not only help one family but up to five families at a time. This assistance will be given directly to the Palestinian family.
“We appreciate all benefactors who want to help. Many families in Palestine need our help,” said Faradiba. She added that Indonesian benefactors who were interested in this program would be given profiles of Palestinian families in need so that the benefactors could see their situation first. The more Indonesian families help, the more underprivileged Palestinian families would be lifted out of poverty.
