Indonesia’s Generosity Helps Rebuild Hasan’s House After Destroyed by Military Aggression

After his house was destroyed by Israel’s military aggression last May, Hasan Asskeik can now breathe the sigh of relief after his house in Gaza’s Al-Remal area was rebuilt thanks to the support from Indonesian donors through Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT). In addition, ACT also provided pieces of furniture for the new house.

ACTNews, GAZA – May 2021 was a moment that was difficult to forget for Hasan Abdurrahim Muhammad Asskeik. During the escalation of the military attack carried out by Israel, his house in Gaza’s Al-Remal area was reduced to ruins.

"All parts of my house were shattered, from the windows and the window panes, the door, the toilet, to the kitchen. My children’s room was also destroyed, including its balcony. I’m afraid my children might fall down if they are not careful,” said Hasan.

To ease Hasan's burden, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) with the support of generous Indonesian donors began the reconstruction of his house on August 21. After the debris was cleared off the site, the walls that are prone to collapsing were torn down for the construction of new, sturdy walls.

Said Mukaffiy from ACT's Global Humanity Response explained that they also repaired his toilet, his floor tiles, and installed solar panels to provide electricity for Hasan’s family so that they won’t be affected by the electricity crisis caused by the blockade.

"Alhamdulillah, the renovation was finished in September," reported Said on Tuesday (9/28/2021). []
