Fahimah Abdul Kadir Askar said, Palestine is a special place inhabited by extraordinary people. The Palestinian people are mentally steel and are currently in trouble so need help.

“But they did not ask because they believed that God's help would surely come. Their suffering is our call to help sustainably through various programs,” he said.

Fahimah also said that the donations collected are sourced from fundraising in all Al-Irsyad Women's Branch Managers throughout Indonesia and throughout Irsyadiyah. He thanked all parties who have supported this fundraiser and donated for the Palestinian people.

“Thank God, the funds raised are the result of donations from all Irshadiyah throughout the Motherland and also abroad who care and want to alleviate the suffering of brothers in Palestine,” he said.

Fahimah stressed that the donations collected over approximately 45 days mean a lot to the brothers in Palestine. The donations distributed are not just a sum of money but also an expression of love and solidarity for those Palestinians who need a helping hand.

In collecting donations, there are a number of ways that Al-Irsyad Women have done in rallying concern for the Palestinian people. Among them with great tabligh activities, cheap sembako bazar, long march, and others. The aim is to show concern for the Palestinian people especially in Gaza.

“Joining hands together, namely Laznas Al-Irsyad, Adara, MER-C, and the Aqsa Working Group, let us take this spirit of togetherness as a trigger to care for humanity, which is not only in this difficult moment but also throughout the journey of our lives. Without cooperation and care, this achievement will not be possible,” he said.
