People around the world have been under quarantine for the last 3 months but Gaza has been under movement control for the last 13 years. The Israeli blockade since 2007 has severely impacted the economy and now 86% of families rely on aid.
During the time of Covid-19 when masjids and Quran learning centres have closed, the lives of students and teachers at Dar AlQuran in Gaza has been impacted further.
Many teachers have become impoverished so we started a program to pay their salaries and online classes have started so students can continue to memorize the Quran.
We are raising USD10,000 to pay teachers salaries. Each teacher is being paid US$100 per month; able to teach more than 10 students per month.
Al Fitrah Foundation (based in Kuala Lumpur) has been supporting the Quran classes for many years, especially the memorization Quran classes for the blind students. Al Fitrah Foundation has delivered 100 braille Qurans to Gaza too, paid for by donors in Malaysia and Singapore.
Viva Palestina Malaysia has also been coordinating partner with Al Fitrah Foundation for Gaza Quran summer camp project for blind students for 8 years.
