Rissalah College is deeply saddened by the recent events that have unfolded in Palestine. Many families in Gaza have lost their loved ones, are significantly injured or are without food, shelter, clothing, and water. This has impacted our community and as such, the College has partnered with AusRelief and will be holding a charity fundraiser.
Rissalah College asks our families to show support towards Palestinian refugees in Gaza, through generous donations. Families can make their contributions between, Monday, 17th – Thursday, 20th May 2021, by handing in their donations to the office, sending money in an envelope with their child or transferring funds through this link.
AusRelief contributes significantly to families and communities that are struggling around the world. Your donations towards this cause will assist with:
· Purchasing 1 fully equipped ambulance vehicle for the Palestinian Red Crescent as many vehicles have been destroyed and they are struggling to keep up with emergency medical treatment in Gaza. Inshallah as we fundraise more, we will be able to purchase more of these.
· Supporting other areas of medical care including the purchase of urgent medication/supplies for local clinics & the funding of emergency surgeries.
· Emergency relief to those who have lost their homes including
o Temporary shelter, mattresses/blankets
o Clean water
o Food packs
Rissalah College is working diligently to raise awareness of the heartbreaking situation, we will be holding a #FREEPALESTINE day on Friday, 21st of May 2021. We would like all students to dress in Palestinian colours, red, black, white, and green and bring a gold coin donation, that will also be donated towards this cause. As AusRelief will be visiting our school on Friday to collect the money our families have donated, we will also hold a special assembly dedicated to Palestine.
Rissalah College is excited to see our Muslim community come together and donate funds to assist with the crisis that our fellow brothers and sisters are facing in Palestine.
