MUHAMMADIYAH.ID, JAKARTA – After successfully establishing a school for Palestinian refugees in Beirut, Lebanon on 6 November 2020, Muhammadiyah will build another school.
General Secretary of Muhammadiyah Abdul Mu’ti said the school establishment is aimed at reinforcing Muhammadiyah roles in international levels and distributing aid funds for Palestinians.
“We got information from the Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia to Lebanon Mr. Hajriyanto Y. Thohari there are more than 400,000 Palestinian refugees so that’s why we established the school in Lebanon,” Abdul Mu’ti mentioned in the online forum conducted by Universitas Muhammadiyah Gresik on Monday (2/8).
Muhammadiyah has also helped other nations such as Rohingya.
“Alhamdulillah, Muhammadiyah humanitarian actions are appreciated by international parties. For example, Muhammadiyah sent doctors to assist Rohingya refugees for a year and initiated the school establishment in Rakhina State Myanmar,” Mu’ti said.
Muhammadiyah also contributes to tackle the pandemic. It’s the implementation of the teachings of humanity mentioned on Al-Qur’an.
“It’s not easy to cope with the pandemic by ourselves because we’re also confronting similar difficulties. However, we may not be selfish and think about our own safety. We have to think other people’s safety,” Mu’ti said.
