REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA — PKPU Human Initiative and Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) distributed 1.485 school kit packages for orphans in Aceh. The school equipment packages consisted of bag, stationery and shoes. This aid was given to orphans in Banda Aceh, Aceh Besar and Sabang.
It started with the symbolic handing over of the school kit by OIC Director Mughni Affan and program coordinator Malikul Saleh at PKPU Aceh office, Wednesday (1/2). Program coordinator Malikul Saleh hoped the school kit packages distribution could ease the burden of parents in providing the school needs for their children.
“I hope it can be beneficial and used well, giving more spirit to study to the children and reach their dreams,” he stated.
This is a regular program from PKPU Orphan Kafala Program (OKP) Division in cooperation with OIC. It aims to help ease the burden of orphans’ guardians in education.
In addition, the orphans get scholarship every month until they graduate from the senior high school. Thus, they can get a proper education like the other children who still have parents.
