GAZA, -- MP Dr. Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of the Popular Committee Against the Siege , has announced that three Turkish and Qatari institutions had given their preliminary approval to finance a project to rehabilitate the disabled in the Gaza Strip.
Khudari, in a press release on Tuesday, said that the project would be prepared within the few coming weeks, adding that the Qatari Red Crescent and the Fakhoura campaign to protect the Gaza students, launched by Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al Missned, and the Turkish doctors without borders were the sponsors of that project.
He said that the project would primarily target the disabled in the latest Israeli war on Gaza, adding that the project would attempt to help the disabled to find jobs and support them to live a normal life.
The project would include special programs for each type of disability, the lawmaker said, noting that the rate of disability was terribly growing in the Palestinian land especially in Gaza as a result of the Israeli aggression and the weak potentials to serve this "marginalized sector" of the society.
Khudari hoped that the project would develop into a specialized center serving and catering for the disabled.
