Muslim Aid Vice Chairman, Dr Suhaib Hasan visits Indonesia
Muslim Aid Vice Chairman, Dr Suhaib Hasan visited the Indonesia Field Office in August 2012 during the holy month of Ramadan. He joined an iftar event organised for orphan and needy children by Muslim Aid and distributed Ramadan food packages to the beneficiaries. He later visited Muslim Aid Indonesia’s Aceh Economic Development Financing Facility (AEDFF) in the Bireuen District.
Commenting on the achievements of Muslim Aid Indonesia, Dr Suhaib said, “I had heard about this project, but I never realised how big it is, how fine it is until I visited the place myself. I was very much impressed by the magnificent work that has been done by Muslim Aid in disaster risk reduction by this flood mitigation project.”
During his visit, Dr Suhaib also went to see the Pump House station in Lampaseh, Banda Aceh, which is part of the flood mitigation project funded by the World Bank Multi Donor Fund for Water & Sanitation in Aceh Besar along with Muslim Aid’s housing projects for the tsunami victims which has been funded by Oxfam and the Asian Development Bank.
