Saada Family Fund Update
December 3, 2001
Reminder: On July 17, 2001 Isaaq
Saada, a Palestinian teacher, 51 years old, father of 10, and an activist
in IPCRI’s Peace Education Program was killed by an Israeli Missile that
had targeted his brother. His
brother was also killed. Isaaq was involved with IPCRI’s Peace Education
Program for 5 years.
The Saada Family Fund: IPCRI decided to launch a fund in support of Isaaq’s
family. So far, 206 people have contributed more than $25,800 to the fund.
We also discovered that Isaaq’s 11 year old daughter Sukaina was
paralyzed from waist down from birth and did not have a wheel chair. IPCRI contacted Kibbutz Tzora where they manufacture wheel
chairs for specific needs. The manager of the factory, Philip Solomon met
Sukaina in IPCRI’s office. The
kibbutz decided to contribute an electronic wheel chair to Sukaina.
IPCRI has established a special bank
account for the family. Each
month the family receives an allotment of the money.
The Saada Family published an advert in
Al-Quds newspaper thanking IPCRI for its efforts.
We would like to thank all of the 206
people who contributed to the family’s welfare and to urge others to
make a contribution.
