What would happen if Indonesian-American and Rohingya-American children were tied in a brotherhood gathering event? Surely, they would enjoy the event. Both the Indonesian and Rohingya children will attend the brotherhood gathering conducted by Dompet Dhuafa USA (DD USA) and Siti Chafsah Islamic Education Circle. Mrs. Chafsah is a muslimah religious leader who educates Indonesian children in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia regions.
Seventy Indonesian and Rohingya children were invited to attend the event, “The Land of Fraternity”. According to DD USA’s program director, Cut Zahara, the event will present art performances from both Indonesian and Rohingya children. Then a movie that tells about the struggle of Rohingya children refugees in the US will be screened. “Indonesian children will also give some school kits to Rohingya children,” said Cut.
Currently about forty Rohingya children get educational services from House of Learning-DD USA. In the House, they learn Islam and Arabic once a week. These educational services are a part of DD USA’s refugees support system.
