Palestinian Embassy in Dhaka shares ways to send financial support on its Facebook page
A week of Israeli air raids in the Gaza Strip has left over 200 Palestinians killed and rendered over 40,000 homeless.
Most harrowingly, it would seem to be children who are disproportionately affected - at least 58 of the dead are children.
While viral stories of children looking through rubble for a favourite toy, or left distraught by the thought of starting all over, or going back to save their pet goldfish in one instance, have undoubtedly tugged at people's hearts around the world.
Bangladesh has always stood firmly by the cause of Palestinian statehood.
And during the present flare up, many Bangladeshis have extended their hand of cooperation in their personal capacity as well.
Responding to a keen enthusiasm among the public to donate money that can go towards aiding Palestinians, the Palestinian Embassy in Dhaka has shared some mobile phone numbers on its official Facebook page for those willing to send financial support.
There is also a provision for those who would like to donate by cash to go to the embassy in Baridhara from 9am to 5pm on weekdays.
Against the backdrop of the ongoing military atrocities and crimes against humanity perpetrated by Israeli air and land forces on innocent Palestinians, the Palestine state is being reduced to rubbles, the Facebook post reads.
There was some confusion among netizens as to whether the Facebook page was genuine, since it is not verified.
Palestinian Ambassador Yousef SY Ramadan, however, confirmed to UNB that it is indeed their official Facebook page –https://www.facebook.com/palestinembassydhaka/.
"We will be posting extra information In-Shaa-Allah. So, you can follow the guidelines accordingly," the ambassador wrote in a WhatsApp message.
