RCA to distribute 8,000 school bags to needy children in Libya
RCA to distribute 8,000 school bags to needy children across Libya
Great effort by the Red Crescent Authority. I would like to know how we can contribute towards this. We children in UAE change bags every year and we don't realise what a waste it is. The trend in the schools here is that even if your bag is in perfect condition you need to get a new one, otherwise your 'friends' brand you as being very poor and not worthy of being their friend. I hope we are given more opportunities to understand the plight of the underpriviledged so that we thank God for whatever we have and value the efforts of our parents.
