Takaful Association speech

Takaful letter "Chairman of the Takaful Board of Directors Abdul Razzaq Al-Qarhani" His Excellency Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr. Khaled Qabbani, Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Muhammad Al Qasimi - wife of His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah. Honorable Brothers, Ambassadors of Good from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, the Emirates, Algeria, Yemen, Syria, Europe and Malaysia. Honorable Presidents and Members of Municipal and Optional Councils, Brothers, representatives of civil and social societies. Ladies and gentlemen. We welcome you the most beautiful welcome in your country and among your brothers. And we greet you with a greeting that people usually say. We say it as worship, because we feel its great meaning full of love, goodness and appreciation. May the peace of God be upon you, dear brothers, and the mercy of those who have blessings. Dear party, when I was alone with myself, I am looking for a picture or a scene that will be the starting point for my conversation with you about a human rights issue that concerns the future before the present. Tomorrow's children are concerned with children today. An issue that worries many countries, institutions and individuals. What more pictures can you see on TV. And what more tears, if they had gathered in one stream of water, would have turned into a river in which the mightiest waves would collide with heat, from the fires of pain and suffering. And more than all that, the pain scenes that could transform you into a erupting volcano erupt in anger and pain. Or it transforms you into a rocky mass that is not affected by the factors of nature. It is the same image, and the same old new scene, which overlooks its head from Palestine and from Lebanon and Iraq, and from everywhere you find yourself interested in watching what is going on in his space, and you live in the sky. They are scenes that look like episodes of a drama series. Produced by a Palestinian-Lebanese-Iraqi. Arab children turned to the oppressed hungry. Their power is tears and groans. For the most part, breakfast and dinner turned into luxuries. The essentials are crossed out. And if today we take the Palestinian child as a model in your conference. Because he is the biggest contributor to settling the bill for the survival of Palestinian society. And the continuation of his Arab identity. That big little class. The dreamy, hard-to-make reality. Emerging from the womb of occupation, suffering and uprising into a world of liberation, independence and advancement. The children of Palestine group, the children of the stones that surpassed its childhood and exceeded the peculiarities of its stage. And I made it into the men's category. Men made with their small hands rough the miracle of steadfastness. And they proved to the whole world that there is a strength in the stone that enables its bearer to face the most powerful war machines and tools of oppression, if the holder of this stone has a right that he is fighting to achieve. As we present in these lines the fact that the children of Palestine are the most among the groups and segments of the Palestinian people affected by the conditions of occupation, oppression and suffering. To ensure that we do not aim to generate feelings of kindness and compassion for them. Rather, we seek to sound the alarm and send a warning signal. Through it, we draw attention to the profound wounds that affected the formation of that child's personality and psychological system. We also warn that adequate efforts should be made to address it. And providing the reasons for sound growth corresponding to all aspects of this physical, mental, social and psychological environment. Dear brothers and sisters, from the womb of this suffering and deprivation. And from the darkness of oppression and tyranny, the symbiosis of childhood care was born in 2004. At the hands of a few workers in the humanitarian and charitable field. It raised the slogan of comprehensive care for an innocent childhood, facing and facing the eradication of its human rights. Especially her right to life and freedom. Takaful has defined its scope of work to cover the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. It also provides other services for children in Lebanon and in the refugee camps distributed in various Lebanese regions. Takaful has made it one of its goals to inculcate good principles and good morals in the child’s conscience. And improving the living and health conditions of children, especially orphans. It works to care for disabled and displaced children. In addition to educational, educational, legal and cultural care. And searching for the sources of creativity, nurturing and benefiting from it among children. What is the drawing competition (my rights in color) that was launched last month. Except a brick in this construction. What participation exceeded expectations, from all countries. Other evidence of deprivation and need. Dear brothers and sisters. We meet today and we all hope that our conference will be a flame that shines with its likes, the darkness of night is long. A good light for a promising day. Why not and we are all looking forward to your conference releasing it, in addition to studies and research. Some ideas that help us realize these rights for our young children. In conclusion, allow me to welcome you again and thank you for your contributions and participation in this conference. In your name and in the name of Takaful for Childhood Care, we extend our sincere thanks and great gratitude to Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Muhammad Al Qasimi, may God preserve her for her hugging and nurturing this conference. Also, I cannot conclude, without touching the fingerprints and the good and blessed signs that were and still are an attribute of a man who provided and continuously provides full support for solidarity in implementing its pastoral and development programs for the children of Lebanon. His Excellency the Minister of Education and Higher Education in Lebanon, Dr. Khaled Al-Kabbani. Thank you, gentlemen, for your kind attention. Peace, mercy and blessings of God.
