2019 Ramadan Berbagi / Ramadan to Share
Samarinda, 6/12/2019 - With the support of our community here in New England, ICONE has concluded the annual Ramadan Berbagi / Ramadan to Share program for this year. This program is one of ICONE's charity programs to give back to Indonesia that focuses on supporting education among children and youth in need in Indonesia.
This year, expanding our charity outreach outside Java, the donations with the amount of IDR 8,600,000 went to Panti Asuhan Aisyiah Siti Khadijah, an orphanage center located in Samarinda, East Kalimantan, Indonesia. Thanks to those who have contributed to the children of this orphanage center while also purchased the scrumptious selections of Indonesian cookies (kue kering) made by our favorite partner and friend "Z's Kitchen Indonesian Baked Goods". Special thank you as well to our local representative, Rahmida Fadhilah, who has delivered the donation to the orphanage despite the heavy flooding that has been paralyzing most parts of the city since last week.
