Over 8000 join solidarity walk

The initiative, hosted by various NGOs and businesses, aims to bring together the community as a show of solidarity with the people of Palestine, promote peace, foster awareness, and engage in positive fund raising activities as part of efforts to support the collection of the national Humanitarian Relief Fund for Palestinians in Gaza.

The walkathon, supported by various government ministries and department, began with mass Subuh prayers followed by a talk on Palestine and the walk.
