The addition of this small  package was taken from 10 units of medium package worth 5,000 pounds per unit which was then divided into 50 small packages . "Thus the total unit is small  provided 150 units and the medium package to 10 units,” explained the former chairman of the Indonesian Student Association in the UK (PPI UK).  The committee has received a waqf commitment of almost Rp. 8.5 billion just one week from the program launch last week. Five large waqf packages worth a minimum of £50,000 or around IDR 1 billion have been sold out with a total commitment value of £280,000. Similarly, 100 small packages of 'Waqf Mosaic' worth 1,000 pounds per unit.

According to Dhita, collections will continue to be open until the end of January with the addition of a target of 2 small packages or medium .  The Indonesian Islamic Family in the United Kingdom (KIBAR) also raised funds to purchase the 'Mosaic Waqf' at the IIC London mosque. "With financial support from KIBAR members spread across the UK as well as local recitations in British cities, KIBAR is committed to medium package waqf ," said KIBAR chairman Rudatin Windraswara.  Eko Kurniawan, chairman of the IIC London mosque construction committee, welcomed the enthusiasm of support through the 'Waqf Mosaic'.  "Through this waqf, the IIC committee is more optimistic that it can cover the lack of money to buy a former church property that we will turn into a mosque, which is only around £200,000 of the total purchase price of £1.5 million," said Eko.  As a form of appreciation, the names of the donors through this waqf scheme will be immortalized on the mosque wall mosaic. Meanwhile, for large package donations, it is possible for the donor's name to be used as office space, classrooms, stair hall rooms, and multi-purpose rooms.  This program is open until April 30, 2022, on a first come-first served basis . After this period, the committee will not accept orders for 'Waqf Mosaic' and incoming donations will be categorized as alms.  The building that will be used as Indonesia's first mosque in the UK is a former church located in the Neasden area, in northwest London.  The offer for this property has been received and is in the process of being deposited.

Corona 6th wave, also in Tohoku "Countermeasures, what should I do more ..."  The epidemic "6th wave" of the new coronavirus has also flooded Tohoku. The Omicron strain is rampant and the spread of infection is entering an area never experienced. While the medical and long-term care sites are scared of infection, they are desperate to prevent the collapse of the social infrastructure. I explored the current situation in Sendai city.  Medical ──── At the Dobashi Internal Medicine Clinic in Aoba-ku, Sendai City, the number of visits due to fever has increased sharply since the beginning of the year. Dr. Hironori Odakura said, "There are few symptoms of high fever as in the 5th wave, and there are many patients with low-grade fever, sore throat, and runny nose."  An average of about 10 patients suspected of being infected visit the hospital each day. The number of requests for medical treatment online and by telephone has increased. There is no substitute for the small family of the director, 4 nurses, and 4 clerical staff. In the hospital, we wear non-woven masks and face shields and eat silently.  However, the Omicron strain is characterized by many domestic infections. "I can't manage the staff's family. If I or the staff get infected, I have to stop the medical treatment," he said.  Director Odakura who wears a face shield for medical examination = 21st, Dobashi Internal Medicine Clinic  Long-term care ──── The special elderly nursing home "Altail Miyamachi" in Aoba Ward has decided to restrict visits from the 13th. Even a family member who has been vaccinated twice can only meet for about 15 minutes in a room dedicated to visits.  We called on the staff to refrain from going out of Miyagi prefecture. Kiyonori Shoko, the president of the operating corporation, explains, "If the number of absentees increases, only the minimum services such as meals and bathing will be available."  By early February, all 70 residents and staff will complete the third vaccination. "Restrictions on life lead to anxiety and stress for residents and their families. I don't know if strengthening infection control is really right."  Childcare ──── In Sendai City, on the 18th, it was found that a cluster (infectious person group) occurred at two childcare facilities. Kokucho Nursery School in Wakabayashi Ward is confused, "It's not for each person, but what should I do anymore?"  Disinfect parts that children touch, such as handrails, shelves, doorknobs, and picture book covers, many times a day. Wipe each toy with a cloth soaked in disinfectant. "I'm getting rough, but I don't care," said a female employee.  The room temperature drops due to frequent ventilation, so the director said, "We also added heating equipment at our feet." "Employees, children and parents are doing their best to do what they can," he said.  Education ──── "A growing number of students are refraining from going to school because their younger brothers and sisters have become infected and have become close contacts." Atsuro Iwakami, Deputy Principal of Tohoku Gakuin High School in Miyagino Ward, is aware of the effects of domestic infections.  In addition to the entrance examination in early February, there are concerns about the impact on the graduation ceremony on March 1. Last year, only graduates attended and the recording was posted on the web to parents. It is necessary to decide the holding method by mid-February.  Deputy Principal Iwakami prays, "I want to avoid situations where I can't show my child a sunny appearance for the second year in a row."
