I cried reading this…

‘Read! In the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who Created-‘

Surah Al Alaq, verse 1, the first Revelation

Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wabarakatuh, my dear brothers and sisters.

I checked Viva Palestina‘s website to check on the progress of the humanitarian aid convoy to the people of Gaza. (the site is in my blogroll).  There was a Bernama article about the Malaysian volunteers who had joined the convoy a few days ago. This is an excerpt from the article:

According to the Head of Convoy in charge of logistics, Amer Nazir, relief materials as part of the humanitarian package for the Palestinians include medical equipment, food, babies’ food and winter clothing.

He said the Palestinians in Gaza were suffering from shortages of clean water, fresh food and medical supplies.

“As far as medical aid, we’ve got a whole range of medical supplies from syringes, dialysis machines, heart transplant machines, wheelchairs, walking sticks, bandages, from the smallest things to the biggest machines, we have with us,” he said.

Amer, a volunteer himself, said the convoy consisted of people from all nations including Malaysia, US, UK, France, Belgium, Italy, Turkey, New Zealand and Australia with diverse background.

I cried because I felt overwhelmed that so many people had come together to help the people of Palestine, facing blockades and delays from government red-tapes but they’ve never given up hope of breaking the Israeli blockade on the Palestinians.

May Allah bless them!
