The rousingly critical conditions in Gaza are indeed concerning. In the spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood (Ukhuwah Islamiyah), International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) and Syria Care have joined hands with 50 entities to stand side by side with our Palestinians brothers and sisters. On 16th of May 2021, IIUM and its strategic partners have established Al Quds Donation drive which managed to collect a total sum of Rm 381,649.00. The funds have since been channeled to Rahma Worldwide, our strategic alliance.
The amount that we have managed to collect from 16th May until 23rd May 2021
Pictured below are the volunteers of Rahma Worldwide helping out to pack and distribute some basic necessities for our brothers and sisters in Palestine.
On 22nd of May 2021, Syria Care, IIUM and Brigade TV have organized “ Himpunan Solidariti Al Quds” with the aim to inculcate the spirit of togetherness among Malaysians with our brothers and sisters in Palestine. We were extremely honored to have our former Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahatir Mohamad to join and support us for this programme. More than 200 participants have joined in the programme via Zoom and also FB’s Live. The highlight of the Himpunan Solidariti was the live broadcast from Gaza and it was shared by Brother Bilal, a nurse who is currently volunteering and sharing his experience in Gaza.
On behalf of IIUM, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the support rendered. May Allah S.W.T bless all of you with peace and bring joy to your heart. We will continue to stand for our brothers and sisters in Palestine.
