Qurban for Refugees from Palestine and Darfur

Wednesday, 12 November 2008

Above are some glimpse of what life is for refugees living in Lebanon (from Palestine) and in Central Africa (from Sudan and Darfur) - both groups running from their land because of war due to unresolved conflicts, oppression and injustice.

The United Nations (2007) fact sheet mentions: "More than 200,000 people are estimated to have died and at least 2 million displaced from their homes in Darfur since fighting broke out in 2003 between Government of Sudan forces, allied Janjaweed militia and other armed rebel groups. Atrocities such as the murder of civilians and the rape of women and girls have been widespread and continue, underscoring the necessity for urgent action."

For the Palestinian, they are suffering from the occupation of a government and a radical movement whom are tyrants and have no care for the word justice or human rights - interestingly they are well represented especially in the US through AIPAC and other Zionist lobby group.

As a result, the only "Palestinian territories" left: Gaza and the West Bank have become highly overpopulated with very little resources left to be shared and refugee camps that shares the same fate or if not worse existing near Jordan and in Lebanon. This, while Israel thrive and prosper with plenty of space and resources for its population which by the way is lesser than the Palestinian living in the Palestinian territories and in refugee camps.

In addition, the killing by trained Israeli military personnel equipped with military equipments and tanks onto civilian termed: terrorists - whose only armor are the strength of their unwavering spirit and only weapon are the memories of their murdered relatives - are truly causes for a concern. Especially since in view of religious edicts or phrases from the scriptures with whom these people (Israeli) constitute their administration.

The Old Testament reads when God ask Cain after the first blood was shed: "Where is Abel thy brother?" And he said, "I know not. Am I my brother's keeper?" And the Lord said, "What has thou done? The voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now art thou cursed ..." (Genesis 4:9-11)

Saff Perdaus is humbled to be given the opportunity in organizing a Qurban campaign where canned "qurban" meat from Australia will be distributed to the refugees from Darfur and Palestine. Since, there are lack of electricity thus proper refrigeration, canned meat are the best form of contribution from us to them.

As such, I implore you to join us in this cause. A sheep (S$195.00) is enough for 24 cans of meat which can help families to sustain for weeks if not months - something we take for granted here in Singapore.

For more information or to order - email to Sis Afifah (Executive Officer, Saff Perdaus): afifah@perdaus.org.sg or call us at 65132305.

Fulfill your ibadah qurban in the best possible way with us today!
