255. Aid for Humanity

Last night, I read with a heavy heart the latest update on the missing MH370 flight.

I felt compelled to write these words:

Today, let us not be divided by nationality, race nor religion. We weep for humanity, for the human lives lost.

May the families & loved ones of the people on board find their peace soon. May we be reminded to live our lives to the fullest every day and to love the people who matter.

We will all face our deaths soon enough. Let’s make it worth the while.

I believe many of us, especially those in the Southeast Asia region, felt deeply for the incident.

It could have been any of us, or our loved ones.

There is nothing we can do right now for the lives on board, except to pray. There is still something we can do for they who are battling for their lives and loved ones in Syria.

I remember a video that was circulating around on Facebook, titled “Would you help a freezing child?”

It hit me hard, and reminded me of the Aid for Syria Winter Project a group of us conducted back in December. For my collection point in Woodlands itself (which was one of two by the way), we received such generous donations!

Ummah Welfare Trust is committed to help the people of Syria, Iraq, Central African Republic, Sindh and many many more. Once again, this isn’t about nationality, race, or religion. This is about humanity.

Touch your heart.

Are we doing all that we can within our capacity?
