Dear Respected Brothers and Sisters
We pray that you are all in good health and spirit. We cannot report the same for the besieged and bombarded population of Homs and other regions in Syria who are struggling to survive the ruthless onslaught of their ruler. We read with tears and broken hearts of the pain and suffering that these people have to endure in their quest for freedom, justice and equality.
More than 300 have been killed over the past week alone, including innocent women and children. Existing health facilities and field hospitals are overwhelmed by the constant stream of casualties, many of whom die due to inadequate care and resources and blood loss. We also learn, with disgust, of the government’s unethical and immoral violation of all human rights conventions by preventing the injured from receiving care and treatment and firing on medical and other health personnel or facilities.
Our colleagues in Lebanon and Turkey have responded with courage and conviction in providing the thousands of refugees, many injured, most destitute and starving from the blockades to food and sustenance in their villages, towns and cities. They have established emergency health centres with triage facilities and specialist care. They, however, need our urgent support. Medicines and medical supplies are urgently required to deliver this emergency care and treatment. Medical personnel and related health professionals are also required to sustain the operations.
Please rally the support of your membership in your respective countries to assist our brothers working on the ground in these refugee camps in Lebanon and Turkey. Donate generously to alleviate the pain and suffering of these destitute and abandoned people of Syria.. You will find the bank account of IMA Lebanon and the FIMA relief account below. Please donate and donate generously! May Allah (SWT) reward you all abundantly with His choicest blessings for your contributions, whether it be your labour, your cash or your prayers.
