The many senseless wars seem to have just begun as I could see no end to them. I have seen enough gory photos of blood, death and beheadings in the Facebooks and TV news until I closed my FB & switched TV channels for days. I felt so sad and helpless to see the sufferings while I could not do much except to pray for peace to mankind again. I wanted to cry for the orphans, lost families, injured victims and hundreds of thousands homeless people fleeing their homes and country.
This MUST STOP!
By chance, I saw in the community facebook posted by one kind soul - Syed Azmi who is a well known voice in my area who would always raise funds, help and create awareness to alert the whole community. Even lost and injured kittens would not pass his eyes. Syed Azmi would do anything to help any beings! I always felt he is an angel sent from heavens to wake us up. He posted an appeal to collect any winter jackets, coats, warm blankets, coats, gloves and even teddy bears to be sent to homeless victims in Syria via the SyriaCare. He kindly offered his parent's lovely house above to become the collection centre.
I immediately sprang into action and pleaded with my wife and friends to donate away all their jackets, sweaters and gloves scarfs to help. We have excuse to give away now and buy new ones in future. A small help goes a long way to keep the victims warm during the coming Winter months which starts getting cold in early November! All the Makciks, Datuks, Mak Datins and neighbours love Syed Azmi! They gave everything they had including high end winter coats, branded blankets and almost everything from home.
Everyone had the same spirit and goals to help the victims in Syria. They came in cars and trucks to unload their donations besides chipping in their time to help to sort, pack and send them to Syria. It was a beautiful feeling to see the spirit and goods pouring in between 3pm to 6pm.
These muscular men came in their trucks to help load up and send them all to Syria.
The next time you see anyone appealing for help, please do something and don't ignore when your little time & small help could bring mountains of happiness & hope to the victims of war.

The above victims are all our brothers and sisters who are suffering out there in the war torn countries. They are living in greatest fear and immense pain from their bodily injuries & the loss of loved ones who were brutally killed. Over here, we are all still enjoying ice cream, sunny weathers, shopping and reading Blogs & Facebook. Do something in anyway we can to help.
Please remember them all in our prayers too.
