'Qatari Day of Solidarity' for victims in Philippines and Somalia
The 'Qatari Day of Solidarity' is to be organised today by charities and humanitarian associations in Qatar to support the victims of the Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in the Philippines and the concurrent tropical cyclone that recently hit Puntland, in Somalia.
Qatar Red Crescent Society Chairman Dr Mohammed bin Ghanim al Ali al Maadid was quoted by Qatar Tribune as saying that this series of events would be organised on November 19, 2013.
"Under the guidance of the Emir His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani, the humanitarian associations agreed to support our leadership's benevolent efforts to alleviate the suffering of those affected.
"Driven by a long history of supporting vulnerable people everywhere regardless of their religion, race, colour, we aim to relieve the victims by raising money and donations in kind.
We also wish to pay tribute to our Filipino and Somali brothers and sisters who continue contributing to our development process and renaissance, he added.
I WOULD LIKE ALSO TO THANK ALL NATIONALITY AND ALL KABAYANS WHO HELP.. WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT SOO MUCH.
FYI: the reason why i said that because i have some relatives also who is affected by typhoon. and again thank you from the bottom of our heart. :)
KABAYAN you can't blame me because it's JUST MY OPINION and hnd namn cguro ako magbibigay ng opinion kung hnd ko alam ang sinasabi ko RIGHT?, and i respect your opinion too.
to @flat14alsadd i know what im saying po, dahil 100% FIL-MUSLIM po ako.. and kaya ko lang po eto nasabi is mismong si Mr. Robin Padilla ang nagpost na may mga muslim pong hnd nakakakuha ng tulong. gsto mo isend ko pa picture sayo?
TO Qatar, Thank you to for all the support and to Omairbenomar, you don't know what you are saying. In times like this WE ARE ALL FILIPINOS not identified by religion. Thank you for your concern though.
Its nice to know that people can be so generous and get togather for a worthy cause but the authorities in some of this countries where this tragedies occur on a regular basis need to learn from the experiences and get a effective disaster management system in place so such a great loss of life could be avoided or atleast minimized. This countries like the Philippines should learn from other countries in the region where similar disasters also occur and who have got systems in place to manage or atleast to minimize the loss of life when such disasters occur
i'm from the Philippines and i would like to thank you for all the Love and care and support you have shown my brothers and sisters regardless of what raise we are. Truly people are amazing through hearts. we are blessed that we are saved but it breaks my heart to see these people how they feel, hope by the help of all the countries and our Qatar can make a difference. Thank you so much.
we are blessed as well as am personally thankful for everybody from many different countries helping our fellow countrymen....my prayers for each and everyone.
Thank you all for your help to my kababayans! To my kababayans out there, KAYA NATIN TO, HUWAG KAYO MAWALAN NG PAG ASA!
Dear it is not matter of Muslim its matter of Human please help all Human
to omairbenomar: I dont think that religion is the issue here. I believe that those people distributing the relief goods are doing their best to help those in the affected areas. It so happened that until now, there are a number of affected areas without communication lines, roads are not accessible, etc. When we say Filipino people, no matter what religion you are into, surely will get help. Its just a matter of time to serve everyone (we are talking in millions of people). Patience is a vertue.
to the Philippine gov't also, please don't be unfair in giving relief goods and help, because their some pictures spreading that MUSLIM people they really need help.. PLEASE HELP also the MUSLIM people.
