FREE Call from VODAFONE

SPEED
By SPEED

Well, it's not a Free call from VODAFONE it's self but from me.

I have a Vodafone SIM Card which has a credit of QR. 1,000/-.

Since Ramadan and Eid is approaching fast I thought to give this SIM Card along with mobile set to someone who is very poor and cannot to afford to make a call to his love ones back Home.

I prefer to give to those labourers/ needy people who lost their jobs or has not received salaries from their Employers for long time.

If anyone of you know such people (Group of people) I would love to go to them and give this SIM card with a Mobile phone to one of the responsible person in the Group who will give each person say 10 mins (depends on the number of people) to make a call to their Families.

Once again I will give this SIM Card to those who had NO SOURCE OF INCOME.

speed...i know a group of workers who are not receiving their salaries for almost five months now, without overtime pay...nepalis, bengalis, filipinos,sri lankis....they are working in industrial area for a reputed company, but still they are deprived of everything, including proper health care and medical attention...i hope you can give the sim to them, for them to have this great chance of making a free call to their families back home....please pm me..

Allah bless you brother!

I am sorry to all those who got offended by my action.

And Thanks to all who provided me the info. about the poor/ needy people in Doha.

By SPEED• 12 years 11 months ago.
SPEED

I think my English is very poor or I am not able to explain what I am looking for?

Let me remind you one thing... There are different kind of charities... One kind of charity is totally from your personal pocket for which I fully agree that God does not like those people who give the charity and announce in public.

Second thing, in this case, this Qr. 1000 is not from my pocket.. it was given to me in a promotion by Vodafona.

And the mobile set i am just giving to make a call. So once the credit is used I will take back my mobile as sim card.

Coming to the point why I posted on QL to the public is only one reason that I tried myself to find some needy people but couldn't and since this promotion will end by 30 Sept. the money is the card will be lost?

So tell me should I just waste this money if I don't find anyone by myself of it is better to ask people if they know some people who are in need?

I got very good response from QL Community members and tomorrow I will be visiting those places.

This does not means that I am denying what you said is wrong.. I do agree with you but again whatever charity i do from my income remains between me and my Allah.

As stated in Quran:

"Believers! Do not nullify your acts of charity by stressing your benevolence and causing hurt as does he who spends his wealth only to be seen by men and does not believe in Allah and the Last Day. The example of his spending is that of a rock with a thin coating of earth upon it: when a heavy rain smites it, the earth is washed away, leaving the rock bare; such people derive no gain from their acts of charity. Allah does not set the deniers of the Truth on the right way. (2:262 - 264)"

I really dont think you know whom you're speaking to...but I'm sure I know one thing that you're speaking CRAP!

You're talking to a person who runs the Qatar Living Volunteer Group who go out on a highly regular basis and help out the needy with various campaigns ranging from Beach Cleanup, Blood Donations, Beat the Heat etc...so I'm sure he knows what to do...I guess he came here cos Qatar Living reaches out to a lot many households, and lot many companies personnel...so anyone...out there who sees a person in need to get on the phones but cant afford one is just what he asked...so it is only fair to bring forward a person or step away from this...

Windup yourself mate...cos there aint any merchants here...!

Other than that, hope you have a great day...!

I don't think Speed was trying to show the world that he was pious and gives things to people. He's been a QL member for a long time and has proven with his deeds that he indeed does what he speaks.

His intention with this thread was to try and find the needy people, who would really appreciate the gesture. From what Is see, he has already got a lot of responses and he said he would PERSONALLY go and see before doing something about it.

Which part of his original query did you think was a show-off? It obviously means you don't know him as a person. It was then sad that you accused him of being an attention-seeker. I personally feel that a collective effort (be it finding the needy or making plans to help them) is always better than an individual effort.

And I'm sure Speed has been doing much charity on his own without him necessarily speaking in public about it. Try to see the good in people at least some of the time, my brother.

Just my thought.

This proved that sadly charity is done predominantly for the benefit of the giver.

You don't need to advertise your good deeds here, go out onto the street and just do what you want with your phone. Better yet, donate monthly to good causes that give direct benefit to those that need it most (and not necessarily limited to Qatar).

By the way once the credit is used i will take my SIM back coz that is the special vodafone number and it is on my name.

Speed paaji...noble thought, no idea where and who...but do you have any deportation center for Pakistanis, I know we have one for Indians...where you have all stranded people, WAITING to go back home and they certainly would do good with a few free mins to their families who are thousands of miles away and they dont have any income...guess the max they get is Food & Water & shelter before they're sent back home!

So do you have anything like that for the Paki boys...?

But honestly I want to find those group of people who have been abandoned by their employers or no salaries for past several months..

Because last time when I dealt with such kind of people I know what kind of suffering they go thru....

Ashwin and shreeya and Xray are witness because I took them to those labourers who were abandoned by their Employers and they were not paid for several months.

Let us find such people then we will talk about it further.

That's a brilliant thought. You've got a heart of gold and head full of fertile ideas. LOL.

Could we take this one notch higher? I'm willing to buy some phone cards and give it to the needy. problem is, I've no idea who the needy are. If there were some other people willing to make similar contributions, cannot we pool in our resources together?

Just a thought. God bless you, my friend. You're a true believer indeed.
