Sadness In Indonesia

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuh

There are so many, many videos out there.. but this one is very special to me, and so I'd like to share it with you.

The organization PKPU is one I trust, and have worked with. Please check out the short clip. If you can help financially, this is the perfect month to do so, if you can't.. your prayers are just as important, and I implore you to pray for them before breaking your fast.

Insha'Allah this Ramadaan they will be reaching out to the most poor, remote areas in the country. If you would like to know more about the Ramadaan Campaign contact me, I'll be happy to send you an exact outline of where the work will be done, etc.

Note: Those who can not do a direct bank transfer (or it cost too much).. but would really like to donate, if you can get the money to me (through paypal - before Tuesday, Sept. 9th.. I can send it out.

Jazak'Allahu khair.

Assalaamu alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh sister,

I just managed to watch the video in full - subhan Allah - 109 MILLION people in one country living on $2 or less per day. Staggering figure. May Allah improve their situation, ameen.

I am happy about 2 things...

And you are an active global sister (what I call woman who contributes to global wealth & health).

Mashallah, finished "Don't Be Sad" 2 months ago. Great book.

Love the stuff here. Very my hubby will not think I am just a crazy girl wanting to help everyone...LOL.

Such shocking revelations. Really, this is very disturbing. I sincerely pray that they shall attain better conditions during this blessed month of Ramadhan.
