The Purple Bandage team along with Al Imdaad Foundation returned recently from a trip to the Turkish and Syrian border. The group  included businessman, individuals from other organisations,a representative from Al Imdaad Foundation and Purple Bandage who simultaneously  describe this trip as  a humbling and traumatic experience.

"Witnessing the conditions that our muslim brothers,  sisters and children of Syria are facing on a day to day basis just for Survival brings tears to ones eyes,  and this is  just the condition  of the refugees  who fled to Turkey. The question that lingers in ones mind is what and how much worse off is the conditon of the innocent civilians that are left inside Syria?" , expressed one of the team members



AThe group visited 3 Turkish  cities on the Syrian boarder (namely: Kilis, Reyhanli and Antakya) and also Istanbul where they visited  rehabilitation centres,  hospitals, orphanages, centres for widows and did house visits..

As the Syrain crises intensifies  the demand and need of the Syrian refugees inside of Syria and of those  who flee to Turkey and other European countries  increase on a daily basis requiring  safety  and shelter as a priority  whilst food and water become an unknown source..

Upon their return the group in conjunction with Al Imdaad have decided to  start more projects  such as feeding schemes, empowerment projects and building or masjids and madrasahs, above  current operations  such as  adoptions of orphans , widows and families aswell as medical supplies nd feeding schemes in Syria

Nabi Muhammed – peace be upon him – said: “You will be split up into groups of armies. An army will be in Shaam, an army in Yemen and an army in Iraq.” Ibn Hawlah – may Allah be pleased with him – said: “Choose for me O messenger of Allah if I’m around to witness that. So he said: “You must join Shaam, for it is the chosen land of Allah in His earth. In it the chosen ones among His servants shall have protection. Otherwise, go to Yemen but be prepared to drink from still water. For Allah has given me a guarantee concerning Shaam and its people.” [Narrated by Imam Ahmad and Abu Dawood].

We urge the Muslim community of South Africa to open up our hearts and donate generously to this course and help our muslim  brothers and sisters  who are in dire  need  of our financial support
