 EID MUBARAK TO ALL PASHTUN SOCIETY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS!
Although this is the end of our holy month of Ramadan and the gifted celebration of Eid, manypeople will be inclined not to celebrate, out of grievance in light of the Pakistan flood situation.Apart from this, there are Muslims suffering all over the world, with starvation and poverty seenespecially in the Muslim world. Many choose this time to exchange their gift of celebration, into anact of generous donation, to a crisis such as this. Although Muslims are obliged to give Zakat at theend of Ramadan, it is more important now so then ever before. This has really hit home with manyPashtun expatriates living all around the world, although most of them are used to seeing onecalamity after another. This Ramadan and Eid special issue will be focused on the theme of theseevents and we will be covering relief efforts going on in Pakistan.The Pashtun Society has linked up with a small local Peshawar based organization, called theSociety for Humanitarian Assistance, Empowerment, Research and Development (SHARED).They have been involved in the relief effort, within the flood affected areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa,and they have also managed to set up a small network of volunteers, who work together to executethe effort. So far, the small amounts of money we have raised have gone a long way in helping theflood victims surrounding Peshawar, and currently, there is a demand for medicines and basicmedical equipment, such as gloves and face masks.The Pashtun Society is currently in the process of setting up a bank account, for the collection of donations for this cause, as well as the long term Pashtun cause for development and re-structuringof the Pashtun lands across Pakistan and Afghanistan. If you would like to make any kind of financial donation, no matter how small, you can send a cheque made out to:The Pashtun SocietyStudents UnionThe University of Westminster 35 Marylebone RoadLondon NW 1 5LSUnited KingdomYou can also send postal orders, obtainable from a post office. If you are based in Pakistan or Afghanistan, you can make a donation directly to Humanitarian Assistance, Empowerment,Research and Development (SHARED):Bank: Standard Chartered BankAccount number: 01-1833274-01Swift Code: SCBLPKKXEven if you can only afford to donate just £1 or just 5Rupees, the money will go a long way inhelping these victims.I wish everyone will have a happy Eid full of celebration, along with prayers and thoughts for thosewho are suffering and unable to afford celebrating Eid.
Eid Mubarak!
