CLOSING DATE: 22nd MARCH 2009
As we are all well aware of the current situation of Palestine. Over 1500 killed, 5000 injured and nearly 1million homeless. Current events have generated some of the worst conditions man has witnessed in recent history.
With this situation ahead of us, it’s important some effort is made to reach out to the children who have survived the genocide. These are children that are at the very least emotionally scared from being witnesses to such devastation, and thus IslamBradford is working with Masjid Al Aqsa to provide some level of emotional support for these children.
Our intervention is a simple one, to reach out to them and show them that the children in Bradford (and any other city that wishes to join the growing list, which now includes; Leeds, Bolton, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bury, London) care for them, and are learning about the land which they are losing their lives for.
Therefore IslamBradford have established a three tier project:
To give every participating Madarsah/School a children’s wall chart which, explains the value of Palestine in Islam, and provides some historical overview of the situation in a child friendly manner. The focus being to provide the Madarsah/School teachers with a tool to educate their children about Palestine.
We have established a competition to capture the children’s imagination. The competition will be to do a drawing/ design, depending on the age of the person, on Palestine. The competition will be judged by the Mudaris of Masjid Al Aqsa and there will be some great prizes from a laptop to a collection of books.
Entries to the competition will only be accepted with completed Donation Form
. We want each competition entry to be accompanied with a donation toward Palestine. Thus all entrants will be given a donation form, with which they need to collect funds to be sent to Palestine, from £1 to £1000. We want the children to feel involved.
This project needs your support, and therefore we ask all to try and get involved, and work with their local Madarsah/Schools to encourage them to join the project too. For further details please our Information Brochure.
For all institutes participating (Madarsah/Schools, etc), please contact us on 01274 395521/07973518975 to request for a Free Campaign Pack. The pack will contain:
An Information Brochure, a Poster, a Wall Chart to display in your institute and a small quantity of Donation Forms for you to photocopy.
