Hate just turned into Love.

Within 24 hours, a world full of anger and hate, forever bent on destroying lives, has become united in its love, compassion and desire to SAVE lives.

Machine gun wielding Indonesian soldiers who were sent to Acheh to control rebel insurgents and even kill them if they had to, are now carrying lost children out of the water and handing out food and blankets to homeless Achinese people.

How perfect Allah is.

What can YOU do? Here in Malaysia, Nationwide Express has been actively involved in transporting much-needed clothes and blankets to our tsunami victims in the north. They have 117 branches throughout Malaysia. You, and everyone else here, can collect clothes and blankets from your families, offices, schools or colleges, then call the Nationwide Express hotlines at 03-55121000 and 03-55127000 to find out how you can get the packages to them.

If you want to donate money (which will then be used to send volunteer doctors and medical supplies to Penang, Kedah, Acheh and Sri Lanka, inshaallah), you can collect from your community, then send the money directly to Mercy Malaysia through anyone's Maybank account, and credit it to account number 5621 7950 4126. (You can check with Mercy at 03-42569999 for the accuracy of their Maybank account number.)

And finally, we can offer the easiest, most precious contribution of all: Our Prayers.
