200 vessel convoy to Gaza????
This sounds like pure bravado....
Sixteen non-governmental organisations (NGOs) under the Lifeline For Gaza (LL4G) are collecting RM7mil for a humanitarian aid mission to Gaza in November.
LL4G chairman Dr Noorazman Mohd Samsuddin said the NGOs hope to collect the amount in two months via several programmes including a mammoth rally for Palestine at Bukit Jalil Stadium in October.
"A charity dinner for corporations, charity sale, talks, campaigns and collection via SMS will also be held," he said after launching the 'Malaysian Humanitarian Voyage' exhibition and campaign here Monday.
He said money collected would be used to buy a vessel for the mission, medicine, educational tools, basic needs and building materials for wells, operating theatres, dialysis and trauma centres.
Malaysians' involvement with the last flotilla had attracted volunteers from Asean members Brunei, Thailand, Singapore, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia and European countries to join this convoy.
"The attack on Mavi Marmara made the world community realise atrocities committed by Israel's zionist regime and that it should be tried."
Noorazman said the mission would be prepared for attacks with strategies, doctors and sophisticated media communication system for global broadcasting and to monitor vessel movement.
The convoy of over 200 vessels will involve some 600 international NGOs.
The NGOs include Aman Malaysia, Haluan Malaysia, Dewan Pemuda Masjid, Yayasan Amal Malaysia, Pertubuhan Mawaddah Malaysia, Muslim Care Malaysia, Angkatan Belia Islam Malaysia (ABIM) and Viva Palestin Malaysia.
