Ladies where do I start.
Last night was the Somalia Famine Fundraiser Iftar dinner. Mashallah it was a successful night Alhamdulliah. Everyone that turned up knew why they were there. They dug deep and enjoyed what was on offer.
Organising anything is a major headache as we all know but subhanallah when its for a great cause everything is compromised. What was compromised you may ask?
Well with such an amazing turn up some might not have been all that comfortable for sometime but no one complained. As someone mentioned to one of my sisters it was befitting although no where near what our brother are suffering in the region of Somalia and the Horn of Africa. Its good to be uncomfortable, that’s when we can understand the less fortunate among us.
I meet friends I haven’t seen in sometime and made new ones as well mashallah. But I have to say bonding with the sisters organising this event over the last three weeks was the highlight. I’m lucky to be in their company alhamdullaih.
Not including the money from some of the items that were auctioned, so far the amount raised from Sunday night is $14,135.85. That brings the total amount raised to date at $28,480.50. May you all be rewarded… Lets see if we can reach the $50,000 mark!
All in all a brilliant night masallah. And like a sister said if this is what can be achieved with little time then anything can be done. We have each others support.
