GULF Daily News readers and online visitors are already rallying round to support our second annual holy month community initiative to provide support for the victims of the earthquakes that devastated Syria and Türkiye, as well as struggling local families.
Your campaigning daily news provider has teamed up with the renowned Bahrain Red Crescent Society (BRCS) and we are appealing to YOU to donate gifts during Ramadan to our offices at The Press in East Riffa, our commercial HQ on Exhibitions Road and the BRCS HQ in Manama.
Under the hashtag #HelpThem we need your support to collect brand new:
- Clothes, shoes and accessories for men, women and children
- Blankets and pillows
- Hygiene kits
- And toys
Amongst the first to support the appeal was Radio Bahrain host Ben Weston who interviewed GDN Media’s managing editor Stanley Szecowka about the initiative last night on his new Ramadan evening show broadcast live at 7pm.
“What a worthwhile cause,” said Mr Weston, who donated much-needed brand new blankets and pillows to the cause. “I wish the #HelpThem campaign every success.”
The February 6 earthquakes were the worst natural disaster to strike modern-day Türkiye with more than 56,000 people killed in Türkiye and neighbouring Syria. Your generous donations will help people whose lives were destroyed in a matter of seconds and minutes and give hope that rebuilding dignity and everyday life will be possible.
We can help BRCS to achieve so much by picking up some extra clothing, blankets, toothbrushes, sanitary products and toys, for example, when you’re next on a shopping trip. Our teams are ready and waiting to receive your big-hearted donations.
#HelpThem … please.
