Pahang to send 30 tonnes of aid to Palestine


KLANG: The Pahang government will send 30 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Gaza, Palestine, to ease the burden of the people in the conflict-stricken country.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail said the essential items, including food items in retort packaging, blankets and medicines, will be sent by sea from Port Klang on June 1 and are expected to arrive at Port Said, Egypt, on July 4.

He said the mission to deliver humanitarian aid, in collaboration with Ops Ihsan, was the result of the collection of donations through the Pahang4Palestine fund that was first mobilised during the Pahang4Palestine Solidarity gathering in Kuantan on Oct 28 last year.

“As of today, the total amount of donations collected through the Pahang4Palestine fund is RM1.6mil and we are converting the money into essential goods to be sent to the Palestinian people.

“I promise that every sen donated to the fund will reach Gaza. That is the guarantee of the state government, and we have a special committee to look after every donation received to make sure it is not used arbitrarily,” he said when launching the mission here yesterday, Bernama reported.

Wan Rosdy expressed confidence that the essential items would reach the Palestinian people safely as the state government had also received the cooperation of Wisma Putra, apart from a similar commitment given by the Egyptian Embassy in Malaysia.

At the same time, he also strongly condemned the cruel actions of the Zionist regime in the massacre carried out against the Palestinian people, which has claimed more than 35,000 lives, mostly children, women and the elderly.
