Possible Dreams and a Soaring Impulse!

May 20, 2010

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

My friend Dr. Maithri Goonileke of the beautiful Soaring Impulse blog, is a medical doctor that spends part of each year caring for the AIDS orphans in Swaziland.  I consider him a humanitarian and a hero, and when he sent his friends this note on Facebook, I wanted to share it with all the readers of this blog. He wrote:

“Yesterday I had the privilege of speaking to a group of young Muslim children about the AIDS orphans of Swaziland and making a difference.

“Since we launched Possible Dreams International in September of last year, we have raised 40 thousand dollars, started 100 malnourished orphan children on monthly food supplementation, built 5 houses for orphan families, provided hundreds and hundreds who are starving or living with AIDS with urgent medical attention, food/social assistance and basic needs…

“I have been astounded by the compassionate response of people all around the world…. and I am readying now to return to Africa in a couple of weeks…

“Yet still every day there is a new heartbreak, a new child on the brink, or a patient whom I hear is sleeping in the rain or cannot afford his medical or school fees…

“So I am constantly trying to find ways of spreading word of our work…

“I am asking friends of mine to consider suggesting our organization to those on their friend list…

“On our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/possibledreamsinternational there is a link on the sidebar of the page called ‘suggest to friends’ …it allows you to send an invitation to as many friends as you would like to join our group…”

Also, you can go to the Possible Dreams International website and read of his work, and if you scroll all the way down you will find a donate button through Paypal.  Please help as you can. It doesn’t matter how much you give. Every dollar can save a life in Swaziland.

“He who takes care of an orphan, whether he is his relative or a stranger, will be in Jannah (paradise) with me… – a hadith of the Prophet (pbuh), reported by Abu Hurairah.

Ya Haqq!
