The Red Cresent is sending the trucks, after volunteers collected donations from people across Syria. They are carrying medical supplies and food.

 

 

 

They will leave Syria and enter Jordan, on their way to Gaza at 10am on Saturday. If you want to follow their progress, or donate, you can read their live Twitter feed here.

We owe the people in these photos a debt of gratitude. Both the volunteers, for giving their time – and the people who donated, for giving their money.

    Sasa, excellent news.. – even Iraq on tues 30th was getting aid ready to ship over to Gaza… now what about the other countries that are not war torn? or better yet, their able leaders…?

    God bless the volunteers and the people who contributed , especially the garbage collector in the blue overalls , he reminds me of the parable Jesus (alesalam)told of the widow,s mite, her coin was more precious to Allah than the millions the hipocrits give (Saudi Arabia)?

    i hope they reach them.
    but i read on a previous Jordanian based blog,

    ?*anything of the listed above won’t get inside Gaza:
    3- Anything made or packed in (Syria -libya -Iran).

    Yesterday I happened to chat to a young man lving in Gaza(May Allah protect him):
    He said:”we are not getting anything, and the things which we are getting is not what we need.”

    i think the news which we are receiving are not valid or correct.
    we need to speak them to know what is truelly happening.
    Regards.

    Regards.
