NGO Should Not Move On Its Own To Gaza - Abdul Azeez
The chairman of the Umno welfare bureau, Datuk Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim said the situation in that country at the moment was still turbulent thus careful planning and the safety aspect must be emphasised before leaving for Gaza.
"The Umno welfare bureau hopes that all NGOs in the country wishing to go to Gaza would not act hastily but should sit down together to discuss. We create a secretariat and put aside political boundaries.
"As far as I know, no one has moved on their own but there are individuals who have made announcements (to go). That's why I propose that we sit down together to discuss and go there under one banner and the Malaysian spirit, not go under the name of the party, to assist the Palestinians who are suffering," he told reporters after taking orphans from Baling to buy clothes at a shopping centre, here Sunday.
Abdul Azeez, who is also chairman of the 1Malaysia Putera Club, said he was preparing to carry out a humanitarian mission to Gaza with specialist doctors, volunteers and media personnel.
