BANGSAR, 10 July 2014 – Media Prima Berhad is re-activating the Tabung Kemanusiaan Palestin Media Prima Berhad. The fund was first established in November 2012 in collaboration with Mercy Malaysia. We have now included the Perdana Global Peace Foundation as another partner in this effort.
The on-going atrocities in Gaza in the holy month of Ramadan has led to countless deaths and injuries of innocent men, women and children. Visuals coming out from Gaza show grim images of unarmed citizens being killed mercilessly. Images of children lying in pools of blood are seen daily in our television screens.
We appeal once again to generous and caring Malaysians to help the plight of the people of Gaza in this trying time.
We urge the public to donate generously to the Fund. Contributions by individuals and organizations can be channeled to Maybank account number 5642-7651-0331 under the name “Tabung Kemanusiaan Palestin Media Prima Berhad” via the following methods:
