The Human Relief Committee of the Arab Physicians’ Syndicate launched a public campaign under the slogan "Palestine will never starve” to collect donations for the Palestinian Authority to ease embargo by western governments. The Palestinian Culture Minister, Dr. Attallah Abu Al Sabh, attended the launching ceremony in addition to several other prominent figures including Dr. Abdel Moneum Abu El Fotoh, General Secretary of the Arab Physicians Syndicate and member of the Muslim Brotherhood Executive Bureau; Dr. Aziz Sedki, former Egyptian PM and head of the National Front for Change (NFC); Dr. Hamdy Al Said, head of the Egyptian Physicians’ Syndicate; and a delegate from the Arab League headed by Dr. Hussien Hamouda. In its first day, the campaign received pledges for more than two million dollars in donations from the private sector and individuals.

In his speech, Dr. Abu el-Fotoh asserted that the money collected during this campaign should not be called “donations” but rather a “duty” towards the brothers in Palestine. He also called for all national forces and civil society institutions-especially the media- to participate in this campaign to ensure its success.

On Friday May 12, 2006, the campaign will organize a telethon live on major satellite channels with a goal to collect a million dollar in two hours starting 5:00 PM GMT. Several prominent figures were invited to attend the telethon, including Sheikh Youssef Al Karadawy, Dr. Amr Moussa, Arab League Secretary, and Mr. Mohamed Hassanein Hikal, a famous political writer and historian.

Ikhwanweb invites those interested in helping Palestinian people to donate to this campaign. Money collected will be used directly to meet the basic needs of Palestinians.
Ikhwanweb will also keep an update on the next Friday’s event
