Sad eyes – shivering body
Little fists – bare feet
Empty bellies – dry lips
Lost parents – no country
Scary nights – long days
Broken toys – no books
Questions many – answers none
I yet still keep my head high
For the world to see
I am a survivor – I am Rohingya

Gifts for Rohingya Refugees

This is my second blog post that I wanted to do to once again create awareness around this humanitarian project. We all can play our part of spreading the word about Testimony Tailors by re-blogging this blog post, so Testimony Tailors can get maximum exposure on social media. Even one donation towards the gift item will help them tremendously. Change does not happen overnight. It is a constant process and a struggle. Most of us have the gift of writing. Today we can show the world the power of pen and contribute towards greater good. I would strongly encourage and request my followers, fellow bloggers to please re-blog this appeal on their websites for even a day to create awareness. I would request my readers to share this post on their Facebook to bring attention towards the most persecuted people of the world.

How can I help?

I decided to do this blog post as I get asked how can one help in supporting a humanitarian cause be it helping Rohingya Refugees, victims of terrorists attacks, natural disaster, violence, health matters, importance of education, or any number of other issues that are happening around the globe. I myself used to struggle around thinking of ways of giving my best back to humanity. However, we all have limitations. Our limitations are around unable to travel to those parts of the world and physically helping those who are in great need of financial and medical aid. This does not mean that we should get disheartened and give up.  Take some time and read the following steps one can take and make a difference around the world even from their electronic devices. Always remember change is a constant process and does not happen overnight. One single step, even a thought of making a difference around the globe and reaching out starts the cycle of change and creates vibrations in the universe that overtime reaches out and affects everyone.

5 fingers

Starring at steam coming out of my hot tea in my favorite tea mug, one thought after another came in my mind and then faded away just like hot steam from my tea started to settle down.

I then looked at the title I gave to my article – “5 fingers”. Instantly my mind started to reel at various incidents around the globe among various communities, religions, race, and countries. Of course media plays a very powerful role in delivering these incidents to us. However, sometimes creating a positive influence on others yet at times fueling up negative thoughts and emotions among individuals of all age groups. Whatever, the impression might be given by media, the outcome sometimes fades away instantly and sometimes it lasts forever.
