Plight of the Palestinians

25 January 2009, The Star

More than 500 people recently gathered at the Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (Limkokwing) plaza to mark the launch of a fund-raising campaign — “Plight of the Palestinians: From Grim to Bleak”. The campaign was launched in the presence of the Palestinian ambassador to Malaysia, Abdelaziz Aboughosh.

The ceremony began with Limkokwing’s presidential special assistant Tiffanee Marie Lim delivering a speech on behalf of Limkokwing president Tan Sri Lim Kok Wing, expressing concern on the brutality of happenings during the war. Five students, two from Malaysia, one from Lithuania and another from the Netherlands, voiced their views on the war. The fifth student, Palestinian Rafat Dakhili, gave a touching account of his life in the line of fire in his homeland.

A song produced by the Limkokwing Sound and Music Design Academy and sung by the university’s choir, Let’s Heal the World, and a poem entitled People are Dying in my Living Room and recited by Lesego Goitsemang left many with tears in their eyes.

Besides acting as a call for peace the campaign also aims to raise funds for medical supplies. It is the second such campaign organised by the university.
