Mukhriz lead humanitarian mission to Gaza

My friend, Dato' Mukhriz Mahathir lead a nine person humanitarian mission to Gaza, this evening. The trip is being organised by Peace Malaysia, where he is the Co-ordinator. They have so far collected over RM 250,000.00 in cash and others, in kind, for the mission to help relieve the suffering of Palestinians in Gaza, currently under Isreali occupation, attack and siege.

They departed this evening onboard Etihad Arlines to Abu Dhabi, enroute to Cairo. They also carried 80kg of Famous Amos cookies and toys, collected and organised by UMNO Cheras and the consort of the Tunku Mahkota Johor, Raja Zarith Sofia Sultan Idris.

Three doctors will be part of their team and the money collected will be used to purchase medicine and other essential supplies in Cairo. They will liaise with the Gaza Red Cresent Society and UN, for handing over the supplies and be brought into Gaza.

Hey, a family friend, whos a UMNO cheras wanita chief or something that goes by the name zuraina, i believe is on the same flight, same mission to Gaza. look-wise, she can fool everyone by telling she's datuk Sharizat and everyone would fall for it.

Yes she is. Zuraina is the Cheras UMNO Secretary. He was part of this team that left for Gaza on the Etihad Airlines flight.
