At this occasion, *Mr. Zeshan Afzal, Global CEO SAF* said “ Muslim Ummah is like one body, if one part is in pain, the whole body should feel the pain. SAF will do all it can to support our Rohingya brothers and sisters in need together with BWT to give them a new hope, a hope of Hope Not Out. *Salman Qassim Mohammady General Secretary of BWT* said, “Where ever we are, we are united and this is the source of our strength. The problem our Ummah is facing today is the lack of unity amongst us. Today’s event is an example of how we can join hand to rejuvenate our brotherhood ”.
