Good job by OIC

Even though we often criticize major organizations like the OIC or the UN as being ineffective on certain political developments, there is no denying the fact that they do at times a yeoman service when it comes to taking care of the afflicted people in many regions.
OIC is said to have launched a humanitarian campaign in the Central African Republic (CAR) where Muslims have suffered a lot and made available food and other essential assistance during Ramadan helpin hundreds of displaced people in Bangui.
This is something appreciable and we must lend our moral support to OIC for reaching out to those far-flung regions to extend urgent humanitarian aid in the holy month of Ramadan and during Eid to both the Muslim as well as non-Muslim populations in CAR.
I read that the OIC is doing this in close cooperation with country’s Interim President Catherine Samba Panza, the foreign minister, the archbishop of Bangui, Imam Bashir of the Central Mosque and other senior political and religious leaders.
Bravo OIC and its staff for giving a ray of hope amid so much chaos and persecution particularly in Palestine! This is the leadership and this is what the world requires today.
Unlike the lip services paid by top world leaders, this Muslim organization is quietly doing a great job, which needs to expand its activities across the world.
Muslim countries led by Saudi Arabia too deserve our full appreciation for what they are doing through OIC.
One thing however is missing in all these activities. They need a good public relations mechanism to highlight their work, thus changing the perception about the humanitarian gesture of the Ummah. This is important and this must be taken into consideration.
In CAR an increasing number of people are suffering due to deteriorating food situation and developments associated with the conflict taking place in that African country. —
