    Can anyone point me to an article that talks about what Muslim countries have done to help the Haitian people?

    Thanks.

    Senegal is a muslim nation (94%) and has offered to take in Hatian refuges.

    Senegal Offers Help to Haiti

    Posted 17,Jan. 2010

    Senegalese President, Abdoulaye Wade said Haitians were sons and daughters of Africa since Haiti was founded by slaves, including some thought to be from Senegal.

    "The President is offering voluntary repatriation to any Haitian that wants to return to their origin," said Mr Wade's spokesman, Mamadou Bemba Ndiaye.

    Tuesday's earthquake killed tens of thousands and left many more homeless.

    "Buildings have been reduced to rubble, the distribution of aid is slow, and people have been flooding out of the devastated capital, Port-au-Prince.

    "Senegal is ready to offer them parcels of land - even an entire region. It all depends on how many Haitians come," Mr Bemba Ndiaye said.

    I am a member of the Muslim American Society.

    Here is what our organization is doing to help in Haiti.

    But you will never see any of this on the news. :doubt:


    MAS Freedom Call to Action for Muslim Medical Volunteers to Haiti

    WASHINGTON, DC (MASNET) Jan. 15, 2010 – MAS Freedom (MASF), as the civic and human rights advocacy entity of the Muslim American Society (MAS), is making an urgent appeal for Health Professionals from the Muslim community willing to provide medical assistance to the people of Haiti.

    Currently Muslims across the United States are opening their hearts and resources on behalf of the Haitian people.

    Islamic Relief has committed a million dollars for relief work in Haiti and is currently preparing to send some of their field staff to Haiti via the Dominican Republic.

    Many other Muslims organizations and relief groups are also providing money and material assistance to the people of Haiti.

    Patel is a very common Indian last name.

    It's like the Smith or Jones of India.

    Turkish charity Humanitarian Relief Foundation, or İHH, is currently caring for 700 orphaned children in Haiti. Durmuş Aydın, the charity’s foreign relations officer, told the Daily News the İHH plans to bring the orphans to Turkey and care for them here.
    Aydın said both the Turkish foreign and interior ministries have given full support to the project and that they are only awaiting the Haitian government’s approval before proceeding.
    (...)
    Turkey’s consul general to the Dominican Republic, Antonio Horke Almayami, told the Daily News the adoption of Haitian children could be an option because more than 10,000 were left orphaned by the disaster.

    You would think that with all the oil and gas countries like Iran, Sudan, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE etc have, they would at least pitch in some oil. Yet they remain idle.

    Heck Israel, has done more for Haiti then they entire middle east and North Africa!:(

    Awe so nice, they get an offer to come to a country that is just about as shitty as pre-earthquake Haiti. Of course you dismiss the underlining insult. Senegal basically is calling Haiti not a real country.

    Senegal is also not known for its tolerance for Christians. The presecution would start the minute they hit the ground.

    This is an offer in jest and is meaningless. I bet 1 or 2 people at the most takes them up on it.

    Again no aid, doctors or anything else besides a meaningless offer.

    Nice try SunniNazi

    Patel is Indian, I think.
