Immediate help for Jamal!

A few weeks ago I spoke about Abu Jamal case (check here), unfortunately Jamal’s cancer condition has gotten worse. He is almost in a state of COMA at the King Hussein Cancer Centre. But the last attempt to save 21 year old Jamal life is to provide him with O- blood and pallettes. Therefore if you can donate your blood please head to the hospital to the patient “Jamal Abu Salem

As for the family, they are sitting in the dark since they have no electritcty at home in this winter weather.  The dad can’t have a steady work while spending all the time besides his son.

The family needs to pay:

  • 250JDs fine for the electricity company
  • 75JDs to pay the pending bills

Please help immediately. Receipts will be provided

    My name is Herlinde Matthys. I’m a Flemish student at the University of Ghent (Belgium). I’m following a Master after Master Conflict and Development (I already have a Master diploma as a Communication Scientist, specialization Journalism). I will spend 5 weeks in Jordan, Amman (from the 31th of March till the 2nd of May) for my thesis. I’m going to write my thesis about new media and social development, with a case study about Queen Rania. I will investigate how new media tries to mobilise people and influence politics and development. Especially how Queen Rania uses new media to draw attention to her passion: education. How online activism can change the offline world. Is it possible to have an interview with you, because you are really an important social activist who uses this new media, in the month that I’m staying in Amman? It would be an honour for me and a real value for my thesis.
    Thank you very much.
