An Appeal to the fountain pen community to come together in this moment of grief and extend our support to humanity.
The loss of near and dear ones is always heart wrenching. The voids they leave behind can never be filled. Sorrow that becomes numbing when it is compounded by helplessness. When, one has to let go, secure in the knowledge that the lives could have been saved, if only…
One of our own, Yusuf Mansoor has just lost his Mother and Sister. Loss, that is as personal to him and his family as it is to us in the fountain pen community. Yusufji, we join you in your moment of grief. May the Almighty gather the departed souls in His arms and bless them with everlasting peace. May He give you and your family the strength to cope.
The pain is unbearable because of the situation in which Yusufji’s Mother and Sister passed away – without either the medical assistance that they desperately needed, or the supply of Oxygen that may have helped them to live. That, they were not the only ones to suffer this inhuman fate in these trying times is of no consequence. What is of consequence is what we do to ensure that no other life is lost in a manner so gruesome. That no son or brother has to go though what Yusufji had to bear.
Yusuf Mansoor has started an initiative muster resources so that O2 concentrators can be acquired and made available to the people in need and has appealed to all for their generosity.
Sale proceeds of all SAY.FP products (genuine leather fountain pen cases of various shapes, sizes and colours) will be used for the purpose. Alternatively, contributions can also be made directly.
