The wrong team

Partisanship is so bad in our community that people will shun you just for supporting the wrong humanitarian relief organisation.

We only support Human Appeal. We only support SKT Welfare. We only support Islamic Relief. We only support Muslim Hands.

Why? Can’t we do good through any of these conduits, according to need at a particular time?

Do we have to behave like childish fanboys and groupies, idolising some incredible brand? All of these organisations are fallible, but they are doing their best in the circumstances.

We should be able to support different people in different places at different times, using the most appropriate tools to meet those particular needs without thinking to ourselves, “This is not my team.”
