100km for Refugee Winteraid Appreciation & Sharing

Description
March for Solidarity – A 100km Winter Aid Effort for Refugees in Losvos, Greece

100km of steps, each taken with etched memories of the pains of Syrian refugees he personally witnessed back in Dec 2015 led Mohd Tahar Jumaat (TJ) to realize this mission. From 18 to 20 January 2017, TJ had powered through a strenuous walk across Singapore with modest intent to fulfil doing what he personally can for global citizens in need. The March for Solidarity – A 100km Winter Aid Effort for Refugees in Losvos, Greece was ignited for TJ to walk with mere necessities on him and without any stocked supply of food, water nor money.

In the effort to also raise awareness on hunger issues in Singapore, TJ also walked an additional 3km around the Taman Jurong and Boon Lay estate in support of Free Food For All Limited (a local charity dedicated towards addressing food sustenance condition amongst needful Singaporeans).

For both his walks, TJ managed to share real-time moments of empathetic thoughts on the plight of unheard communities that have experienced it worse with daily struggles of not having food. His effort would not be possible without the support and contribution of many that had spurred him on and donated to the cause. Remembering their kind hearts and gestures, TJ hope to meet everyone that has made this mission possible at an appreciation event after his trip to Losvos, Greece. During the event, TJ will share how he had embarked on this mission, along with photos and videos direct from the refugee camp.
