Angkasawan returns from GAZA

Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor returned safely from Gaza 3 days ago on his second humanitarian mission there. According to him the situation this time was much worse compared to his first visit in January 2009. He said that there were bombings and gunshots everywhere and they had to evacuate after only spending 4 days in Gaza. One of the buildings that got bombed was located some 400 metres from the hotel where they stayed in. He stated that his mission this time was to spearhead the building of a paediatric hospital and maternity ward, which requires RM30 million. He is now trying to raise funds for the said hospital project.
