To Whom it may concern,

Dear Sir or Madam,

I trust this message finds you well. I am writing to you on behalf of the Mona Relief Organization, whose interests my office represents.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the work the Mona Relief Organization ( has carried out in Yemen.

A Yemen-based NGO, the Mona Relief Organization has, for the past year, run against Saudi Arabia’s blockade, determined to bring hope and humanitarian aid, to those brave souls who have withstood Riyadh’s aggression.

I don’t need to tell you of the horrors and infamies the kingdom perpetrated against Yemen in the name of control, and imperialism. But beyond this neo-imperial war lies an agenda few have dared speak of: religious genocide. Northern Yemen has been targeted for its religious tradition: Zaidism, has stood in opposition of Wahhabism.

Under Riyadh’s orders Yemen has been blockaded, and isolated – its people have been made to starve under the patronage of the United Nations, and Western powers, so that the Resistance, led by AnsarAllah could be destroyed.

Yemen faces a genocide because millions of its people have remained true to the oath of allegiance, they long ago gave to our Imam Ali. It is because Yemen has walked in the footsteps of our beloved Imams that the House of Saud is attempting today to annihilate an entire people. Today I seek help where I know it will be offered.

While Yemenis are strong, and resilient, they cannot possibly defeat this evil alone. They should not have to either.

The Mona Relief Organization has worked tirelessly to bring humanitarian aid to those areas most affected by war. Its volunteers have defied air raids, Saudi-bought mercenaries, and al-Qaeda militants to reach cut off communities and stand true to their duty of care.

Because the Mona Relief Organization has time and time again refused foreign patronage, foreign funding and foreign infiltration, the organization has solely relied on outside donations.

My office, Veritas-Consulting has campaigned and raised funds so that Yemenis could get the help they so deserve.

I will kindly ask you today to consider allowing us to run an advert on your website so that people will learn of Yemen’s plight.

Press TV has already stood by Yemen by allowing for the truth to shine forth. I am asking you today to call on your viewers and your readers to donate to the Mona Relief Organization.

We are looking for powerful, and generous sponsors, we need your support.

I would ask you as well to consider allowing a short video appeal to be aired on your network ahead of Ramadan.

I understand that my request is rather unconventional, but we are not living conventional times. We are living unjust times, and our faith is being targeted. It is in such times of hardship that we ought to draw closer together, and stand for, and by each other. I understand the extent of my request, but Yemen requires drastic actions on our parts.

Before you answer I beg you to consider the millions of lives which quite literally are dependent on your help.

Feel free to get in touch with whatever questions you may have.
