Sydney, Australia - In response to the tragic events at Westfield Bondi Junction on April 13, 2024, Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Australia (AMYA), in partnership with Red Cross Lifeblood, is proud to announce the launch of the nationwide blood drive, “Faraz's Gift.” This initiative honors the heroic sacrifice of Faraz Tahir and commemorates the lives of the other five individuals lost in the tragedy. Their collective bravery and the profound loss felt by the community have galvanised a campaign to uphold their legacy through acts of kindness and life-saving blood donations.

Faraz Tahir, a beacon of courage and dedication, had sought refuge in Australia from persecution and quickly became an integral part of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. The “Faraz's Gift” campaign mirrors his dedication to helping others by encouraging people across the nation to donate blood and continue his legacy of compassion and bravery.

Adnan Qadir, President of AMYA, stated, "With ‘Faraz’s Gift,’ we honor Faraz and the five courageous individuals who lost their lives, by inviting Australians to help continue their legacy. This blood drive is a tribute to their spirit of community service and bravery. We deeply encourage everyone to join us in this life-saving mission as a profound way to remember and extend their protection and care."

Participants are invited to register for "Faraz's Gift" by searching the campaign name on the Red Cross Lifeblood website. The campaign is a nationwide call to action, emphasing the profound impact of collective goodwill and the difference every single donation can make.

"The Holy Quran beautifully articulates the value of life, stating, '...And whoso gave life to one, it shall be as if he had given life to all mankind...' (Quran 5:33). Faraz’s brave actions during this crisis personified this sacred verse, as his selflessness preserved the lives of others at the cost of his own," Adnan Qadir added.

"We invite all Australians to contribute to this significant endeavor. Each donation can save up to three lives, continuing the protective legacy that Faraz and the other victims left behind."
