FATA Peace Trust Initiator Luke Sends Letter To Pakistan PM
Dr. Luke Simmons, a great peace activist of Australia and initiator of FATA Peace Trust has sent a letter to Prime Minister of Pakistan seeking his help for providing some relief to people of tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border.
"To the most Grand Vizier Yousaf Raza Gillani and ministers.
Greetings and many blessings to you.
My name is Luke Simmons. I have been requested to write to you this day upon the 8th July 2010.
I am writing to learn about the travel protocols and current situation within the FATA. I have been asked to visit the area by tribesmen and the media in the region.
I wish to learn more in relation to the security and safety of the area and the protocols if one were to try to enter the area. For the moment I have told
them that perhaps this is not possible due to my health concerns. I wished to learn more from the Government and make an informed secure decision.
In May of 2010 I was named "The Voice of Peace" by an organization named Voice For Peace within the region - specifically The Bajaur Agency.
Since 2008 I had been trying to launch a charity campaign for the people of the area. This was put on hold until recently when previous promises
made by organizational representatives withdrew from their promises of aid in relation to one of my other projects. The procurement and raising of capital unfortunately was put on hold.
Please find inside this letter a document containing a Press Kit in relation to the work I had been doing. I had been developing an idea to create a peace trust for FATA that would provide incentives for individuals and elders whom wished to join the peace trust, create and represent the
ideologies of peace within the region.
Certain individuals I had spoken with believed that financial aid from other countries administrations may support funding such a trust once established providing peace incentive opportunities.Whether these are true, logical statements I am uncertain. Myself personally was most interested in raising Humanitarian funds to assist the area.
A Global Launch campaign to raise funds for the area, as you shall see within the document attached - hopefully this will provide aid to the area.
If the area is unsafe as I assume and the campaign is successful perhaps it is safer if I were to send whatever accumulated to the area, and reside inmy current location.
I write in relation to seeking your counsel and great wisdom in relation to the matters shared. The documents attached shall describe more details and wish only to serve.
