    I wont get into my thoughts about maggots but on more serious note....those mentioned who have passed away what has been done to try and help their families and children? I would happily raise funds on this forum if it would help those who lost loved ones they depended on...i hope those they worked with would join in on this and help by providing contact details and a joint initiative to help those affected

    Thats a great idea... why don't you approach Taha and ask him for details of these individuals? I am sure that everyone can chip in, or at least sell an Oud if they have sizeable collections and donate the cash.

    I have spoken to Taha and he was very happy to accept payment for this people who need it - @Habz786 - can you do what is required. It would be a great gesture from the members of this forum, to help out the very people who risk their health to get Oud to us.

    I think individuals can contribute if they want by:

    1. Sending cash to the forum account - all donations will be made public for transparency purposes unless otherwise requested.
    2. Auctioning or selling an Oud
    3. Providing donations at the Oud Fayre on the 14th April

    At least a positive can come out of all this...

    By the way, I just want to make the following clear:

    1. This initiative is the sole idea of @Habz786
    2. Taha initially refused to get involved for fear of others saying that he is capitalising on this.
    3. The money will go DIRECTLY to the family of those affected and not via Taha.
    4. I feel quite nauseated that I even have to make the above clarifications. Yes, the online Oud world can be a bit smoke and mirrors at times, but this is a charitable initiative so please folks, keep your cynicism to yourselves on this one as I am putting my own name to this and have no agenda other than to help some people in need.

    ImperialOud will be happy to help in anyway required insha'Allah

    Without our hunters we would not have gotten as far and things would be so much more difficult.

    I’ve read elsewhere that Taha would rather not go ahead due to some of the comments that were made (and deleted by me) on this site. It’s a shame that people cannot remain silent when some good is being done. Not sure if this initiative will go ahead, as without Taha, we don’t even know who to forward the funds to.

    What a pitty! Im new to this forum as well as other Oud forums.
    I use alot of my time to help indigenoius people and natives and i feel this is so so important!
    What strikes me sometimes is how much people waste time and energy on spreading negativity.. gossiping about vendours and prices..
    Im sure that f. inst. VW or BMW are the greedy ones who steal millions and millions from people
    If there are someone who deserves this attention its the big companies like monte santo and oil monsters..
    May God bless us all and may peace grow in all our hearts, minds and bodies...
    afterall isnt that was Oud is all about?

    Gratefullness is the key to freedom

    Totally understand him Taha is a great guy and he would never take profit for himself from a campaign to the hunters. Nevertheless he has a business and a reputation to protect and at stake so Definitely i totally understand:)

    I have spoke to Taha and we will see if there is a way to get the money to those affected, right now its not looking possible, however we here as a community to support those affected as and when we find a way. Thank you all for your support :thumbsup:
