Shabaz Ali Appeal - Scotland Says NO To Racism

This appeal is for a young Syrian refugee who sustained life threatening injuries after a racist attack in Edinburgh on May 3rd 2018. 25 year old Shabaz Ali was trying to protect his young female cousin when he was stabbed 6 times in the chest and stomach. His father states that his sons’ attacker shouted “Why are you still here, why are you not back in your own country?” as they struck his son. The family fled Syria to live in Scotland. Ali was working as a barber in Portobello, and staying in a Council hostel as he looked for a new home. His cousin was also living in the hostel. In July 2018, an 18 year old man pled guilty to racially aggravated attempted murder. We hope that with this appeal, all refugees can be assured that in Scotland we show Zero Tolerance to Racism.

100% of your donation will go directly to Shabaz to help him recover and rebuild his life in Scotland. Please give here, or go to www.positiveactionh.org/donate for other ways to give. For Paypal, donate to donate@positiveactionh.org. Messages of support for family to home@positiveactionh.org. Facebook updates - Facebook.com/PositiveActionH . All gift aid collected from this appeal will be used to help survivors of racism hate crime.
