"I am because we are"

An anthropologist proposed a game to the kids in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that who ever got there first, won the sweet fruits. 

When he told them to run they all took each others hands a
nd ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats.

When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said:
''UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?''

'UBUNTU' in the Xhosa culture means: "I am because we are"

''None of you [truly] believes until he loves for his brother that which he loves for himself''
(Prophet Muhammed salAllahu alayhi wasalam).

UBUNTU! Lets END hunger!
