Charity Support Withdrawn

The Charity Dinner shown above took place on Sunday 24 January 2016 in Bradford, was considered a success, and over £7,000 was pledged in support of three causes in Pakistan.  On all promotional literature it clearly stated donations should be paid direct into the account of the WorldMAC Foundation, and details of this are also shown above.  It then came to the attention of the WorldMAC Foundation that cash donations had being collected in person and not paid into the stipulated account.  The first of the three images above show a cheque in the name of WorldMAC being presented by Shamin Lyn to Ch. Azhar Mehmood of the Khari Sharif Welfare Society concerned with forced marriages, and this was a complete fake as the WorldMAC Foundation did not authorize this payment, the cheque had no value, and was nothing more than a cheap publicity stunt that could be construed as deception.

The second image shows £1,000 in cash collected personally by Shamin Lyn but this was never paid into the WorldMAC Foundation account as originally agreed, and the WorldMAC Foundation was not informed about this, nor was it provided with the names and amounts pledged on the evening of the event, despite numerous requests for this information, an action that has since been considered by some to be embezzlement. 

The third image shows Shamin Lyn handing over the £1,000 in cash to a chef at a Bradford restaurant in the presence of a relative of Ch. Azhar Mehmood.  The information received was that this chef was visiting Pakistan to hand the money personally to Ch. Azhar Mehmood, and in a country renown for terrorist activity, this type of cash transaction is contrary to strict money laundering regulations. 

At the time these images were taken only £1,282 had been received by the WorldMAC Foundation, and added to the £1,000 collected personally by Shamin Lyn this was a total of £2,282.  Considering three causes were to be supported by this event the £1,000 given to Ch. Azhar Mehmood was almost half of the donations collected at that time, and should not have exceeded £760.68p which was around one third.  In addition, any donation should have been transferred directly into the account of the Khari Sharif Welfare Society so it could be correctly recorded and shown to be fully transparent. 

The second cause to be supported was the Mehria Welfare Society concerned with acid and burns victims in Pakistan, and although to date no money from the event has been sent to this society as far as is known, it has been discovered it has no bank account and in the past all money raised for this cause was sent by Shamin Lyn to the personal account of her cousin.  These actions and methods used to send public donations are open to serious questions and are not conducive to the way in which the WorldMAC Federation operates. 

The £1,282 collected by the WorldMAC Foundation was transferred by Express Bank Transfer on 04 May 2016 to the third supported cause in Pakistan connected with the promotion of sport and tuition by world-class instructors in order to assist Pakistan in competing at international levels, in full agreement and with the support of the Punjab Sports Board.  As far as is known there is still around £5,000 in pledges to collect but the WorldMAC Foundation wants no further involvement with either the Khari Sharif Welfare Society that hires expensive hotels for its promotions and provides opulent lifestyles for its employees, probably paid for by public donations, or the Mehria Welfare Society that does not even have its own bank account.  Shamin Lyn is infamous for her 100% donations but  where these actually go is questionable.

Chinese Lanterns

Often associated with festivals, paper lanterns are also hung outside businesses to attract attention.  Airborne paper lanterns are called sky lanterns, and are often released into the night sky for aesthetic effect at lantern festivals.  In China, paper lanterns can be classified into 5 distinct classes which are: the Baby's Bottom that is the miniature class often used in modern times with Christmas lights.  The second is the Rolling Paper, the tall, cylindrical lanterns associated with restaurants and bars.  The third is the Tomato Light also known as Big Red that is the classic round mid-size lantern. The fourth is the Crystal Magic made in different shaped geometric lamps constructed of many square and triangular panes, and the last is known as Buddha's Gastronomy that are the large lanterns used to decorate temples and for show at festivals.  Also, there are the traditional Chinese lanterns, primarily red but also in other colours, which can be round or capsule-shaped and are usually seen in stores, at temples, or during festivals. The colour red (fire) traditionally symbolizes good fortune and joy.
