COVID-19 Assistance (ongoing)
March 2020 to Present
The COVID-19 was declared a pandemic on 11 March 2020 by the World Health Organization (WHO). On 16 March 2020, the Prime Minister of Malaysia declared an unprecedented Movement Control Order (MCO) to commence from 18 March 2020 onwards.
To date, the country has gone through various stages of movement control order, introduced restrictions to businesses and travels and schools have been opened temporarily but have remained closed most of the time. Recently, the government announced a total lockdown from 1 June 2021 with further extensions if the situation does not improve.
Through our generous donors & wonderful volunteers, we have been providing food boxes, infant formula & female hygiene products to families from the Orang Asli and Orang Asal communities, B40 families, migrant workers and refugees.
Bridge to EDUCATION
We followed the school children from a remote Orang Asli village called Kampung Giring in Ranau, Sabah to school one day.
In the interior, going to school is not about climbing into a school bus for a ride to school. It is about climbing slopes and hiking in the thick forest, walking along the small path beside steep slopes beside river to school. They are confronted with the old broken bridge (left photo) each time. During the monsoon season, the river will swell and the children would not be able to go to school.
Our FIRST infrastructure project was to build a safe bridge to cross this river.
Now with the new bridge (right photo), they can safely walk to school. Nearby villagers can now visit each other thus bringing the community closer together.
