A Big "Thank You" to Berjaya Group for holding such a meaningful event! The founder of Berjaya Group Tan Sri Dato' Seri Vincent Tan did not just to host a day for celebration, but rather took this opportunity to contribute back to the community by inviting 28 charity organizations in Malaysia to organize a charity bazaar to raise funds.
Each and every charity organization were given a booth to publicize their programs and sell things for fund raising.
Despite of that, Berjaya Group as well prepared an amount of donation for these 28 charity organizations, and RM 95,000.00 were donated to HOPE worldwide Malaysia.

16 Feb 2011, Food Distribution @ Orang Asli Village, Kampung Pos Woh
Right after joining the MY Reading Program on 15 Feb, the next day, we and the group of Bahrain Students made our trip to a Orang Asli Village called, Kampung Pos Woh, located near to Tapah town, and about 40 to 50 kilometres away to Cameron Highlands. It is a very beautiful place with attractive nature, such as Water Falls, greeneries and different kind of flora species.
It was a bright sunny day, and joining us we have Joey from HOPE worldwide Penang and a group of volunteers from Sungai Petani as well.
It was a great experience and we were all sweat under the hot sun, bringing loads of groceries and some clothings for the villagers. Yet, it was just so fulfilling and refreshing.
For the Bahrain Students, they all mentioned that this is something very special in their lifetime. To able to be a person to give and contribute those who are in need.
Let's pack up the groceries!
Off we begin our journey to distribute the groceries and clothing to the villagers!
It was a hot weather and I was so amazed when I able to went in one of the houses to visit the family. Inside the house, the air was just cooling, and they were not using any air-conditioner nor fan.

I remembered how grateful were the villagers towards out act of love, they never thought of there were people from the city would come and reach out to them.
What a day with this fruitful mission for myself, and what more for the Bahrain students who used to come from a wealthy country? I believe this was an eye-wide-opened experience for them too!
Right after this trip, the Bahrain students were preparing their way fly back to their country. It was indeed a great time together with you guys and hope to see you guys again~!
