To make ends meet, these mothers often hold on to at least two jobs, while juggling their time to take care of their children and household matters. Hence, Baiwago Plus Café decided to collaborate with HOPE worldwide Malaysia, an internationally affiliated non-profit and non-religious Charity Organization to reach out to 50 mothers and single moms in Sentul. Total of 50 Cakes will be given away to all 50 mothers. These Mother’s Day Themed Cakes are specially made and sponsored by Baiwago as a gesture of appreciation to the mothers.
The mothers and staff volunteers gathered at Centre of HOPE worldwide Malaysia this afternoon for the Give Back event. “We are grateful towards Baiwago’s thoughtfulness in organizing this event to appreciate our mothers and single moms from the Sentul community. Their sacrifices and motherhood are something worth celebrated for,” said Katy Lee, the Executive Director of HOPE worldwide Malaysia. She added on that some of these mothers often work overtime to support the family finances and raising up their children tirelessly. Katy also shared about one of the mothers, Puan Haliza who lost her husband in a sudden tragedy three years ago, despite her grief and sadness, still being the pillar of strength for her 5 children, one of which is a special needs child who suffers from cerebral palsy.
Besides supporting these mothers through the Free Medical Clinic and Monthly Food Distribution Program, the children of these mothers also invited to attend a series of Education programs on Saturdays. HOPE worldwide Malaysia worked with volunteers from corporate sectors and campuses to reach out to these children aged from 6 to 17 years old. “We hope that we can cultivate a sustainable partnership with corporate companies such as Baiwago Plus Café to create a greater social impact for our communities,” said Katy. The public is welcomed to sign up as a volunteer to support the organization through their website: www.hopeww.org.my.
