Dear fellow friends, families, and supporters,
Thank you to your kind support, I have now managed to reach my fundraising target of RM10,000! I couldn’t have made it without your loving and kind support, so a big thank you to all of you whom have supported me. Your donation means a lot to the team here at Great Vision Charity as this will ensure we are able to continue running our 2 main programs to help out underprivileged families and needy students in 2021.
That said, our #HarapanMulia campaign target has not ended yet, as the main target is to raise RM500k for Great Vision Charity. For those who are still keen to support our campaign, you may send your love and support to our other fundraisers or to our main campaign here.
Thank you once again!
It has been an unforgettable seven years journey for me at Persatuan Harapan Mulia, from planning and setting up the various charity programs, to executing, implementing, and fine tuning each of these programs with my team and colleagues to ensure that they reach out to our target beneficiaries as intended. I have learnt about the plights of the B40 urban poor communities living in various government low cost Projek Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) flats, where half of these low-income families experience being unable to afford sufficient food and with 40% of these households being children, according to a study by UNICEF. That is where our Shopping Buddy program comes in, to provide short-term intervention to end hunger and ensure access by these families in vulnerable situations living in PPR to safe, nutritious, and sufficient food, especially now, more so in our current landscape where we all need to weather both the Covid-19 pandemic and economic uncertainties. While interacting with these families, we also took the opportunity to impart some useful knowledge on good practices in managing their financials.
My journey also gave me the chance to interact with a number of tertiary education students from underprivileged backgrounds, where through our Didik-Kasih EduCare program, I have seen some of the students grown from a receiver of aid, to become a giver and role model, inspiring their younger brothers and sisters from various children’s homes to study hard and one day step into an institution of higher learning, graduating from the course of their dreams, and finally contributing back to the society. To see these students being able to conduct charity projects of their own that is usually related to their field of studies, under the guidance of our social workers, and surpassing their own expectations when they have successfully completed their respective charity projects is truly a joy. They have, among others, brought children from various charity homes to places such as the KLIA hangar, Rapid KL LRT depot, and Media Prima’s television studio, with the aim to inspire these children to be in the industry that they are studying for.
The blood, sweat, and tears has been worthwhile. But the current Covid-19 pandemic has brought with it many uncertainties that impacted funding to our programs, as well as the target beneficiaries that we are serving. That is why I am now seeking your support to ensure that we can secure enough funds to be able to continue to do the work that we do in serving the needy. Through this crowdfunding effort, I am looking at raising RM10,000.00 for Persatuan Harapan Mulia that goes towards supporting the programs, activities, and needs of the organization. I sincerely hope to be able to garner your support in donating for this initiative, and thereafter share about it to enlist more supporters from your friends and families. Every bit counts!
Your support would mean a lot to me, to the team at Persatuan Harapan Mulia, and most of all, to the target beneficiaries that we are supporting via our charity programs.
