29th of November 2014 marked the last charity event for BeCause. Our committee capped the year by organizing a trip for 36 orphans and abandoned children to watch a stage performance ‘Lumi Air’ at Sunway Lagoon & Resort. The children were all from New Hope Rumah Safiyyah. To ensure it was a fun filled outing for them, goodie bags and meals were also provided for them.
Walk for Health with NASAM
BeCause team comprising members, friends, as well as staff from Holiday Travel & Tours Sports Club make up a group of about 50, participated in the Nasam Walk for Health on 19th October 2014. At Lake Titiwangsa. This event by Nasam was to create awareness amongst participants about stroke, the most common causes and the avenue available for rehabilitation.
Invitation to Visit the Alzheimer Disease Foundation Malaysia (ADFM)
On 4th September 2014, BeCause members attended ADFM’s Open Day upon an invitation by President Dato Jeffery Ng. It was a busy day at the day care centre. About 100 guests and sponsors turned up. The centre provides activities and social interaction for those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Our members were touched by them as they and their families turned up to take part in the day’s singing event. What is something we take for granted requires monumental effort by those who have lost their memory and power of recall.The centre also have programs conducted by qualified staff aimed at improving memory or to prevent it from worsening.
We did it – 240,000 meals by 600 volunteers in 6 hours!
