Insaf Malaysia’s 10th Annivesary
This year we are celebrating our 10th Anniversary.
This journey began in the aftermath of my missions to China, after the Sichuan earthquake - I knew only two things: I wanted to help people and I wanted to make a difference. Not an easy task when you are a one man band with not too much cash in your pockets. But on my side I had perseverance, strength of character and a healthy dose of lunacy.
I cannot deny that the journey was arduous to start with. Back in 2008, we could not even register Insaf Malaysia as a society (ROS) so we registered as a company (ROC). That did not help us much because people were reluctant to donate to a “company” but within a year we got our ROS registration and we started to soar.
Our involvement with the orang asal proved to be an enormous blessing which brought us more and more work giving donors the confidence to entrust us with their money. And those funds were carefully used for more projects than ever – Insaf Malaysia Foodbank and Insaf Malaysia’s kitchen, disaster relief work in Nepal, Philippines, Indonesia and the east coast of Malaysia, welfare work in Nepal, Bangladesh, Philippines and Indonesia, welfare work in inner city schools in the Klang Valley and Selangor (lunch, prescription glasses, uniforms, bag and shoes) and of course the building of more and more houses for the various orang asal communities of Peninsular Malaysia – we are happy to announce that to date we have completed 170 houses.
To conclude let me reiterate that the achievements of an organization are the results of the combined efforts of every individual, volunteers and donors in particulars!
Happy 10th Anniversary!
