Project Description :
HUGS (Helping Underprivileged Gain Strength)
HUGS projects focus on needy children in Malaysia especially those who are physically, mentally, health & financially challenged children like orphans and hard core poor to get on with their life and the need to have the love, care and support they needed.
Our main objective is to create awareness about their issue and support them holistically with love and care and to help them to have better future through professional medical treatment and education.
This programme which started in 2009 generally involved about 50% of the Club members serving 2 to 6 hours at any one time and has benefitted close to 100 people.
This project is carried out depending on needs and we usually spent RM200 to RM20,000 supported by individual and corporate sponsors.
To sustain, we source and collaborate with corporates, media stations, medical centres and other NGOs.
