(December 2016) A back-to-school event was held at the Nur Iman Orphanage in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Over 20 children were excited to receive new school supplies, backpacks, uniforms, and stationery. Several bunk beds were donated so children could sleep in their own bed. Plus, the orphanage received new cooking equipment to make meal preparation more efficient.
All of this was made possible by generous distributor donations at the Foundation 4Life “Art by Precious Little Hands” auction during the 4Life Malaysia and Singapore 2016 United Convention. During the auction, 11-year-old Siti Solelah and 14-year-old Khairul Ridzuan, students at Nur Iman, expressed their gratitude for Foundation 4Life scholarships that make their educational opportunities possible.
About 25 people attended the donation event, including distributors and orphanage staff members. Gold International Diamonds Salim Raghavan and Noor Azlina, Rasid Kamisan and Hasrunita, and Norazizah Ruslan attended. They were h...

Foundation 4Life has supported the Ace Lighthouse Academy since 2014, with past donations of cabinets, storage racks, and shoes, plus groceries and 4Life products every month.
The most recent donation of five toilets and one large hand washing station will improve sanitation and give kids a healthy environment in which to live and learn. “The children really enjoy the new bathroom facilities,” commented an academy caregiver. “They no longer have to wait in long lines to use the bathroom and can shower in more sanitary conditions. This will improve their hygiene and confidence.”
In addition, 4Life products were donated by the 4Life Malaysia office. As part of the ribbon-cutting event, the children residing at the academy were treated to Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizzas, and treats contributed by Foundation 4Lif...
(November 2015) During the 4Life® Malaysia and Singapore convention, President and CEO Steve Tew presented a “Making Education Possible” Foundation 4Life donation check to Nur Iman Orphanage Founder Madam Sharimah. Nur Iman orphanage in Kuala Lumpur offers education, care, love, and security to children by giving them a good start in life. Foundation 4Life provides school supplies to the orphanage and assists with tuition and uniform costs. And in October of 2015, Foundation 4Life and local distributors donated a van so the kids could travel safely to school.
Two children from Nur Iman—Siti Solehah and Mohammad Azif Saidon—were invited to the convention. They thanked 4Life distributors for the opportunity to receive an education. Madam Sharimah accepted a flower bouquet from 4Life executives for the service she provides for children in the orphanage. She said, “Thank you, Foundation 4Life and 4Life, for supporting the children of Nur Iman.”
(December 2014) Severe flooding displaced hundreds of thousands of people throughout Malaysia and Thailand. The northeastern Malaysian states of Kelantan, Terengganu, and Pahang were particularly hard hit, with dozens of deaths due to downpour and flash flooding. With a 4Life office in Kelantan, Foundation 4Life teamed up with corporate employees and local distributors to provide immediate support to 4Life family members in need.
“Electricity is down in most areas and water supplies are compromised,” commented 4Life Malaysia General Manager Cher Lyn Tan. “The entire region has been devastated. Telephone lines are down and the city infrastructure is at risk. We know that the homes of 4Life distributors have been hit. Right now, a food supply channel is critical.”
In response to the natural disaster, employees and distributors met at the 4Life Malaysia office outside Kuala Lumpur to prepare food deliveries. They sent 850 kilograms (nearly 2,000 pounds) of canned food, bread, water, m...
(May 2014) 4Life® distributors and 4Life Malaysia staff members joined the Foundation 4Life team for a visit to the Kuala Lumpur Aquarium with children from the Nur Iman orphanage. 4Life provided the children with goodie bags that included treats and snacks for the bus ride. The children were so excited at first that they could hardly take in all of the marine life. But, they were soon captivated by the animals and exhibits, especially the live fish feeding session and the giant octopus.
After the outing, the group returned to the orphanage for a catered fried chicken lunch, a guitar sing-a-long, and games, including the Malaysian/Thai game sepak takraw. This special day was a treasured opportunity for the children to experience the commitment and love of the 4Life family.
Foundation 4Life provides ongoing support to the orphanage, such as back-to-school supplies and funds to assist with tuition and school uniforms. The visit was a special treat for 4Life distributors, who saw firs...
(May 2014) Foundation 4Life has initiated a partnership with a group home in the mountains of Malaysia for children from extremely underprivileged families. The home is run by a generous couple who cashed in their retirement in order to provide brighter futures and better lives for more than 40 children. At the home, the children are given food, clothing, and a safe place to live while they receive an education.
4Life® team members, including Gold International Diamonds Richard and Nancy Quek, visited the home to donate food, sleeping pads, and other furniture. “We are excited to be here today and to have so many group members involved in this partnership,” commented Richard and Nancy. “We look forward to visiting again and we hope to bring even more 4Life distributors.”
The home receives limited donations, so the owners are extremely grateful for the ongoing monthly donation of groceries from Foundation 4Life. The donations provide the children with fresh fruits and vegetables, so...
