(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 happy to meet with young artists who created the artwork for the auction. Nur Iman orphanage founder Puan Sharima was also in attendance.
“We hope that this annual back-to-school initiative will better prepare and equip the children for a new school year,” commented 4Life Malaysia Sales and Marketing Director Dr. Tan Mae Lyn. “Thank you, 4Life leaders and distributors, for your commitment and support.”
