Don’t stop giving love

VOLUNTEERS and well-wishers who have been helping and donating to charitable organisations have been urged to continue their support, even in times of slow economic growth.

National Autism Society of Malaysia’s (Nasom) Penang centre adviser Dr Sim Joo Seng said that the number of volunteers and donations had dropped in recent times.

“I urge those who have volunteered and donated to these organisations in the past to continue showing their extension of love to those who are in need,” he said in his speech during the ‘World Children’s Day and Chefs Cook For Charity’ celebration at the Municipal Youth Park.

The event was held in conjunction with World Children’s Day. It was organised by Nasom in collaboration with the Penang Sports Council and Chefs Association Malaysia (Penang Chapter).

Visitors were entertained to performances by children. There were also a jumble sale, food counters, a mini petting zoo and a carriage ride.

Pertubuhan Wanita Mutiara president and Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s wife Betty Chew launched the event on Saturday.

Penang Sports Council director Mohamed Akbar Mustapha and Penang Municipal Council president Patahiyah Ismail were also present.
