Last update: 30/12/2016

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 30 (Bernama) -- Three students from HELP International School helped raise RM 1,057l for Suriana Welfare Society Malaysia through bake sale.

The young trio behind this selfless act are Heidi Tan, Sarah Ng and Eumelia Chew, all aged 9, said the charity organisation in a statement.

They girls raised the money by baking cakes, cookies and other scrumptious delicacies to be sold to their fellow classmates, teachers and parents. They even worked through their lunch breaks in their effort to contribute to the less fortunate kids.

Chairman of Suriana Welfare Society Malaysia, James Nayagam said, "We are so proud of these kids. They've proven to us that age really is just a number, because at their age, they're so matured-thinking.

We hope that their action will cause a chain reaction so that many other children will rise up and make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate," said Nayagam.

CERTIFICATES OF APPRECIATION

The trio were awarded with certificates to appreciate their tireless effort and selfless act to raise money to be contributed to the society to help other children of their age that are not so privileged and to transform their lives.

Suriana Welfare Society Malaysia is a nationally registered non-profit organisation that was founded back in 2011 and has been actively involved in promoting and protecting children's rights.

Its activities are overseen by a team of dedicated and professional social workers, paediatric consultants, teachers, clinical psychologists and registered counsellors that have years of experience with child-related social issues.
