2018 proved to be a busy year with donations made to several non-governmental humanitarian organisations, in order for them to continue with their good works in line with our Yayasan’s objective to reduce human suffering and improve the quality of human life.
We are also very happy to report that our Yayasan sponsored children, Maisarah, Halimah & Muhammad Irfan, continue to bring us joy with their steady progress in their studies. Our wish as always for them, is that they grow up to be useful and responsible citizens of society and a credit to their mother, Puan Setyana Yahya, who sacrifices so much for them in the hope that they will have a better life.
Yayasan Tun Abdul Hamid, we are further pleased to report, has also embarked on an Empowerment initiative for the financially underprivileged, “Give me a day and I’ll teach you to fish” to equip them with new skills in order to increase their earning potential.
So far, three programmes have been carried out, involving a total of 25 participants of varying age groups and different cultural backgrounds. The skills imparted by expert practitioners in different vocational fields include Traditional baking & dessert creations, 3 Dimensional Jelly art creations as well as Decoupage & other craft making skills. While the emphasis is on learning, the programmes are also imbued with a sense of fun and as a form of therapy in assuaging the stresses of daily strife.
