Hello, welcome to my fundraising page :)
I live in Malaysia. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, everyday life in my country has been severely affected and movements have been restricted. Our economy will likely weaken in the near future, but the citizens here are doing quite fine with government financial aid.
However the situation is not as fortunate in other countries. Zambia is one of Africa’s poorest countries, ranking 165th out of 177 countries, with over two thirds living below the poverty line. In Zambia, 62% of the population is living off of less than $2 a day (HabitatforHumanity, 2017). With restrictions in movements due to the pandemic, their food supply is threatened to deplete within a week.
This somehow reminds me of my high school days, when the financial situation in my family wasn't doing too great, and I needed to constantly borrow money from my friends to have lunch, until I got my pocket money (which came irregularly). Although my situation back then is nothing compared to what the Zambians are facing now, I somewhat understand what they are going through. I found them through the United Nations Online Volunteering website (https://www.onlinevolunteering.org/en/youth-press-and-development-organisation/online-fundraising-campaign-covid-19-emergency-response), and I felt the need to help them with their predicament.
Malalo Sports Foundation (MSF), an NGO affiliated with the American Overseas Medical Aid Association (AOMAA) is serving the local community by integrating children into sports activities to promote positive community behaviour, and raising awareness of the community on poverty and HIV/AIDS. MSF now needs food supplements to support the students and their families.
With your help, we can help support the children in Zambia to weather through this pandemic. Most importantly, we can bring them hope for the future. Help me support this NGO and the community they are serving by making a donation. The process is fast, easy, and secure. I truly appreciate any support you can provide. It will benefit a great cause!
- By donating just USD5 today you can help to support a family of six for a day.
- By donating USD35 today you can help to support a family for an entire week.
If you can't make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn.
Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page!
Thank you so much for your time and generosity. :)
