Garden International School has had a long-standing tradition of supporting its local community, and the pandemic has certainly not curtailed that. This year’s Mufti Charity Week generated both a large amount of money and provisions to be shared across five core local charities.
Voted for by the students, The Lost Food Project, EPIC Homes, Make a Wish, and the Malaysian Association for the Blind will all benefit from the collective efforts across the GIS community, in addition to the school’s own well-established GIS Street Feeding project.
The week beginning November 22, 2021 enabled the school community to learn more about the charities they were supporting, in addition to giving time, effort and resources to enriching the lives and experiences of those in need. Congratulations to everyone who got involved; together we managed to raise RM17,161 and send much-needed food supplies to the KL homeless and urban poor communities and to our refugee friends.
