MANZA’s Christmas Charity Bazaar

MANZA is very proud to once again be holding our annual Christmas Charity Bazaar on Sunday 24th November at Bukit Kiara Equestrian Centre, Off Jalan Damansara, 60000 Kuala Lumpur, from:11am – 4pm.

This is always such a popular event and with Christmas just over five weeks away, it’s a great way to stock up on your Xmas presents whilst helping some of MANZA’s very worthy Charities.

We have a jumping castle for the kids, and amazing donated items for our Tombola this year, so don’t miss that!

There will be something for everyone – a great family day out!

We have a plethora of stalls selling a whole range of wares from jewellery, to spices, books, cakes, greetings cards, handmade bags, candies, kids’ shoes, personal care luxuries, Xmas Decorations and the list goes on!

If you are able to volunteer to bake cakes, pies, muffins, whatever is your forte in the kitchen, for sale on our cake stall, MANZA will be incredibly grateful. Please contact Martha at [email protected] if you are able to help out, or pop into MANZA House and talk to Shirley.

Come along and get in the festive spirit! Here are a few photos from last year to whet your appetite!

RC Deaf Mission Malaysia

One of the Charities that MANZA is very proud to work with is RC Deaf Mission Malaysia, founded by Agnes and Mario Peter in 2006. The Charity seeks to provide career opportunities for deaf people in Malaysia and change the perception amongst the general community of people who are hearing impaired. MANZA is a long time supporter of this very worthy cause.

Recently they have relocated their office and opened a RC Deaf Café at No 55G, Jalan SS 25/2, Taman Bukit Emas, 47301 Petaling Jaya, Selangor Darul Ehsan.

If you are in that part of the world, please do pop in for coffee or try one of their delicious meals and let them know you are from MANZA!

Manza Charities and Crown Relocation work together for RKKA children

A big MANZA “thank you” to Kathy Richards who generously donated a fantastic wonderful great big sofa for one of our MANZA charities. As it happened, Rumah Kanak Kanak Angels (RKKA) has had “new sofa” on their wish list for a long, long time and were very happy indeed to accept this new (if slightly second hand) sofa.

And how, exactly, would MANZA get said fantastic wonderful great big sofa to Rumah Kanak Kanak Angels? Hmmmmm. Well, advertiser and supporter Crown Relocation to the rescue!

Penwiona Lee, on behalf of Crown Relocation, provided the truck for both the pickup and delivery of the sofa. Penwiona also graciously took some photos for us and reported that, although all the children at Angels were at school when the sofa arrived, Belinda (of RKKA) commented that, at last “the children would finally have a comfortable sofa to sit on!”

In fact, they’re now enjoying their brand new, slightly used, fantastic wonderful great big sofa as you read this article.

So thanks to Kathy, the good folks at Crown Relocation and to our newest staff photographer, Penwiona, from all the kids at RKKA!

Happiness Centre in need of funds

The Happiness Centre Melaka, visited by 5 MANZA ladies last Wednesday is in great need of financial help.

The centre is currently caring for 31 children and young adults who have severe physical disabilities, many have multiple disabilities including cerebral palsy, spasticity, intellectual disabilities, blindness, speech impairment and mental illness.

Many have been abandoned by their family or are unable to be cared for by their family. The centre receives no Government assistance and relies on donations to continue to provide optimal care for its residents.

Donations can be made by bank transfer to Pusat Kanak Kanak Terencat Akal Bahagia, Public Bank, account number 3108010508

The happiness centre is also MANZA’s charity for fundraising for the months of June, July and August.
