Gaza Fundraising Charity Dinner and 1Unity Malaysia Ambassador Search Cultural Fusion 2014

As a show of care and support to Gaza and the unity of Malaysia, Mon Space Group sponsored a fundraising charity dinner in conjunction with the 1Unity Malaysia Ambassador Search Cultural Fusion 2014 (1UMAS). The event was graced and supported by Yang Teramat Mulia Raja Dato’ Seri Yong Sofia binti Almarhum Sultan Azlan Shah, the youngest daughter of the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah.

The dinner was held on 4 October 2014, at the grand ballroom of Vivatel Hotel. To celebrate the ethnic diversity and highlight the cultural richness of Malaysia, the event showcased performances by various cultures in Malaysia, including Malay, Indian and Dayak traditional dances. Yang Teramat Mulia Raja Dato’ Seri Yong Sofia binti Almarhum Sultan Azlan Shah also gave a speech addressing the Gaza crisis, calling for all who were present to show their support for an important humanitarian cause. She also applauded the organisers for celebrating Malaysia’s diverse ethnic cultures.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Ak Marketing for giving us the opportunity to give back to the community, and to stand in solidarity with the people of Gaza who are afflicted by war.

According to the UN Office for the Coordinations of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the 2014 Israel-Palestine conflict killed 2205 Palestinians, including at least 1483 civilians[1]. There is also an ongoing need for humanitarian aid to be sent into the conflict zone. Civilians in Gaza are direly in need of proper sanitation, nutrition and other basic welfare. Children are born into a climate of fear and desperation, often suffering from severe mental trauma and physical malnutrition. Mon Space Group recognises its social responsibilities, and we felt compelled to be part of the effort in alleviating the suffering of Palestinians. In the words of Tun Dato’ Seri Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad: silence is not a choice for Gaza. We have the ability to give to charity, and we will make good use of that.

Besides caring for humanitarian crises overseas, I also strongly believe in supporting local causes, especially one that concerns every single Malaysian. 1UMAS 2014 forwards a strong message of solidarity amidst trying times for Malaysia. To quote the organisers, the event seeks “to create awareness among our young generation of the spectrum of cultures and religion of Malaysians while bringing their talents together”. It was absolutely delightful to see the array of different cultures, costumes and dances of Malaysian ethnicities, and I felt very proud to call myself a Malaysian.

I think events such as 1UMAS that seeks to highlight cultural diversity in Malaysia are extremely important: on one hand they open our eyes to see how diverse we can be in terms of culture, religion, language and customs; on the other hand it also reminds us that despite all these differences, we are all Malaysians. The fact is, we do not need to look and think the same way to love each other and be united. In fact, cultural diversity is something that we feel very proud of and want to preserve. This acceptance is exactly what makes Malaysia such a great nation.

I want to extend my sincere gratitude to all who attended and donated to charity. Mon Space Group and I look forward to more opportunities in future to serve those who are in need.

加沙危机慈善晚宴以及一个团结大马文化交融 2014

据联合国人道主义事务协调厅(OCHA)的资料显示,自2014年以巴冲突爆发以来,总共夺走了2205巴勒斯坦人,其中包括最少1483名巴勒斯坦平民因此丧命。

虽然来自世界各国的援助也不断地输送到加沙冲突地带,但资源仍显不足,依然需要良好建立良好的卫生以及基本设施并提供加沙人民充足的营养。

以巴冲突爆发后,加沙地带的孩子生活在一个充满绝望以及恐惧的环境地下,遭受了严重的精神创伤以及营养不良。

为了表示对于加沙地带危机(Gaza Crisis)以及马来西亚团结精神的支持,Mon Space集团与一个团结大马文化交融2014(1 UMAS)联合筹办了一个慈善晚宴,希望能为巴利斯坦人民尽一份心意,筹备款项资助加沙的人民。

这一场慈善晚宴获得尊贵的霹雳州苏丹拿督斯里阿兹兰沙(Sultan Azlan Shah)最小的公主,尊贵的拿督斯里苏菲亚公主陛下(Yang Teramat Mulia Raja Dato ‘Seri Yong Sofia binti Almarhum Sultan Azlan Shah)莅临现场支持。

尊贵的拿督斯里苏菲亚公主陛下在晚宴上致辞时,重点提起了加沙地带的危机,同时提醒在坐的各位基于人道主义,应多多关心加沙地带危机的进展。

除了关心加沙危机之外,我也很关心每一位大马人,正如主办单位1UMAS筹办此晚宴的宗旨:团结就是力量。此活动启发了我们对于多元文化的视野,同时也提醒我们,纵使我们肤色不同,我们依然是马来西亚人。

最后,我要感谢每一位出席者以及捐赠者,我与Mon Space集团非常期待未来能服务每一位有需要的人。[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
