Recently, Hong Kong celebrity Michelle Yim and I visited the Rohingya refugee camp in Selayang and donated some necessities, which will hopefully alleviate the sufferings of the refugees.

The Rohingyas are some of the most persecuted people in the world. Most of them fled from Myanmar to slums and refugee camps in Bangladesh, via a trail along the borders of Thailand and Myanmar. Many of them also fled to Malaysia and Indonesia by sea.

Since the beginning of 2015, thousands of Rohingyas started moving away from Myanmar and Bangladesh. They are called “boat people” by the international media, because many used small, worn-out boats to travel across the treacherous Melaka Straits to Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand.

But even when they manage to flee the conflict zone of Myanmar, their lives in refugee camps are still bleak, with bad sanitation, low food and water supplies, and very little hope for improvement in their lives.

This February, I have donated on behalf of MONSPACE, a mobile clinic to St. John Ambulance Malaysia, so they can better offer medical assistance to the Rohingyas.

Months later, the team and I, plus Michelle visited the refugee camps again. It was crowded to the brim. Besides donating food and daily necessities, we also hosted a small tea party, offering much-needed moments of happiness to people at the camp.

The children were happy, playful, and sang loudly together, while the adults were glad to have a short moment of relief. I guess that’s the most rewarding part of charity—to see people who have suffered put on a smile, and letting them know that all hope is not lost.

Since its founding, MONSPACE has helped many underprivileged groups, including women, children, the old, and even refugees. These acts were not motivated by religion, but rather a simple belief that humanity deserves better. We need to help those who are in need, and my hope is that those who have received help gets a chance to get back on track, rebuild their lives, and live happily again. I want them to know that there is hope and love in the world, so they shouldn’t give up just yet.

It is our commitment to keep giving, and to keep showing love to those in need of it. We want everyone to live in a world that cares, and inspire others to care as well.

近日,我与香港着名影星米雪一起到士拉央罗兴亚人难民营去探视並捐赠物质于落难的罗兴亚难民们,希望这些物资能够帮助罗兴亚难民抒困。

罗兴亚人是世界上受到迫害最严重的难民之一,许多罗兴亚人被迫从缅甸逃离到邻国孟加拉国的贫民窟和难民营生活,并沿泰国-缅甸边境地区一路逃难,很多罗兴亚人更从海上逃至马来西亚和印度尼西亚避难。

2015年开始,包含数千名罗兴亚人从缅甸和孟加拉开始向外迁徙,被国际媒体称为“船民”。他们藉由残破的小船,从马六甲海峡和安达曼水域流窜向包含马来西亚丶印尼丶菲律宾和泰国等东南亚国家。

在逃难他国的日子里,他们住在环境条件极差的难民营,吃喝都成问题,步入生活正轨变成了奢望。

今年2月,我曾代表Monspace集团曾捐赠一辆流动救伤车於大马圣约翰,协助约翰顺利帮罗兴亚人义诊。

数个月之後,我再次率领团队邀请米雪前往罗兴亚难民营捐赠,一到现场看见难民营人满为患,我们除了捐赠物资之外,也在现场主办了小型的茶会,让罗兴亚人能够享受难得的快乐。

现场充满着欢笑,小朋友们开心的玩乐唱歌,而大人们则享受难得的轻松,我想,做慈善最满足的事情就是看到人们的展露笑颜,让人觉得人生其实还是充满着希望!

Monspace集团自成立以来,协助过许多妇女孤儿老人以及难民团体,对这些弱势群体伸出援手往往无关宗教,而是将善心建立在人道主义上,我们帮助所有需要得到协助的人,我们所盼望的是这些得到援助的人们,能够尽快步上轨道,重建生活,重拾快乐,希望能让他们明白,人间有爱,希望他们不会轻易放弃生活。
.
关爱社会,关爱公益,关爱慈善活动,Monspace集团将持续支持公益慈善事业,让每一个人都能生活在有爱的世界上,让爱心继续发扬下去。
