Nu Skin Malaysia once again fulfilled the wishes of children in need through its Wish List Project.
It was first launched in collaboration with Institut Jantung Negara Foundation (IJN Foundation) in 2008 is aimed at bringing cheer to children born with congenital heart disease by turning their wishes into reality.
“We are pleased to extend this initiative to three other locations, Penang, Johor Baru and Kuching to fulfil the wishes of close to 300 children this year,” said Nu Skin Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei Group Market president Antonia Chang.
Nu Skin granted the wishes of close to 200 children this year by providing stationery, toys, electronic devices, bicycles, baby cots, and other items.
The Wish List Project serves as a way for Nu Skin distributors and staff members to give back to the community.
Every year, underprivileged children are given the chance to write down their wish on a card which will then be fulfilled by participating Nu Skin distributors and staff members.
The Wish List party marks a very special occasion where the children are granted their wishes. Laughter filled the room during this year’s party as the children were treated to a fun-filled magic show.
The sales leaders and management of Nu Skin Malaysia also visited children at the paediatric ward after the gift presentation.
“We are indeed grateful to have Nu Skin as one of our corporate partners,” said IJN Foundation fundraising chairman Datin Julini Mohd Ali.
Since forming a partnership with IJN Foundation in 2008, Nu Skin Malaysia has been helping children with congenital heart disease from all over Southeast Asia by funding the cost for essential corrective heart surgeries and life-saving treatments.
Through the Nu Skin Malaysia–IJN Foundation Heart Surgery Project for Children, 82 children’s lives have been saved to date.
Besides working with IJN Foundation in Kuala Lumpur, Nu Skin Malaysia also worked with the Children’s Protection Society in Penang, The Salvation Army Children’s Home in Kuching and Pertubuhan Kebajikan Shen-De in Johor Baru to bring smiles to underprivileged children in the country.
