A&L Adventure & Leisure Sdn Bhd is happy to support The Star’s WOW-Women Do Wonders campaign taking place this weekend in Petaling Jaya.

Its executive director, Lim Chen Leong-Alsagoff, said the women’s fiesta was a good avenue to promote sports activities.

“Water activities such as scuba diving are actually affordable, safe and relaxing and for women learners we provide women instructors.

“As one of the main distributors of scuba diving equipment, we really want to go into women’s market to promote adventure water sports.

“Even manufacturers nowadays are targeting more women as today’s women are financially independent that they can be in any field, ” she said.

Lim said the mindset that they were less capable than men should be changed.

“Women should be told that they are just as intelligent and good at managing like men if they pursue their interests with passion.

“On the day of the event, we will open up a booth to promote our services and give a special promotion to customers who want to learn scuba diving.

“We are also sponsoring 80 snorkelling mask sets for the lucky draw,” she added.

Sunfeet International Rehabilitation Centre will also be taking part in the event to create awareness among women on foot problems.

Renowned podiatric biomechanics specialist Datuk Dr Edmund Lee said the centre treats patients, especially women, with foot pain body posture and alignment problems.

“We want to educate more women on foot problems that they have been enduring in silence.

“Many of us assume that foot pain is normal and incurable but we can live without the pain,” said Lee.

At the event, they will offer free foot screening and consultation sessions with professionals for women.

“We are sponsoring custom- made orthotics which will be really beneficial for those with foot pain,” Lee added.

Held in conjunction with International Women’s Day, the two-day Women’s Fiesta will take place on March 10 and 11 from 10am to 8pm at The Starling Mall in Damansara Uptown, Petaling Jaya.

It will feature a bazaar to support women entrepreneurs and will have interesting talks, workshops and performances, all to celebrate and empower women.
