Shopping for a good cause


Food items were also on sale as part of the Great Heart Charity Bazaar.

HUNDREDS of visitors thronged the Great Heart Community Centre (GHCC) in Klang to join the inaugural Great Heart Charity Bazaar and shop for household items while contributing to a good cause.

Organised by Great Heart Charity Association (GHCA) to raise funds for its charity programmes that serve the needy, the event saw visitors snap up various household items that were generously donated by Yumiso (M) Sdn Bhd.

Among the items on sale were cleaning tools, plasticware, kitchenware, decorative items, toys, accessories, stationery, fashion items, cosmetic products and IT gadgets, all of which were sold for RM1 and RM5.

GHCC administrator Angie Ng said the event was a huge success, especially since it was GHCA’s very first charity bazaar.

“I am grateful to all the volunteers and committees for their time and effort, all of whom worked tirelessly to serve the visitors at the charity bazaar. Their spirit moved me.

“There was a lot of pressure to ensure the success of this charity bazaar and raise sufficient funds to support our charity programmes as it has never been held in our community centre before.

“Therefore, the success today is a huge relief that will allow us to serve the various underprivileged groups under our care,” said Ng.

Forty volunteers were on site to set up the bazaar since early morning before it kicked off from 10am to 4pm.

Among the volunteers were primary school and college students.

Also present on site to help out at the function was GHCA founder and president Franky See.

A total of RM19,227.00 was raised from the charity bazaar and this will be utilised by GHCA to support the various underprivileged families, dialysis patients and care centres under its ongoing

programmes.
