Foundation and education trust extends help to 25 welfare homes

Food aid contributed by Tunku Naquiyuddin Foundation and Tuanku Ja’afar Educational Trust to House of Love.

TUNKU Naquiyuddin Foundation (YTN) and Tuanku Ja’afar Educational Trust (TJET) are continuing their efforts to serve the underprivileged by helping 25 welfare homes in Malaysia.

For almost two decades, YTN and TJET have organised fundraisers to benefit those in need but the ongoing pandemic and the subsequent movement restrictions have disrupted their charity endeavours.

Some of the past fundraisers by YTN and TJET included productions such as Yannick Bovy Celebrates 100 Years of Nat King Cole (2019), An Evening With The Phantom of the Opera (2018), Stars of the West End (2017), Potted Potter (2016), Thriller (2015) and Yes Prime Minister (2014).

In keeping to their commitment to serve those in need, YTN and TJET — with the support of event and conference specialist Milestone Production as well as sponsors — managed to collect and distribute care packages to several charity homes as well as refugees in the Klang Valley.

The hampers included food, sanitising products, toys for children and other essential items.

Muhammad Ismail Muhammad Shati, who is a refugee and one of the recipients, said: “It has been hard for us since I lost my job due to the pandemic but kind-hearted people and associations had helped greatly.”

Upon the lifting of interstate travel restrictions, YTN and TJET will continue to distribute these care packages to charity homes in Negri Sembilan, Melaka and other areas.

“We are very grateful to the companies and loyal friends that have supported YTN and TJET again,” said YTN and TJET chairman Tunku Naquiyuddin Tuanku Ja’afar.
