ABOUT 400 orang asli atten-ded the Karnival Kesihatan held at the Sungai Mai orang asli settlement in Jerantut, Pahang last month.

The event, which was jointly organised by the Apex Clubs of Kuala Lumpur and Bandar Syed Putra and the Malaysian Medical Association (MMA), Pahang, featured medical and dental camps as well as an organ donation drive.

Look what we got!: Orang asli children with their new school bags.

Some 150 Apex members, Hess Oil & Gas Sdn Bhd staff members, volunteers and family members, as well as doctors, nurses and other auxiliary medical staff from Temerloh, Kuantan, Seremban, Klang, Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur, participated in the community service project, which was a success.

Two computers, a printer, school uniforms, school bags, school shoes and socks were donated to the students in the community. Primary and secondary orang asli students also received scholarships and stationery.

The younger children in the community were entertained with games and music. Toys and clothes donated by Apex members and the Hess Oil & Gas Sdn Bhd staff were distributed to everyone. The event ended with a friendly football game involving three orang asli teams and three teams from the visiting members.
