KUALA LUMPUR: Even the smallest donation can make a difference. 

That was what the Silaturahim Welfare Society found out when they began their door-to-door donation drive for the Malaysia International Peace Fund. 

On Tuesday, three of the society’s committee members managed to collect RM520 from residents in Kampung Pandan and Kampung Baru. 

Society chairman Haji Ismail Mad said the response was very good and many people gave willingly even though some of them were actually quite poor. 

“Even though most of the donations seemed small, it can still make a difference,” he said. 

Society honorary secretary Haji Abdul Razak Debab said he and his colleagues encountered a lot of sympathy towards the Iraqi people’s plight. 

“We hope that this collection will be put to good use because it comes from the goodwill of the people,” he added. 

Encouraged by the good response towards their initial collection, the society plans to continue with its donation drive. 

Founded in 1975, the society has over 1,000 members and its main activity is providing bereavement aid for members in need, and other charitable projects.
