PETALING JAYA: The Petaling Jaya Kwan Inn Teng Foundation presented RM400,000 in donations, scholarships and study loans to 20 charitable organisations and 300 students in conjunction with Wesak Day yesterday. 

Funded by the public, the financial assistance is provided yearly.  

According to Federal Territory MCA deputy chairman and event organising committee deputy chairman Datuk Khoo Lay Hin, the foundation was set up 30 years ago. 

“More than 10,000 students and 200 organisations have benefited from this financial aid programme,” he said, adding that the foundation’s founder Master Keng Ang had helped many needy Malaysians with his compassion.  

Selangor MCA deputy chairman Datuk Donald Lim said Malaysia was a country where people could practise their own religion.

“This is what creates a harmonious society,” he said. 

Lim added that more non-governmental organisations should follow the example set by the foundation in disbursing donations and scholarships to the needy during festive seasons. 

Among those present were MCA vice-president and Selangor MCA chairman Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting and organising committee chairman Datuk Sim Peng Choon.
