Charity Booth at Bangsar Shopping Centre

Posted in Events

2 Dec 2012 VPM had a charity booth at BSC for a week from Monday, 26 Nov. The response we received from the crowd at BSC was overwhelming and the crowd ranged from local to expatriate across all nationalities and religion. We had no shortage of yummy food from cakes to chocolates to curry puffs to 'nasi tumpang' to 'nasi goreng' to tiramisu and quiche etc etc etc that were brought to our booth on a daily basis to be sold for charity towards emergency relief for Gaza.

We were most touched by the kids from Rumah Solehah who requested to contribute 100 red velvet cupcakes for our charity booth. Fazilah Ahmad, a baker, baked the cupcakes and the kids from Rumah Solehah contributed their creative skills in creating the cupcake toppers.

Dec 3, 2012 Fashion designer, Jovian Mandagie (JM), a favored couturier amongst super stars as well as KL's most elite, organized a Humanity Walk JM at the Pavilion Shopping Centre in KL. Response from the shopping crowd was very good and we collected RM7,396.30 in donations and sale of VPM paraphernalia in just 2 hours. All proceeds were given to VPM for the re-development of Gaza. We would like to thank everyone who have come to help in the event. Friends, family and followers, God bless you! Special thanks to Carlos & Pavilion for giving us the opportunity to make such chaos in that two hours.

Support Ramzy's Run

Empower the Women of Gaza

On the occasion of the Seattle Marathon 2012 which will take place on November 25th, VPM will pledge USD 20,000 to fund more micro-financing projects for women. And Ramzy Baroud, a renowned Palestinian- American journalist, author, editor and former Al-Jazeera producer has offered to undertake the most difficult part of the fund raiser; the running!

The empowerment and employment of women has been a priority since our visits to Gaza in October 2010, August 2011 and more recently in June 2012. A total of USD 70,000 has so far been disbursed to our partner, the Family & Society Development Association in Gaza. This has helped to create jobs for women – many of them widowed and breadwinners – in such cottage industries as sewing & embroidery, beauty & hairdressing and bakery.
