HI-Malaysia Orang Asli Community Program second project at Pos Menson, Cameron Highlands 17-18 Dec 2017


17 - 18/12/17 Part One

HI-Malaysia Orang Asli Community Program second project at Pos Menson, Cameron Highlands.

6 vehicles convoyed to the location via Bentong-Raub -Sg Koyan route.

Last year, We had similar "Back to School" project for the orang asli children who will be starting school Standard One next year.

We brought school uniforms, socks, shoes, school bags and stationeries for them.

For the 40++ households (from a few villages around Pos Menson), we handover rice, cooking oil, sugar, salt, sewing kits and items provided by main sponsors F & N, Hospital Pusrawi and many well wishers.

The team decided that we will give the kids a different kind of treats this year. We fried sausages, French fries, chicken nuggets, curry puffs, and spring rolls.

Come dinner time, they shared our simple meal of home cooked nasi lemak. 'Master Chef' was our Saiful and his family members. We, the other volunteers, were relegated to supporting kitchen helpers and assistants, hi hi.

A carnival filled with activities. Young and old thronged and checked out the booths and mobile food stalls. Promoters on site gave out lots of promotional discounts, freebies and lucky draws for those who join as members.

Yesterday early morning there were 30K++ participants on a cycling marathon. This morning, it was Ceria Run.

So, the crowd was there.
