Thanks to Jo for putting up the NST report here at JJ Resources. I’m not too sure why New Straits Times didn’t put it on their website. hmm …
KUALA LUMPUR, Sat.- Members of three Christian organisations in Sentul raised funds from a day-long sale of food, beverage, clothes, greeting cards, hampers, souveniers and handicraft.
The sale at Tadika Senyum Manis was jointly organised by the Grace Methodist Church of Sentul, Bangsar Lutheran Church and humanitarian organisation World Vision Malaysia.
Pastor Sivin Kit said the proceeds, along with a giant banner carrying signatures of donors, would be submitted to World Vision Malaysia to be distributed to victims.
Among today’s sponsors: Sentul Curry House, Sayed Restaurant Bangsar, grocery store Chop Chai Seng, greeting cards from Memory Lane, second-hand stor Pusat Redeem, Church of Living Springs, sound system and equipment company Major 7 Music, City Hall and the police. Several local bands provided entertainment.
Segambut MP Datuk Dr. Tan Kee Kwong gave a personal contribution to the “World Vision Asia Tsunami Response 2004” collection box.
