Charity Work

lighthouse orphanage

 

The ABWM supports local Malaysian charities in two ways. First, any money that we make from events like the Christmas Bazaar, sponsorship or fund raising go directly to the charities. They use this money to sponsor children through education, provide shelter for people who need it, to care for sick animals and and to empower and counsel women in need. These are just some of the good causes that we help with. You can read about the others below. Second, many of our members give their time and skills to help the charities directly. Some ladies teach and look after disabled children, others help women refugees to re-build their lives.

If you're looking for a rewarding and meaningful way to spend your time in Malaysia, then become a volunteer. There are so many people who would value your help! Whether you have a lot of spare time on your hands or just a little, there are many ways you can make a difference. It's a great way to keep your skills current and to develop yourself. Teaching and caring for children, nursing, marketing, accounting and running events are just a few examples of the things you could be doing.

 

Volunteering also gives you a chance to really get to know more about the local community, culture and environment you are living in. The charities listed below are the ones that we support financially, there's a wider list for volunteering.
