The More We Serve, The More Strength We Receive To Keep Good Deeds
Last 16th October 2015, team Galeri Chandan together with Islamic Aid Malaysia arrived in Manek Urai, Kelantan to help decorate and make the home of Puan Habibah and family as livable as possible. This came as a surprise for Puan Habibah and family as they thought that receiving a brand new home was a great gift already but thankful all the same with the continued help and support given to them.
Together with 9 students from Universiti Malaysia Kelantan, 1 student from Universiti Putra Malaysia and 2 carpenters from the neighbourhood, these volunteers along with our Managing Director Mr. Mohammad Nazli Abdul Aziz and team Islamic Aid Malaysia headed by IAM President, Mr. Zawahir Abdullah took 2 days to help paint the house inside and out, and designed murals for the children’s room. Besides that Galeri Chandan also supplied them with new rubber mats, pillows, mattresses, curtains, cooking utensils, a new TV and refrigerator.
