Meru Valley’s Patchwork Society Raises RM17,000 for Disabled Children

Meru Valley’s Patchwork Society has raised more than RM17,000 to support the care of disabled children at their 13th annual charity bazaar on Saturday, 7 November.

Supporting the children from Pusat Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Setia, Silibin, the society has been hunkered down sewing throughout lockdown.

The bazaar satisfied people looking for festive gifts such as beautiful hand sewn batik face masks, bags, purses, kids’ toys and vegetables from Cameron Highlands.

Datin Mina Ushiama is delighted with the results of the bazaar, she said: “With such stringent SOPs, we never expected such a good turnout. Some local and international friends who couldn’t make it to the bazaar, purchased our craft via WhatsApp.”

“I would like to thank Mr Fong from Cameron Highlands for selling fresh vegetables together in this bazaar in support of charity.”
Those who shopped at the bazaar happily shared the items they’ve bought with pictures on our Facebook page.

Ms Lee said: “I bought a beautiful handmade mask and a bag from the bazaar”.

Ms Mei who shopped for her family and niece said: “I bought two pre-loved toys for my niece, then a tape made bag for myself and some fresh vegetables for my mother.”

If you missed the bazaar or want more, keep an eye out for the Meru’s e-bazaar sale, which will be updated on our Facebook page soon.
