This morning, I was invited to witness the handover of donation from Persatuan Kebajikan Penjaja Dan Peniaga Kecil, Pasar Besar, Taman Tun Dr. Ismail to Tabung Harapan Malaysia. On their own initiative, this traders’ association embarked on a donation drive for Tabung Harapan Malaysia, raising a total sum of RM 12,350.00 in 10 days. It is indeed very moving to see ordinary Malaysians from all backgrounds bringing their resources together for the nation.
I also took the opportunity to have a short dialogue with the traders here to understand some of their challenges including difficulty with working permit for their foreign workers who are involved with preparation and cleaning works. They have expressed hope for the new government to make clear the SOPs involving hiring of foreign workers as a reform to rid corruption. This landmark market in TTDI serves a big community.
