On the 28th of January 2018, Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRC) organized their second ever Milestone Hopes charity event. Spearheaded by Mr. Sharveswaran this event was held with the intention of raising funds with the National Cancer Society who MRC has worked hand in hand with in the past as well. This was also done with the aim of helping the cancer patients to cover a small portion of their cost of living. In any case, medical bills have the tendency of draining one’s income and even the smallest effort to help would go a long way. Also, often overlooked are the family members of the patients who fight hand in hand in the face of this cruel disease. It is thus the responsibility of anybody who is able to lend a hand and ease the burden as best they can.
MRC however did not do this alone. They collaborated with many other limbs of Multimedia University, namely; Student Affairs Division (STAD), Chinese Language Society, Indian Cultural Society, MMU Choir Club, Institute Usrah, Fencing Club, MMU Rovers, Sekretariat Rakan Muda, as well as Multimedia Initiative for the Language of English (MILE). On behalf of MRC, a big thanks is accorded to all the parties above for helping make the event a success.
Their appreciation is also extended to their generous sponsors as well as to all the attendees that graced the event with their presence and spirit.
Let’s not forget also that a beautiful array of food was served as dinner for all that were there. It’s safe to say that no one left with empty belly’s that night. All in the spirit of giving of course.
