2018 Charity Home Visit

Dear All, MBMC Dhamma School will be organising a charity home visit to pusat Kebajikan Shammah. It’s a small orphanage housing 18 children age 6-18 in Butterworth run by a kind couple. The visit will be on 30 September, transport and lunch will be provided. The Center is currently facing financial difficulties so we would like to help in terms of collecting monetary donations, food and clothes. We will also be doing a recycling project to collect recyclables and sell them to collect donations for the Center while at the same time instill recycling habit among our students. We will be setting up a recycling station outside Bhojana Sala from Monday (17 Sep) on wards to collect recyclable items for this good cause. Please help, thanks and sadhu.
