Charity Programme with Persatuan Rumah Kebajikan Baitul Kasih
The Institute of Diplomacy and Foreign Relations (IDFR) in collaboration with the Diploma in Diplomacy (DiD) participants organised a charity programme themed “Diplomacy Through the People” with Persatuan Rumah Kebajikan Baitul Kasih on 12 and 13 July 2015. The programme aimed to inspire and cherish 29 orphans in conjunction with the Eid Mubarak celebration.
Mrs. Farah Dibah Abu Hanipah led a group from IDFR and Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional (PTPTN) to the orphanage on 12 July 2015 and registered the orphans with the Skim Simpanan Pendidikan Nasional (SSPN-i), a savings scheme specially designed for higher education.
On 13 July 2015, IDFR and the DiD participants visited the orphanage and spent some time to interact and read some books with the orphans. A mini library was also set up during the visit. In the evening, the orphans visited IDFR to break fast together with IDFR officers and DiD participants.
At the end of the session, Mrs. Romaiza Ab Rahman, Director of Competency Enhancement Centre distributed Duit Raya on behalf of the Director General of IDFR and some goodie bags to the orphans.
This effort to reach out to the people will continue to be conducted in the future.
