PDK Cenwaey Penaney holds first Sports Day for Semai OA Students
PDK Cenwaey Penaney, a community learning centre built in the Semai indigenous villages of Ulu Tual, northwest of Pahang, organised its inaugural Sports Day event over a sunny weekend in July 2016. Located about 23km from the nearest paved road, this rural learning centre caters to about 100 school-going children, and was the first educational establishment to benefit from the MyKasih Orang Asli Children's Education Fund. Children and youth dressed in their Sports House colours of red, blue, green and yellow, were blazing through marked-out trails during the cross-country competition. They participated in other fun traditional games and telematches together with their parents and siblings. Pre-schoolers participated in age-appropriate games such as arranging cans in order of numbers, carrying sand using a banana leaf to fill up a bottle, and peeling as many young beetle nuts as they could within a time limit. The bigger children were involved in pole-climbing (a team activity), 100m running events (individual and in pairs), long jump, and bowling using coconuts. Family telematches include Tarik Upih (parents pulling coconut fronds with their child seated on it) and building a bicycle using tapioca plants. For MyKasih Foundation, it was a truly memorable weekend to witness healthy and happy children. Donors John and Edwina Thornton, who supported the centre’s operations this 2016, visited PDK Cenwaey Penaney on 2 July 2016 and met with the students and community elders. They presented prizes to the winners of the cross-country event and held a book-reading and sing-along session with the children. A doctor and medical officers from the Kuala Lipis District Ministry of Health’s community clinic and dental clinic were also present to carry out basic health and dental screening, and dispense medicines to those who needed.

Golfers swing in aid of MyKasih
140 golfers made the best out of the morning’s fair weather and excellent ground conditions at the Valley Course of the Glenmarie Golf & Country Club on 6 August 2016. The sixth annual charity golf tournament organised by MyKasih Foundation successfully raised RM 907,000 through flight sponsorships and cash donations. Dialog Group Berhad (DIALOG) was the main sponsor, having taken up a total of 10 flights worth RM 180,000. All the way from Tennessee, Paul Gould and his family, who are regular supporters of MyKasih since 2012, renewed their yearly pledge towards the charity golf event. “The success of this charity golf tournament demonstrates our donors’ belief in the programmes we deliver to improve the communities’ wellbeing. We are grateful for your continued support over the years, however there is much more that needs to be done. We hope that more companies will join us in our efforts to assist finally-burdened families in meeting their basic needs for food and education”, said Tan Sri Dr Ngau.
