Soroptomist International Iskandar Puteri brought underprivileged children from 8 homes to watch Johnny English 3
Soroptomist International Iskandar Puteri (SIIP) brought 195 underprivileged children from 8 different homes in Johor Bahru, including a group of Orang Asli and Rohingya children, to watch Johnny English come back from retirement in a third installment of the movie franchise recently at the mm Cineplexes in City Square Mall Johor Bahru.
This charity screening was to sponsor and treat the children from various homes, orphanages, the orang asli and the refugee community to an unforgettable movie event and at the same time to help raise funds for SIIP’s projects to educate and empower marginalised women and children, improve health and sustainability of our environment.
Contributions came in rather generously in the form of food and drinks, as well as monies from a collection initiated by Pantech Corporation Sdn Bhd. Julie’s donated biscuits while Sri Ara School sponsored mineral water and helped to arrange transportation for some of the Orang Asli and Rohingya children who didn’t have any means of transport.
Gianni’s Trattoria prepared pizzas for the children as a brunch treat to enjoy while watching the movie, and before for some.
Despite the gloomy rainy morning, the children were awesomely excited throughout the screening event. Prior to entering the movie hall, the children got a chance to take group photos with a student from Sri Ara School who dressed up as the MI7 agent, Johnny English.
‘Johnny English Strikes Again’ has Rowan Atkinson reprising his role as the bumbling MI7 secret agent Johnny English in this third instalment of the movie series. When a cyber-attack reveals the identity of all active undercover agents in Britain, Johnny English was left as the Secret Service’s last hope. Called out of retirement, English dives head first into action with the mission to find the mastermind hacker. As a man with few skills and analogue methods, Johnny English must overcome the challenges of modern technology to make this mission a success. And so the adventure begins.
