In the spirit of Hari Raya, Johor Empowerment of Intellectual Women Association (JEiWA) with Uda Angsana Sdn Bhd teamed up and opened a charity boutique located at Level 3 in Angsana Mall Johor Bahru to bring smiles to the less fortunate, refugees, and victims of domestic abuse.
Almost 1750 beneficiaries received coupons which entitled them to shop for 10 items in the boutique for Hari Raya which were mostly donated by the public, corporate companies, varsities, and JEiWA members.
The campaign to have the boutique started in May 2017 and was launched by the Johor Menteri Besar’s spouse, Datin Rosni Omar recently, while the beneficiaries enjoyed their shopping spree at the pop-up concept boutique.
“JEiWA has collected more than RM200,000 worth of cash, household items, new and used clothes and more. We do hope that the boutique can be a platform for the public to give charity for the needy,” said President of JEiWA, Nor Fadilah Mohamed Nizar during the launch.
Fadilah also hope that more parties will participate in this charitable cause in the coming years so that the organisation can reach out to more of those in need.
