Three times a year, Ipoh Chin Woo would also organise blood and organ donation campaigns. The association had thus far helped to collect more than ten thousand pints of blood, mainly to support Thalassemia patients. Through charitable programmes, over the years, cash amount of more than a million Ringgit was donated by well-wishers, benefitting senior citizens’ homes, orphanages, the disabled and financially-disadvantaged in Ipoh.
During the function, Dato’ Seri Ahmad Husni approved an allocation of RM50,000 to the association to enable the Ipoh Chin Woo wushu contingent to participate in the World Wushu Championships in Tianjin, China, this October. As Second Finance Minister, he was recently tasked by the Prime Minister to raise not only the income level of Malaysians but also the “happiness level”. It is no longer enough just being rich.
It is hoped that the young boys and girls representing Ipoh Chin Woo, with their new lucky dragon and lions, would spread the spirit of “Malaysia Boleh” when they compete in China. I am sure they will all have a memorable outing, in any case.
