Malaysian students on charity mission in PP

The pupils of the Glory Academy, a school in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur, will arrive in Phnom Penh on Monday on a six-day Glory Pupil charity mission.

Glory Academy principal Jessy Saw said the trip will enable the children to see and experience for themselves the living conditions of underprivileged children in low-income areas and orphanages.

"As Christmas is also a season of giving and blessing the needy, we are also conducting activities such as teaching the children and helping out at the orphanages, presenting donations in the form of food and books to some 90 underprivileged children and orphans at the Bethany Baptist Church,” she said.

Such activities, she added, would be an opportunity for the organisers to show the visiting children how blessed they are and to teach them to help those in need.

The press release said the Glory Pupil group organised a two-day Christmas charity sale and sold handiwork made by the children to raise funds for the Cambodian mission.
