Celebrating 66 years of freedom with the Malaysian spirit helping hand

A shimmering ray of hope lit up many lives in Malaysia during the Covid-19 pandemic. The #KitaJagaKita spirit, an embodiment of unity, where Malaysians from all walks of life, irrespective of their differences, stood shoulder to shoulder, offering support in every way they could. The same spirit resurfaces every time a flash flood hits our land. What if we carry that spirit with us every day?


The treacherous waves of the pandemic may have subsided, but our people, our furry companions, our nature, our arts and our culture, are still facing challenges each day.

There are children deprived of the opportunity to learn due to a lack of access to schools. Some families wrestle with the heart-wrenching challenge of providing just one meal a day. Our environment and its diverse ecosystem, along with our adorable strays, also cries out for protection and care. Our journey of support and giving must forge ahead.


The beauty of support is in its flexibility

For many, the concept of charitable giving or donations may seem intimidating. Think about this: If you have RM10 to spare a month, which breaks down to a mere 36 cents daily, believe it or not, you have the potential to make a monumental impact. As the timeless Malay saying goes, "sedikit-sedikit, lama-lama jadi bukit". The literal translation being "little by little, over time it will become a hill" or in other words, the compounding effect. Every small contribution, when combined, builds up, creating a vast landscape of hope and change.


Freedom of choice in your giving

With Sokong, you can choose where your money goes. Maybe you want to help children or perhaps the environment or both. You can distribute your contributions among various beneficiaries and they can be from different causes. There are various campaigns to choose from. You can commit to monthly giving if you want to. You decide.


As we celebrate Malaysia's Independence Day, it's not just our history and freedom that we celebrate, but also the unmatched spirit of the Malaysian helping hand.

Head over to our growing list of beneficiaries and support one, or perhaps several causes that tug at your heartstrings and you can become an architect of positive change. Even if you can only contribute a modest amount, remember this:

“It’s not about how much we give, but how much love we put into giving” - Mother Theresa

The right time to create an impact is not tomorrow or the next day, but today. Join us in this journey of compassion, unity, and hope. Together, we can shape a Malaysia where no one is left behind.
