Personal Challenge

Dear all, I am taking up the FUNdraising challenge with World Vision Malaysia in an effort to raise funds for children with limited access to clean water and proper sanitation facilities in Baganuur, Mongolia. This leads to health problems like diarrhoea, infectious diseases and Hepatitis A, which in rural communities, can be fatal. As part of our team ‘Malaysians for Mongolians’ I am committing to raise RM5,000 to put an end to Water, Sanitation and Health issues. Please support me in my fundraising.

My Story

On 1 May 2015, I led a group of child sponsors to Mongolia. One of the districts we visited was Baganuur, a very new Area Development Programme funded by World Vision Malaysia. As this is only the first year of implementation, the needs are great. We were brought to a ger kindergarten and the principal we interviewed told us that it is her wish for the children to have access to proper toilet and sanitation facilities. At present, children have to walk out of the ger to use the pit latrine (refer to picture in the gallery). There have been cases of children falling into the pit. During winter, when temperature can drop to -40°C, it is just too bitterly cold for the children to go out and ease themselves. This is reflective of the general situation amongst the kindergartens and schools in Baganuur.

As a team, we are committing to raise RM150,000 that will provide clean water, proper sanitation and promote good hygiene practices. The funds will directly benefit more than 2,600 children and families in 5 kindergartens and 4 secondary schools through the following initiatives:-
  • Installation of at least 3 water storage tanks
  • Construction of 16 bio toilet units (with bio decomposers) and 1 public bath house / toilet
  • Distribution of handouts on hygiene and sanitation practices
  • Building 16 washing facilities
  • Sanitation and hygiene campaign training sessions

On behalf of the children of Baganuur, I thank you for your generous support.

A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed - Proverbs 11:25
