Our organization, formerly known as ESDA (Mercy) Services, was established in 1999. We are a NGO providing services to people with needs irrespective of race or religion especially those who are neglected and marginalized. In 2002, we were registered with the Registrar of Societies (ROS) as Persatuan Perkhidmatan Komuniti Taiping. And in 2006, Inland Revenue Board (IRB) approved our tax-exempt status for donors. Currently, we are managed by a Board of Management.
Now, we are on a mission to fundraise RM50,000 for students from B40 families in Taiping, Perak to help them afford tools for online learning such as laptops, handphones, WiFi, and to cover other expenses on their education. At the same time, we are also looking for used laptops and handphones that hopefully people can donate. If we are able to received used laptops and handphones, the collected funds will be used to cover WiFi expenses and other education expenses.
Here's a breakdown on how we will use the funds for each family:
Laptop Lenovo IdeaPad L3i Gen 6 (15) - RM1719 per laptop
Umobile WB 88 plan - RM44/month for 50gb (12 months)
Digi plan - RM65/month for 50gb (12 months)
