Sewing had been part of their lives for the past half-decade. When they were young, sewing was their source of income to support their families, as well as, their children’s education. Later, sewing became a symbol of love and support towards the Tzu Chi International School Kuala Lumpur (TCISKL) fundraising charity sale.

At the Tzu Chi International School KL (TCISKL) fundraising charity sale, the paintings by Koh Khong Way, a youth with Down syndrome, and the Zentangle drawings by Goh Kai Le, a hyperactive girl, drew the visitors’ attention. They sold their art pieces not for personal profits, but for the school fund.

When Tzu Chi volunteers in KL & Selangor area were busy preparing for a fundraising charity event at three different locations on August 27, 2017, little Kam Xin Yan, a four-year-old, was  keeping herself busy.

Tzu Chi International School Kuala Lumpur, guided by the principle of “laying the foundation with Great Love, holistic education is the priority”, is going to be a beautiful school filled with love and kindness; with classes commencing in 2020. In order to raise funds for the school, Tzu Chi volunteers engaged different approaches to seek donations. When the Entrepreneurs’ Group of Tzu Chi Klang learnt of the initiation of fundraising activity, they decided to chip in by holding a vegetarian charity dinner.

Before knowing of Tzu Chi, 24-year-old Qiqi was known amongst her neighbours as an infamous young delinquent who was a frequent ‘guest’ at the police station. Unable to bear seeing her loitering in the streets, without a roof over her head, Tzu Chi volunteers placed her in the care of a mental health institute and taught her to be someone who offers help to others.
