After the first charity stop in Kg. Pugi Sabah, Jessy Lai’s Charity Honeymoon embarks on its second leg today to Medan, Indonesia.
Due to frequent business visits to Indonesia recently, Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai has learned that there are many rural, poor villages that are underdeveloped due to their isolated locations.
Medan is the capital of Sumatra. With a population of more than 4 million, it’s the third largest city in Indonesia after Jakarta and Surabaya.
Marelan has poor sanitaion facilities, is isolated geographically, and lacks education opportunities due to poverty. It is in dire need of developmental help.
Several months ago, when Jessy has listed Marelan as one of the stops on her charity trip, the Monspace Indonesia team got in touch with the mayor of Medan DRS.H.T.Dzulmi Eldin to understand and address the situation.
The village was not in good condition when the team arrived. The whole place is located on a swamp, causing huge inconvenience to villagers, and poses many sanitation concerns.
The team donated large amounts of rice, sugar, milk, and food to villagers. We are also planning to station volunteers in Marelan to continue assisting the villagers.
The team is grateful to be able to visit Medan and provide help to these villagers. We hope their quality of lives improve in the near future.
Life inspiring life.
