2013 Report

Its been an exciting and great year for us, with overdose of activities at certain weekends that hardly give our volunteers the time to rest. Nevertheless, I am sure everyone was happy when the work is completed and smiling faces all around. First and foremost, I would like to thank all donors and sponsors who have contributed their time and money to ensure all projects can be completed successfully. Without your support, we would not are able to achieve so many projects.

For 2013, we completed a total of 27 projects. The following are the summary of amount was received and utilised for the year :-

Total receiveable   RM30,002.46
Total expenses       RM28.104.30
Balance C/F           RM1898.16


Note : The amount does not include items donated by sponsors.

Project Summary 
In the first quarter, we started our initial pilot project of providing groceries to the needies. With good response from the donors, we were able to sustain for the next 8 months till November 2013. Our little contribution of RM100 wont help to make their live better, but the least it would do is ease their burden for the month. Hopefully, we will be able to continue this project in 2014. For February, we provided some groceries to Pusat Penjagaan Kanak Kanak Cacat Klang.

In March, we organised a Kid's Movie Day for Anbe Sivam Orphanage for 26 children, and McDonald for tea break. We also visited Pertubuhan Kebajikan Kanak-kanak Yatim & Miskin Wawasan Port Dickson to provide groceries to the home in April.

After some absence from Kajang Home, we visited them again in May. In June, we do a joint project with our sister NGO, Project MADE for 26 poor families in SJKC Ming Tee, Kg Tiram Baru.

We also responded to an urgent request for groceries for St Judes Home in Shah Alam in July, and for the Syawal Feeding Program this year, we provided basic groceries to 100 families in PPR Bt Muda, Jalan Ipoh. It is an amazing feat by the team have collected items and funds to ensure all things fall into place due to the limited time frame we need to work on. We also provide some grocery relief to the poor in Kg Samy, Port Klang and to a home in Batu Pahat as when our volunteer goes outstation.

In September, we move further up to Sabak Bernam in our Groceries Program for the Needy for 50 families. We also visited Myanmar Refugee Home (United Learning Center) at Jalan Imbi. Special thanks to Domino Pizza for sponsoring the pizza for the children.

October was a busy month with visit to Persatuan Kebajikan WargaTua & Kanak Kanak K.L and also provide groceries to 60 needy families in PPR Muhibbah.  And for Deepavali, we had Reach Out (Wednesday Team) to sponsored groceries in conjunction with Deepavali for the needy families. In December, we did a Back To School Program 2013 which we provided school uniforms to 50 students in PPR Kota Damansara, and a final project to Kuantan flood victims before the year end.
It has been a very fruitful year for 1M1c and hats off to our volunteers who have put in much effort, time and money to ensure each and every project is completed successfully. In short, I would also like to thank our following sister NGOs for their invaluable support - Reach Out Malaysia, Together We Make A Difference, Hearts : Charity Beings From the Heart and Project MADE. This year, also a year of friendship and we meet a lot of new friends that are like minded and we were able to work together to benefit the society. :)

With the rising cost of living, its expected that things would be more difficult for everyone. While it would be hard for us - the middle class working people, but do bear in mind there are others that are in worse position than us. I do believe that with everyone contribute a small sum, collectively we will be able to make a difference. Hence, we do hope your contribution will keep coming in to help them. Again, thank you again to all our volunteers and sponsors for keeping 1M1c going for 4 years! Hope to see you in our events! :)
