On 18 October, Nalanda Sungai Petani Branch successfully held our inaugural fund-raising event – the “Melodies for the Heart” Concert – in Sungai Petani, Central Kedah. The concert was an unequivocal success due to the great support and generosity of many benefactors and the effort of selfless volunteers!
Our special thanks to Bro. Chiam Tiek Eng and Bro Yap Kooi Eng for proposing and coordinating this concert for our fund-raising. We would also like to thank Sekolah Menengah Simpang Empat alumni students and other volunteers for helping with ticket sales as well as with various other duties. We are also grateful to fellow Nalandians from Sri Serdang, Kuala Lumpur, and Johor Bahru who came to lend us their experience and assistance.
We are very touched to see more than 1,000 people turning up at the concert despite the day-long downpour! Some traveled from as far as Perlis, Penang, Jitra, Alor Setar, Guar Chempedak, Baling, and elsewhere to offer us their moral support. Thank you for placing faith in us, and for supporting Nalanda’s education mission. We wish everyone the best of health, success, peace and happiness always!
