APEX CLUB of KLANG - Charity Climathon

APEX CLUB of KLANG - Charity Climathon 

Apex is a service organization that addresses the needs of the handcapped, the destitute, the less fortunate and the underprivileged through the relentless efforts of its members, and with the contributions from well wishers and supporters. 

15th - 18th May ‘2009 (4 Days 3 Nights Mount Kinabalu) 
• Package Cost : RM 1,250, (if AirAsia flights are booked on 19th Mar ‘09) 
In line with that, The Apex Club of Klang would be organising a “Charity Climathon” on the date as above to raise funds for the following projects. 

Fund Raising Objective 
Sheltered Workshop for Special Children 

To raise RM 250,000 for the building of a Sheltered Workshop to be build at the Special School in Southern Park, Klang managed by the Selangor Association for Retarded Children (SARC). Via this Charity Climathon we are expecting to raise at least RM 100,000 through public donations. Tax exempt receipts will be issued. Cheques can either be made payable to Apex Club of Klang or SARC. Todate a sum of RM 150,000 has been raised. 

At present there are about 130 special children getting their education in this school (SARC). After completing their skills study (age 17), almost all of them find it difficult to land a job as they are physically challenged as well. With the building of the Sheltered Workshop, these students would be self-employed in-house to maximise their skills in producing products (to be identified) which would be sold. This concept is to self-empower this special children to be self dependent. 

Fishing Boats for Orang Asli Fishermen ( “Mah Meri” ) 

This orang asli settlement along the coastal areas in Tanjung Harapan, Port Klang houses around 19 families. Their livelihood is fishing and at present they rent the boats from the tout’s at a fixed rental rate of RM 40.00 per day. On top of that they are also required to sell whatever catch they make for the day to the tout’s at a very discounted price. They are definitely suppressed to the maximise. 

This was brought to the attention of “The Apex Club of Klang” in Oct. ‘08 and an article on this was carried in the Star dated. 29th Oct. ‘08. Our objective is to at least raise a sum of RM 28,000 , that would help to purchase 4 boats for their fishing activities thus empowering them to earn what should rightfully be theirs without the interference of the tout’s. Use of the boats would be rotated among the 19 families.
