Sembang Santai Sukarelawan with Uncle Kentang
“You will not be poor by giving.”
“You will not be destitute because of giving, and you will not be deprived of wealth because of almsgiving. In fact, we will become nobler.” – Uncle Kentang
Many of us relate giving with losing. Losing something we owned, that we earned from our hard work.
Some of us see volunteerism as unpaid labour. Doing work – some are heavy work – without getting paid. Particularly today when life survival is difficult, and economic challenges are never-ending.
Whereas as one nation and community, giving means sharing love and a bright future. We are not losing, but instead, we are gaining together; whereas volunteerism is a reflection of our gratitude, sincerity and empathy.
In collaboration with Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) and Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Kota Samarahan, DoGood brought you a special webinar session with Mr Kuan Chee Heng or infamously known as Uncle Kentang on 22 October 2021.
The webinar was aimed at creating awareness of the spirit of volunteerism and encouraging voluntary involvement among Malaysians.
Throughout the 90 minutes session moderated by our own Chairperson of DoGood, Syuaib Supani, we managed to relook at volunteerism from the perspective of experiences, challenges and solutions, inspiration, practical ideas and the noble divine teachings from God on volunteerism.
Perhaps you are the next Uncle Kentang?
