Factsheet: Bangsar Village Kids’ for Kids’ Charity Fund Factsheet

Since its inception in 2004, the Bangsar Village Kids’ for Kids’ Charity Fund has pledged itself to assisting children in need. The charity fund has in the last ten years, raised over RM 600,000 through donations, events and children’s activities held in Bangsar Village.  The expenses for these activities are fully sponsored by Bangsar Village’s holding company, Eng Lian Enterprise Sdn. Bhd., tenants and friends of Bangsar Village. The activities are organized and run by Bangsar Village Management team and staff.

The community has been truly supportive of all the activities and it can be said that this charity is truly a joint effort from everyone in the community in ‘giving back to our children in need’.

Some of the activities held over the years include:
1) Various arts & craft projects i.e. cupcake decorations, Easter egg, Ginger-bread house decoration amongst others;
2) Shoe painting;
3) Christmas and related Santa Claus activities;
4) Halloween costume competitions;
5) Mooncake festival walk and lantern making etc.

Two coffee table books, ‘PLACES LESS TRAVELLED’ and ‘WILD’ were also launched in 2007 and 2013 respectively in conjunction with ex-banker Y.Y. Chin to benefit homes under this Charity.

To date, the Bangsar Village Kids’ for Kids’ Charity Fund has donated to various children’s homes including Stepping Stones, Rumah Hope, Shelter Home, Rumah Kebajikan Kanak Kanak, and Rumah Kanak-Kanak Angels, Yayasan Ozanam, Rumah Charis, Yayasan Sunbeam, The Society for The Severely Mentally Handicapped KL and The Agathians Shelter and other causes that have required monetary assistance.
