Now everyone can contribute to humanitarian efforts while getting fitter with BiiBPETALING JAYA, March 19 (Bernama) --
The creators of BiiB - a local Malaysian startup, are collaborating with the Rotary Club of Ampang. The collaboration aims to provide clean drinking water to the Kamahor Refugee Resettlement Village in Myanmar by leveraging on the BiiB+ app. The funds will be generated to construct a solar powered water pump system, which will provide clean drinking water to more than 200 villagers with other villages in the vicinity benefiting from it as well.
Instead of the conventional donor to beneficiary transfer, a fun and innovative charity event has been created for this cause. Known as Distance for a Cause
, users of the BiiB+ app automatically contribute RM 0.30 for every KM they run/walk. Launched on the 24th of February 2018, this charity event aims to achieve a targeted funding of USD 9,000 which is approximately MYR 36,000. The first pool of pledged funding is proudly sponsored by Kolej Kediaman Raja Dr Nazrin Shah, University of Malaya.
President of Rotary Club of Ampang, Ooi Bee Ngoh, said, “Rotary Club of Ampang is delighted to have Kolej Kediaman Raja Dr. Nazrin Shah supporting our humanitarian objectives. We are proud to be part of this program where it serves 2 causes - by promoting the health of the participants as well as positively impacting the Karen Indigenous People of Myanmar by providing clean water to their isolated village."
