Malaysians have become less united over the years but prominent social activist Datin Paduka A. Mangalam (pic) is optimistic that “the goodness of my fellow countrymen will prevail at the end of the day”.
The adviser to the Interfaith Spiritual Fellowship (Insaf) cited her own life experiences as proof, having witnessed orphans and the needy from all races being housed under one roof and making the place home to all.
The event planned by LEAGOO, was to further strengthen the sustainability of LEAGOO's operations and also the communities.
