Substantial Returns

Malaysian CARE’s partnership with Sunway University College for over 20 years has brought substantial returns, though not in cash but in kind. In particular, the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation Community Scholarship, fully funded by the university and coordinated by Malaysian CARE to cater for students from orphanages as well as poor family backgrounds.

 My dad had diabetes and kidney failure ever since I was young. As he had to go through frequent dialysis, it was impossible for my parents to support me to further my studies. My dream to be a forensic accountant seemed like it was never going to come true.

  Growing up without the comforts of a traditional family, I faced challenges that tested my resilience. Yet, within those challenges, I found the strength to dream.
