Mouse mommy and MR love the Himmel dehydrated fruits! Mouse mommy and MR were loved to eat the dehydrated red dragon fruit, it is naturally sweet and taste nice without feeling guilty to enjoy it!

The Malaysian Retail Chain Association (MRCA), in collaboration with McMillan Woods, Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism (KPDNKK) along with major retailers, has successfully raised over RM100,000 through the MRCACharity and Carnival Run 2017, held at OneCity, Subang Jaya today. This amount will be donated for the betterment of 10 selected charitable homes in the city.

Themed “Care, Share & Run,” the event managed to attract more than 3,000 runners this year. There were also a total of 550 children from orphanages who were invited by the association to join in for the fun and games at the event’s specially-curated kids carnival.

The children from charity homes were enjoying the run and have fun in the carnival too! Colourful balloons with happening performance and games bring laugh and happiness to everyone! Such a thoughtful ideas of the organiser!

“This fourth edition charity event proves MRCA’s continuous vision to give back to the society. We believe that through this, we have brought a smile to the faces of these beautiful children as well as senior citizens – this would have been an impossible feat without the support of our fellow Malaysian retailers as well as the public,” added Dato’ Choi Wei Yee.

The proceeds from this event will be donated to Rumah Charis, Angel Homes, Good Kids, Juara Home, Ace Lighthouse Academy Bhd, Kiwanis Club of Kluang Mandarin, Home of Love, Rumah Sayangan, Persatuan Insan Istimewa Cheras, and Good Samaritan Homes.

We believe that it’s impossible for one to help everyone; but everyone can help one person.”

Dato’ Garry Chua, President of MRCA, echoed, “We are happy to see such strong support for our annual charity event. We hope that the support of MRCA, along with the nation’s major retailers, will inspire commitment from other corporate bodies to our cause of bringing hope, strength and joy to these underprivileged Malaysians for the betterment of their lives.”

Meanwhile, Tan Sri Datuk Seri Dr. M Kayveas said, “I am extremely thankful to be here today as the guest of honour for MRCA’s charity event.
