More than 70 Syrian refugee children had a fun-filled day when they were treated to a movie outing at GCS Cinemas in Kuala Lumpur recently.
It was indeed an invaluable experience for 70 volunteers from QI Group’s Malaysia office to join the children from Jasmine Ash-Sham Alternative Education Centre to watch “The Incredibles 2”, everyone’s favourite superhero family.
Shabana Begum, a first-time volunteer shared her excitement. “This is my first SSR event and when I heard that the movie outing will be involving the kids, I joined right away without hesitation.”
The SSR event was a success as it was attended by 140 people, by far one of the largest SSR events organised this year.
Another volunteer, Norul Hafizah who has actively participated in the previous SSR events said, “This was a different SSR activity and it’s something that I look forward to again in the future.”
Jasmine Ash Sham’s Alternative Education Center was established in 2016 by an NGO, Malaysia Life Line for Syria (MLLFS) to provide quality education to Syrian refugee children who have sought asylum in Malaysia. Currently, they are home to 90 students aged from 7-18 years old.
