Compassion for the Poor


The Association of Wives of State Assemblymen Perak (BAIDURI) and Yayasan Bina Upaya (YBU) jointly hosted a Chinese New Year party for 500 senior citizens, single mothers and orphans at the Menteri Besar’s residence recently. The event was officiated by Datin Seri Saripah Zulkifli, President of BAIDURI and wife of Menteri Besar Perak. It was graced by the MB himself and several executive councillors and their wives. The event was preceded by a lion dance performance. BAIDURI choir, led by Datin Seri Saripah, sang a medley of songs to entertain the crowd. The presentation of money, micro-credit cheques and house keys to 42 deserving recipients consisting of senior citizens, single mothers and the hardcore poor was the grand finale. This altruistic gesture would continue into the Year of the Rabbit, said the BAIDURI President.
