Meru Valley’s Patchwork Society Raises RM17,000 for Disabled Children  

Meru Valley’s Patchwork Society raised more than RM17,000 to support the care of  disabled children at its 13th annual charity bazaar on Saturday, November 7. 

Visitors bought festive gifts in support of the children from Pusat Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Setia, Silibin; from beautiful hand-sewn batik face masks, bags and purses to kidstoys as well as fresh vegetables from Cameron Highlands.  

Founder of the Patchwork Society, Datin Mina Ushiama, said: “Stringent SOPs meant we  never expected such a good turnout. Some local and international friends who couldn’t make it to the bazaar purchased our crafts via WhatsApp.” 

Thanking Papa Harvest, an e-commerce shop which sells fresh produce, she said: “I would  like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Fong from Cameron Highlands for selling fresh  vegetables together in this bazaar in support of charity.”  

Ms Mei, a member of the resort who shopped for her family and niece said: “I bought 2 pre-loved toys for my niece, then a tape-made bag for myself and some fresh vegetables for my mother.”  

For those who have missed the charity bazaar, the patchwork society will be selling their  items via Meru Valley Resort’s e-bazaar on their Facebook page. 

The Meru Valley Patchwork Society was initiated by Datin Mina Ushiama, with the support  of the resort’s management. Twelve ladies of various nationalities get together every  Tuesday for the love and passion of handicraft and sewing at the Common Room in the  clubhouse.
