In an effort to raise funds to support women and children suffering from abuse, violence and discrimination, Perak Women for Women Society (PWW) organised a charity concert titled, ‘A Walk Back in Time’.

The show was held at Syeun Hotel Ipoh on Friday, May 26 and Saturday, May 27 in conjunction with International Women's Day.

Starring talented singers Angela Saik and Kam Fatt, the event featured theme songs from various Hong Kong television series and Cantonese pop hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s. It took the audience back in time to the glorious days of Cantopop.

The audience was also enthralled by three-time Malaysia Elvis Impersonation Competition champion, Paul Lee, who performed a couple of compositions by ‘the King’. A Chinese folk tale called ‘The Butterfly Lovers’, enacted by students of City Ballet, was the other highlight.

Established in 2003, PWW is an apolitical, not for profit non-governmental organisation whose objective is to enhance the status and lives of women in Perak regardless of race, religion and social background. It also provides assistance to women and children suffering from violence and discrimination.

The society offers temporary shelter for victims of abuse, violence and any other situations that warrant help. Since the services are provided free of charge, PWW is dependent on public donations to function.

Readers wishing to contribute in kind can channel funds (cash or cheque) to its RHB account: 2081 0000 36125.
