The Bar Council Committee on Orang Asli Rights (“COAR”) is organising its biennial Charity Fundraising Dinner in conjunction with the International Human Rights Day. By organising this dinner, COAR seeks to create awareness and education on the rights of the Orang Asli in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This year’s event will focus on the basic needs and rights of Peninsular Malaysia’s indigenous minority, better known as “Orang Asli”.
The Bar Council has for years been advocating the rights of the Orang Asli and has endeavoured to ensure just laws, policies and practices are in place to affirm and protect the rights of the Orang Asli. The proceeds of our charity fundraiser are aimed at continuing this important work.
Most Orang Asli communities live in remote and less developed parts of Peninsular Malaysia. The funds raised will be used to assist with community development and upliftment, non-formal education of women and children, leadership training, securing the Orang Asli’s livelihood, and strengthening their traditional
culture. Additionally, the proceeds will be used to support the ancillary work of COAR in its role as an advocate of Orang Asli rights.
The Charity Fundraising Dinner will include performances by the Orang Asli and a presentation about the Orang Asli.
Do come and support this important and meaningful event, and make a difference in their lives.
