They say people can only live fully by helping others to live. The one act that lives by these words is the act of volunteering. Promoting altruism, goodness and a feeling of self worth, volunteering brings immense benefits for the volunteer as well as for the person or community served.

Here you can find a lot of volunteer activities related in different topics (education, environment, poverty, animals, etc). It was an awesome experience.
It was my first time volunteering and I got to work with children, dogs and homeless people. It was a great experience to give something back and I felt at home in Ampang.
Volunteering here was a way to learn about the culture and the needs of the people of this country. I am grateful of this experience where I learned many skills and become more aware about charity. Grazie!
We are really glad that we made the decision to come here. The experience of volunteering with different communities was priceless. Thank you for the awesomeness!

Malaysia is a colourful and fascinating country. The 3 main races - Malays, Indians and Chinese live side by side intertwined with our language, the tradition, and culture, offering wide range of experience which cannot be found anywhere else. An enchanting land by the magnitude of contrasts that is concealed in this country. Here you will find deep traditional and cultural roots existing side by side with the modern impact of globalization. Malaysia is the only country on the globe with unity in diversity. Malaysia is also a land of fairy tales, world's largest flowers, princesses, warriors, tigers and tapirs. With a proud history of forts and cannons left behind by the Portuguese and Dutch. Our rain forest are a millions years old. Our cities offer you overcrowded malls, markets and sky scrapers. Paddy fields as far as the eye can see dot our kampungs. And food! Savor our curries, noodles and sambals. 24 hour restaurants to cater to your hunger. Malaysian hospitality is true here. We live it.
Malaysians love food. It's apparent in our restaurants which are sometimes open 24 hours. We are world ranked in badminton and squash, thanks to Datuk Lee Chong Wei and Datuk Nicol David. Durians, the king of fruits is banned from taxis, flights and hotels. We drive on the Left side of the road. Coffees and teas are sweetened with TONS of sugar. Malaysians eat a lot of rice everyday. LOCAL time has been adjusted on several occasions. On Dec 31, 1932, clocks were advanced by 20 minutes to "lengthen" daylight; Sept 1, 1941, sped up another 10 minutes; 1942, fast forwarded two hours to follow Tokyo time; 1945, reverted to the time observed in 1941, and on Jan 1, 1982, pushed forward 30 minutes so that Sabah, Sarawak and the peninsula followed Malaysian Standard Time.
MALAYSIA is home to 14,500 species of flowering plants and trees, more than 200 species of mammals, 600 species of bids, 140 species of snakes and 60 species of lizards. The largest undivided leaf in the world, Alocasia macrorrhiza, comes from Sabah. A specimen found in 1966 was 3.02 metres long and 1.92 metres wide. The largest insect egg in Malaysia comes from the 15 cm Malaysian Stick Insect (Heteopteryx dilitata), which lays eggs that measure 1.3 cm, making them larger than a peanut.
Receiving something as simple as a postcard will bring a huge smile to their faces. It might seem a small gesture but for parents, doctors and the nurses caring for these children, it means a lot to see these children smile.
The purpose of sending postcards to children with serious medical conditions is to bring them cheer and help them forget about their medical needs, at least for a short while. Postcards allow them a glimpse into other countries, and give them a sense of adventure.
The purpose of sending postcards to youths in juvenile correctional facilities is to encourage and motivate them and lift their spirits by sending them a friendly note from a place far away. They may have made mistakes in life but they are still not much more than children, and all children love to have friends and love to receive mail about interesting things and places.
Receiving something as simple as a postcard might seem a small gesture but will bring a huge smile to their faces. Postcards allow them a glimpse into other countries and peoples lives, and give them a sense of adventure.
