Concert in aid of young refugees

HELP University in collaboration with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) under Project Self-Help will be organising a charity concert by the Canticle Singers on Feb 24 and 25. The event will raise funds to provide free educational opportunities for young refugees in Malaysia.
This project is ongoing to enable refugees to gain some skills that will enable them to earn an income and live independently regardless of their circumstances, and provide them with dignity and self-respect.
Giving pointers : A Project Self- Help class being conducted for refugees.
HELP University has designed a special programme for the refugees where they attend practical classes in a few areas such as English, hospitality, culinary skills, auto mechanics and multimedia.
Classes are ongoing for the refugees but funds are needed so more can attend the classes which are conducted by experienced tutors.
To raise funds for this Project Self-Help, HELP University has arranged a musical evening with the Canticle Singers titled “Odds and Ends”, an arrangement of solo duets and choral songs for the entertainment of the public who are invited to this event.
Those who enjoy music are invited to HELP University, Conference Hall, BZ-2, Pusat Bandar Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.
