On 15th December 2019, PWD Smart Farmability joined hands with the residents of USJ3C for a mini charity carnival.
The one-day event started from 10 a.m. and lasted until 1:30 p.m. in the neighbourhood area, near the community event space, The Hive.
As a way to support and establish a shared prosperity community, 20% of the sales made from all the stalls present that day will be donated to Touch Dialysis Centre.
Items for sale in the carnival included mouth-watering dishes and snacks like cookies, nasi lemak, kuih-muih, and drinks of all kinds. Other items for sale that day included a vast selection of household essentials, perfumes, potted plants, and fresh vegetables.
Apart from that, PWD's HOPE Box, aka the world's first Organic Vegetable Terrarium, was also introduced to the visitors. Dr Billy Tang, PWD's founder, presented the box as PWD's project to provide a "kebun mampan" (sustainable farm) for the lower-income community as an effort to scale up nutrition in the country. Visitors were also highly encouraged to subscribe and bring a HOPE Box home. Read more about its benefits here: [Link]
Dr Billy expressed his gratitude to the team for inviting PWD to the carnival and allowing them to raise awareness for their cause. He adds that he is honoured to be able to represent the disabled community in urban farming and is very optimistic about the adoption of the HOPE Box in Malaysia.
If you are in Klang Valley, Malaysia and would like to support us, subscribe to or adopt a HOPE Box here.
If you are outside Klang Valley or Malaysia, you can make nutritious food available to the marginalized by adopting a HOPE Box for only RM150 or $35. HOPE Box allows beneficiaries to harvest organic regenerative vegetables from an enclosed terrarium for 3-months.
