MNBC 1st Waterhole of 2010

The first waterhole of 2010 was held at the Norwegian Ambassador’s residence and as usual it turned out to be a great evening. Members and business partners enjoyed light refreshments and toasted to a succesful start of the new year.

During the evening, the Malaysian-Norwegian Business Council (MNBC) donated RM45,000 to the charity organisation, Living Hope, to build an education resource centre for Orang Asli children in Pahang.
MNBC president Oivind Bjorkhaug handed over the contribution to Living Hope founder Dr Peggy C. Wong at the residence of the Norwegian ambassador, Arild Braastad, here Thursday.
The centre would benefit some 200 less fortunate Orang Asli children in Semoa, Raub.
Wong said the money would be used to erect the building, purchase furniture, books and second-hand or new computers for the children.
Living Hope has, through donations, helped more than 17,000 children in Malaysia with education, food and school bags, books and stationery.
