Wanita MCA to help in by-elections

The Star News: Monday March 16, 2009

THE Wanita MCA will be stationing its members to help out at the upcoming by-elections, said its chief Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun.

“We will station members at the launch of the by-election campaign at Bukit Selambau on March 27 and Bukit Gantang on March 28,” she said after launching the Guan Yin Bamboo Groove at the Chempaka Buddhist Lodge (CBL) yesterday.

Commenting on the issue of declaring assets, she said it was a good practice but questioned the level of transparency.

Many devotees thronged the Buddhist lodge as the launch also coincided with the Bodhisattva Guan Yin’s birthday celebrations.

CBL president Liew Chang Huat said the Guan Yin Bamboo Groove project, which began in 2007, is partly complete and the work for the beautification of the surroundings and the installation of 33 forms of Guan Yin images was still in process.

The Chempaka Buddhist Lodge is looking for 1,000 sponsors for the Guan Yin Bamboo Groove project at RM1,000 per sponsor.

There will also be a charity concert on June 6 at SJK (C) Yuk Chai to raise funds for the Chempaka Welfare Home.

“We hope to buy the house next to the home to provide more space for the children,” Liew said.
The home, situated next to CBL, occupies two houses. It will cost about RM525,000 to buy the adjoining unit.

CBL can be contacted at 03-7880 3936.
