WHAT WE AIM TO ACHIEVE

19 artists, representing 8 different nationalities, have generously donated their incredible artworks for the sole purpose of supporting orphanages and shelters for abandoned and street children in Indonesia, Malaysia and India. It is a reminder that we can rise above our own challenges and still be able to extend a helping hand to those who are not yet capable of helping themselves. This is our chance to bring to life the word ‘kind’ inherent in ‘humankind’, to reassure that they are not alone and they must keep a million dreams alive.

CONTEXT

Why Do This?

Giving is about making a difference – to real people with real lives and real-life stories. These troubled times across the globe changed the perception of need and a sense of community. It allowed us to appreciate and evaluate the very fundamentals of our existence. So long as the sun rises, for most people, this means another chance to re-emerge and grow stronger, but this is not the case for many abandoned children and orphans in developing countries across Asia.

45% CLOSED

Give a Helping Hand

The fact is that many charity initiatives are stalled or closed down due to COVID-19. According to the Institute of Fundraising (UK), 45% of charities will close down as an aftermath of this pandemic. What that means to the orphanage houses and shelters for abandoned and street children is a struggle for survival in the short and long-term: food, healthcare, elementary hygiene, and education. This is our chance to bring to life the word ‘kind’ inherent in ‘humankind’.
