The Star featured VUBC Charity Ride @ ULC

KUALA LUMPUR: While some people may not be feeling too charitable during this season of giving, a group of cycling enthusiasts pedalled some 16km just to raise funds for refugee children.

Twenty cyclists from the Van’s Urban Bicycle Co community rode from Section 16, Petaling Jaya, heading for the United Learning Centre, a school for Myanmar refugee children, in Jalan Imbi.

The group raised about RM5,000 from their community members, which was used to buy essentials such as rice, powdered milk, stationery, clothes and blankets for the school’s students.

“We felt we needed to help these unfortunate children. Some of their parents are away working, at far places, while some of them are abandoned. “We came here to bring them food and cheer them up while their parents are away,” said Vanessa Cheah, the founder of Van’s Urban Bicycle.

About 30 students were present at the school and they were treated to breakfast.

The children, aged between four and 16, also had a fun time as they were given free rides on the bicycles within the school area.

“This is the first time our group organised a charity ride like this. It is really amazing to see children so happy. It is, after all, a time for giving,” said Cheah.

The school’s founder Jonathan Tanhla thanked the group.

“We appreciate all the people who have come and helped us in our cause,” said Tanhla, who established the school in 2008.

The children, who are mostly of the Chin ethnicity from Myanmar, are taught English, Mathematics, Science and Bahasa Malaysia.
