We are immensely grateful to Informa Markets for our recent collaboration on the Walk the World event in Kuala Lumpur on October 24, 2023. With 70 participants from Informa Markets and 5 from OrphanCare Foundation, the day was a major success filled with community, camaraderie, and a shared passion for making a difference.
Our staff who had the pleasure of participating had a wonderful time and enjoyed conversations with their Informa Markets counterparts knowing the enriching impact this event will leave behind. Walk the World stands out as a shining example of what genuine collaboration can achieve. Here’s a deep dive into how this happened:
OrphanCare and Informa Markets: A Partnership Built on Shared Values
Our journey with Informa Markets began at a KIND Malaysia event at MITEC. What brought us together was more than just our shared dedication to addressing child abandonment in Malaysia. It was the mutual values and a shared vision for relentless actions towards our mission to ensure that every child is cherished and finds a family to call their own.
OrphanCare’s varied initiatives extend support to parents in distress and work diligently to ensure children find solace in the embrace of loving families. Among our many undertakings, the Baby Hatch program, especially, provides an immediate sanctuary for newborns, giving them not just care, but a promising start to life. Such impactful initiatives like these and the tangible change we bring about that inspire organizations like Informa Markets to continue their collaboration and deepen their commitment to our shared cause.
OrphanCare had the chance to talk with Mr. Hamizan Razali and Mr. Gerard Leeuwenburgh about the event.
Mr. Hamizan Razali:”Our partnership with OrphanCare started after a memorable interaction at KIND Malaysia. We saw the essential work OrphanCare does for child abandonment in Malaysia, and we wanted to help.’’
Mr. Gerard Leeuwenburgh:”Every year, different teams lead ‘Walk the World’, showing our ongoing commitment to giving back.”
This partnership isn’t just about funding. It’s about highlighting the role both community and corporations have in solving big issues.
The Walk the World event was a moving reminder of the importance of partnerships. Our team members who participated were touched by the compassion and commitment to making a difference in the lives of orphans.
Yaya, Orphancare Foundation Advocacy and Communication Officer: “The key moment and highlight of this event was when we got divided into groups and got to know one another. The missions were exhilarating, and when our group, Group 7, won the mission, it was a moment of joy. It’s been a while since I participated in such an event and the connection, fun, and excitement were unparalleled. Knowing that Informa Markets supports OrphanCare’s mission and contributions is incredibly motivating.”
Maizurah, Orphancare Foundation Senior Caregiver cum Adoption Officer: “Connecting with such a significant company like Informa Markets and seeing their genuine interest in our mission was deeply meaningful. Their staff’s awareness and commitment to helping vulnerable children and families further exemplified the importance of our collaborative efforts.”
To Informa Markets, thank you again for diving into Walk the World and making waves for Malaysia’s children!
