ICAAM Charity Contribution to The Semai Orang Asli Community, Cameron Highland

Seremban's Orang Asli House0001 (1)

The Semai Orang Asli Community (45 families) of the 17th Mile off Jalan Pahang, Cameron Highland needed financial help to upgrade their living standard from poverty level. This was the conclusion drawn by Dr Benen Foo Ban Nyen and his fellow members of the Tropicana Mother Teresa Charity Group after their maiden visit to this Community deep in the jungle.

Several projects were presented to Dr Benen Foo the Special Advisor of ICAAM by Mr Christe Arokiasamy who devotes his life as a volunteer to help. The ICAAM Committee decided to fund RM40,000.00 into the construction of a 4 feet wide and about 5 km long concrete Path which has now completed and has impacted the daily activities of the said Community in particular the children who can now travel to and back from school in clean shoes and uniforms unlike before especially during raining seasons.

These were taken at the Church of Visitation in Seremban. The RM10,000.00 from ICAAM was donated
to the said church for building a house for the poor orang asli community near Seremban Town.
