I had a great opportunity given by @mahar.relief to spend a fabulous weekend attended a Doctors Worldwide Humanitarian Medical Aid Course 2017 on the 7th and 8th October at Welcome Collection, London. It was indeed a good exposure and I had a great time to be part of the delegates who are in the same medical field and sharing a same passion in humanitarianism. They came from whole over UK, with lot of experience of working round the world with vast medical projects. Again, this course is a good starter especially for those who has an interest in humanitarian disaster relief like me.

This assembly is one of the largest youth assembly attended by over 1000 youths from 22 countries. The theme for the 20th session of this youth assembly was “Society For All : Equity and Inclusion for a Sustainable future”, focusing on the aspect of youth in going towards more peaceful, inclusive and sustainable societies. I had an opportunity to experience 4 days full of knowledge in understanding more about Sustainable Development Goals and inclusive society. I met with new people from all over the world and it enriched my life through understanding that there are different cultures and distinct human perspective. For that reason, it shows me that there is contrast in ways of thinking. The most overwhelming thing was when I got to be at the one of the most important places on earth - United Nations headquarter in New York, where most of the vital resolution of humanity are taken.

Being in the General Assembly Hall makes me realised that there were important people being in a same room as I was, striving to shape a better world and future for humankind. Through every session and throughout the summit, I could say that the delegates including myself had the same passion in condemning injustices in every level possible. A societal transformation is needed where every person and every sector are involved, leaving no one behind in order to create peaceful, inclusive and sustainable future. I am glad that I had the opportunity to attend such a prestigious assembly where I learned so much about inclusivity and this assembly also positively change my outlook in life.

It was two weeks ago when I first arrived in Moscow, Russia to attend the World Festival of Youth & Students (WFYS) organized by the Russian Federation. The three days in Izhevsk for the regional program, followed by 6-days in Sochi for the festival, have broadened my mind on youth involvement worldwide. The event which gathered almost 30,000 young people all over the world packed with cultural, educational, information technology and many other programs, organized mainly to create the platform for youth to share, gather opinions and experiences in changing the world for a better future.

During this period, I met many motivated and lively young people from various educational backgrounds and regions. There weren’t any vibes of hatred, jealousy or even racism among the participants. All gathered for unity, love and friendship. I have also managed to share my experiences working in the humanitarian field with other participants and attended conferences and workshops related to humanitarian and youth development while getting to know people of the same field.

I am honoured to have been selected as one of the participants of the festival and represent Malaysia as well as youth all over the globe. It was indeed, a priceless opportunity and memorable experience to be part of the festival. I herewith like to extend my deepest gratitude to Malaysian Humanitarian Aid and Relief (MAHAR) for the opportunity given to participate in the event. Thank you MAHAR and thanks Russia for the excellent hospitality. You guys are LIT!

The role of NGOs in a country like Lebanon is shifting from relief to development and sustainability. Currently there are an estimated 2 million Syrian refugees residing in Lebanon. Together with ACA, our local partner in Lebanon, we are able to identify the needs of the refugee artisan group (12 carpenters and 10 tailors) and to curate an implementation plan that increases their access to market and income. As of 2017, we were able to collaborate with one local designer and one international company in increasing their collective income through securing job orders amounting to USD6,000. The partnerships formed with the designer and the international company is expected to be long term. At the same time, we are able to add one sales platform through securing a place to display and sell specifically designed artisanal products for the Malaysian Battalion base camp in Lebanon.

MAHAR Lebanon was also able to conduct needs assessments with 5 NGO groups working with Palestinian and Syrian refugees group. Input from the needs assessment was directed to the MYCORPS programme.
