CNY in a big family

Dear members and friends of Malaysia,

MAF would like to thank all of those who are choosing to spending the coming weekend’s CNY celebration with the MAF family. A lot of you have shown sincere support to our community effort, MAF would like to express our highest gratitude to all of you.

On a side note, MAF understands that the price of the CNY meal may be prohibitive to some large families or those who are encountering seasonal hardship. On that regard, MAF will offer to subsidise part of the meal, on a case by case basis, depending on the circumstances.

If you fall into this category, and do not wish to spend CNY alone, write to MAF! We do our best to cater to your request.

For the rest, the registration is still ongoing, join us!
