KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 – The unique Kind Malaysia Expo will be back this year as a three-day virtual expo that will once again showcase the best of Malaysian kindness from civil society programmes, corporate social responsibility initiatives, and everyday Malaysians who are working towards the betterment of the communities.
“From economic uncertainties to the lack of physical interaction, there is no doubt that the pandemic has upended the lives of many. Amidst all the news of gloom and doom, however, Kind Malaysia 2021 seeks to highlight the importance of kindness and compassion in these times of adversity,” the organisers of the event said in a recent press statement.
The last event was held in 2018 and since then, Kind Malaysia has served as a platform for like-minded individuals to connect with each other and share ideas that will inspire and promote a culture of kindness.
With ongoing travel restrictions during the pandemic, Kind Malaysia 2021 has designed a virtual experience themed ‘Time To Be Kind’ that is aimed at encouraging dialogue among participants – all from the safety and convenience of their own homes.
This year’s virtual event, themed “Time To Be Kind,” will run between September 7 to 9 from
10 am to 4 pm.
Among others, the event will feature panels and talks, while participants will get to know the latest in humanitarian innovations and best current practices being employed by both civil society and the corporate sector.
Key panel discussion topics during the three-day event include “Humanity During Hard Times” and “Corporates’ Role During Crisis” with confirmed speakers being Chairman of Ecoworld Bhd Foundation Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, Advisor for Star Media Group Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai, Actor, Comedian and Founder of TheHope Harith Iskander, and former CEO of National Water Services Commission (SPAN) Dato’ Teo Yen Hua.
Aside from a lively online exhibition of non-profit initiatives, a virtual networking lounge will be set up as space for participants to link up and explore potential opportunities for collaborations. Kind Malaysia 2021 is also offering complimentary exhibitor passes for selected organisations, including corporate foundations, non-governmental organisations, support groups, and welfare associations, to allow them to showcase their humanitarian programmes
and innovations to a larger audience.
Among the names behind this unique initiative include Tan Sri Asmat Kamaludin – Chairman of DSA Exhibition And Conference Sdn Bhd; Dato’ Sri Hj Mustapa Hj Ali – President of Asia Pacific Security Association; Datuk Dr. M Gandhi – Founder and Chairman of Bumiati Holdings Sdn Bhd; Datuk Azzat Kamaludin – Director of DSA Exhibition And Conference Sdn Bhd.
