KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – An international language training institution based in Kuala Lumpur is launching a fundraising program for earthquake victims in Mindanao.

Royce Language Center’s Principal Sitinor Khajar Binti Nordin said the collected amount will be donated to families affected by the series of temblor that damaged several houses and structures in the region.

The school official said they have actually received applications from students who are locals of Mindanao and among those badly hit by the disaster.

“We would like to help any number of schools as our priority. Being a language school in Malaysia, we do understand the value of education,” Nordin said.

The principal said they wanted to extend assistance to affected school and students in Mindanao as a way to help them recover from the tragedy.

The RLC is planning to make the fundraising a regular event after its success.

“We have never done that before. This is going to be our first experience,” Nordin said.

“We are looking forward to it and if it goes well, we may make fund-raising one of our usual activities,” she added. – MNP (with reports from Maya Barquez)
