Sunway-TES students raise RM20,000 to alleviate hunger

The End Child Hunger Fun Walk held recently in aid of World Vision, organised by a group of Sunway ACCA students successfully highlighted the plight of the victims of the West African Famine Crisis 2012. Christopher Louis Tan, an ACCA student of Sunway College and the project director shared “This idea was started by my 3 roommates and I who wanted to do something that can break the perception that people have about accountants being bean counters. We chose World Vision because the famine crisis is very new and affects 12 million people in the Sahel region. About 300,000 children are malnourished and are in urgent need of medical aid and food. Many families are surviving on only one meal a day.”
