KUALA LUMPUR: Dignity for Children Foundation, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) dedicated to helping underprivileged children in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, has been awarded the Muhibbah Award (June 2023 edition) today.

The award, presented by the National Press Club (NPC) in collaboration with enterprise solutions platform provider MACROKIOSK, recognises Dignity for Children's outstanding efforts in providing holistic care, education and practical skills training to urban poor children.

NPC president Datuk Ahirudin Attan said that NPC hoped to revive the spirit of muhibbah and contribute to the development of a stronger, more resilient and unified Malaysia.

"Achieving these goals requires participation of the entire nation, starting with instilling the spirit of muhibbah in the younger generation.
"A truly muhibbah Malaysia can only be achieved through the combined efforts of everyone present in this room and beyond," he said during the award presentation.

Ahirudin also said that the recipient chosen for the award this month was highly deserving as the judges recognised their efforts at promoting goodwill.

"This month's winner is truly a worthy recipient of the award as the judges recognised and commended their endeavours in promoting goodwill and friendship regardless of race, religion and nationality.

"Dignity for Children has also been supporting children of needy foreign nationals, which exemplifies the exact kind of muhibbah spirit that the award aims to acknowledge and foster," he added.

MACROKIOSK chief executive officer Datuk Kenny Goh congratulated Dignity for Children, applauding the NGO's efforts to break the cycle of poverty through transformative education.

"The judges were particularly impressed by their (Dignity for Children) efforts as they truly embodied the spirit of Muhibbah.

"We hope that this award will continue to inspire others, as well as impact the future generations, to further encourage muhibbah as a part of the Malaysian way of life," he said.

In April, the NPC and MACROKIOSK launched the NPC-Macrokiosk Muhibbah Awards to honour individuals, groups and organisations that best show the true spirit of muhibbah in Malaysia.

The award includes a cash prize of RM2,000, a certificate and vouchers from top regional brands such as Tealive, Jaya Grocer and natural yoghurt brand llaollao.
