‘Give Water Project by BROS’ is a collaboration with World Vision Malaysia and aims to raise RM100,000 to fund World Vision Malaysia?s water projects in Laos and Cambodia. A special limited edition water bottle series was produced for this project, each bottle carries words of wisdom from five celebrities
Water is an essential human need but not available to all. Water poor communities are typically economically poor as they suffer from thirst, poor health, sanitation and social deprivation. Easy access to clean and safe water creates stepping stones for a joyful future as children are able to attend school regularly. It also creates healthy communities and enables micro-enterprises.
In an effort to build a future for thirsty communities, BROS and World Vision Malaysia are collaborating on the ‘Give Water Project by BROS’ with a special limited edition water bottle series to raise RM100,000 for World Vision Malaysia?s water projects in Laos and Cambodia.
‘Give Water Project by BROS’ Gives Joy to Thirsty Communities
To top it off, five local and international celebrities who are also World Vision Malaysia’s ambassadors have also joined hands in supporting the ?Give Water Project By BROS? by embedding personal and inspiring quotes to these specially designed bottles. The celebrities and their inspiring quotes:
1. Aniu – Singer/Director/Actor: “Spread a little love and happiness. It makes the world go round”
2. Nicholas Teo – Singer/Actor: “Everyone has the right to dream and the courage to hope under the same sky”
3. Owen Yap – TV Personality: “For every will there is a way. It may be a long way but hope will keep you company”
4. Lee Sinje – Artist: “Live in the moment”
5. Francissca Peter – World Vision Malaysia Ambassador/Singer/Songwriter: “The glass should never be full ‘cos there would be no room to make things better. It?s good to top it up a little everyday; fulfill your dreams and be a source of hope for others”
BROS – Living Wing Sdn Bhd Business Development Director, Terence Lee Soon Teck said, “We are saddened by the fact that globally more than 1,600 children under 5 years old die every day from diarrhea caused by unsafe water. Women and children also have to bear the burden of walking for hours unprotected to collect water that is most likely contaminated. As a result, we decided to make a difference with the ‘Give Water Project by BROS’ to help thirsty communities gain access to clean water. We hope to raise RM100,000 through this initiative so we can help build a future for thirsty communities”.
“We are honoured to collaborate with World Vision Malaysia and the five World Vision Malaysia ambassadors in this project. They have taken a personal interest by sharing their inspiring words of wisdom which have been crafted onto the BROS limited edition water bottle especially for this project. Through this initiative, we hope we will pass on our blessings of access to clean water daily to thirsty communities and give them much joy,” he added.
“World Vision Malaysia is pleased to partner with BROS on the ‘Give Water Project by BROS’ which provides a channel for Malaysians to contribute to communities in need of clean water and sanitation access in Laos and Cambodia. World Vision has a sustainable development model for clean water which gives communities ownership of the clean water source. We train communities to maintain water points so that water continues to flow long after our work concludes,? said Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of World Vision Malaysia, Liew Tong Ngan”.
To kick start the project, BROS has donated to World Vision Malaysia 5,000 pieces of the ‘Give Water Project by BROS’ celebrity endorsed limited edition water bottles in support of the water projects in Laos and Cambodia.
Members of the public can support this initiative by purchasing the ‘Give Water Project by BROS’ limited edition water bottles as part of their Christmas shopping or back to school preparations. The prices range from RM19.90 to RM28.90.
