LETTER | Projek Bangsa Malaysia’s fundraiser concert "Derma Kilat Rakyat" will be streamed live on Facebook on Saturday, July 17, 11am - 4pm.
This benefit concert, with a lineup of performances and appearances by Malaysian icons and stars such as Bront Palarae, Douglas Lim, Altimet, Nazir Razak and Tony Fernandes, aims to raise RM3 million.
The funds raised will be channelled to Malaysian NGOs actively providing aid to Malaysians in need as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
This effort follows a recent video released by Projek Bangsa Malaysia highlighting the plight of frontliners which brought to light the heartbreaking condition of Covid-19-ravaged Malaysia.
In the video, frontliners likened Malaysia to Italy 2020 and India 2021, saying that the Covid-19 death toll released by the Health Ministry are in fact lower than the actual numbers.
When asked about participating in this initiative, multiple award winning actor Bront Palarae said: “I am just happy to be invited and be part of this initiative. We Malaysians are all in this together and hopefully through this initiative, we are able to contribute and help our society in these trying times.”
The online concert will be streamed on Projek Bangsa Malaysia’s Facebook and donations from the public can be made to sinar.tv/donation.
