A group of Rotaractors from the Rotaract Club of Petaling Jaya drove more than 125 km to Tapah, Perak to help construct a Chicken Coop for our Orang Asli villagers. The University Students took time off from their busy schedules to lend their helping hands to a deserving cause.
The Chicken Coop is designed to house 100 chickens, and provide for the protein needs for the villagers. The eggs will be harvested daily and help augment the diet and improve the standard of living of the villagers.
The coop was built from 451 bricks and divided into bags weighing nearly 20 kg each. The Rotaractors had to manually carry these bags of bricks from their vehicles, up a steep hill, along a jungle path, before reaching their final destination.
Of course the new mother, Hannah the Goat, was watching over the activities ….
The money to buy the bricks came from a recent event to raise funds which featured Harith Iskander, voted 2016 Funniest Person in the World (Laugh Factory) and Asia’s Best Stand-up Comedian (Winner – Top 10 Asia Mag).
