The Big Heart of Cherita-ble Giving

Pertubuhan Cahaya Hawwa, or Percaya, is an NGO dedicated to uplifting and empowering women in need. Despite still being in its infancy, the three women behind the organisation are no strangers to community work, having organised the Sebalang Kasih initiative annually since 2016, which aims to ensure the poor and the less fortunate have kuih raya during the festive Raya period.

As we look to "Invest in Women, Accelerate Progress" this International Women's Day, we listen to the stories of Percaya's co-founders on their mission to make a difference. We explore the importance of helping communities in need, no matter how small, working with and supporting single mothers in KL, and their upcoming Cherita Kasih Kita fundraising event that will look to purchase 1000 balang of kuih raya from single mothers to distribute to underprivileged kids around Klang Valley.
