Students raise RM4,200 worth of donations for SSPCA



KUCHING: Two final year students from Limkokwing Institute, Angelina Chai and Joann Nixon, managed to raise RM4,200 worth of donations through their project ‘Buy a Box, Save a Stray’ to help the Sarawak Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA).

Speaking to the project manager, Angelina Chai, who works in a team of five, said that they are all animal lovers and would like to raise more awareness about stray animals among the public.

“Every year, millions of animals end up in shelters all across the globe. Though a lot of these shelters provide outstanding care and attention, there are still limitations to what they can do.

The ‘Buy a Box, Save a Stray’ package, which consists of 5kg rice, 5kg kibbles, Clorox and washing detergent.

“I believe that the most effective way is to raise awareness and educate the public,” she told New Sarawak Tribune.

Chai shared that she had always seen strays around and felt the need to love and take care of the animals.

“And I saw the might of SSPCA as a nonprofit organisation which has helped a lot of stray dogs and cats,” she added.

When asked about the inspiration behind the project, Chai said she was inspired by Kuching Food Aid, which was used to help underprivileged people.

“We were inspired and decided to launch our own movement. Stray animals are also living beings which deserve to be fed and cared for. You don’t need to be an animal lover to feel compassion for them,” she said.

Chai also hopes that this will not be the end of the project and the awareness will not end here.

A total of 42 (10-kg) packs of rice, 23 (15-kg) packs of Kibbles, 12 (10-litre) bottles of Clorox, 23 (5-kg) packs of washing detergent and RM1,000 were handed over to SSPCA.
