2006 Together We Care Charity Dinner


Cited National Population and Family Development Board statistics that showed there were 19,800 divorces and 150,000 marriages in 2004. Among the reasons cited for broken marriages were irreconcilable differences, irresponsibility and interference by in-laws. Other reasons included drug-addiction, cheating, refusal of permission to take a second wife, and others that involved money, abuse, crime, gambling and alcohol addiction. As the country went through social changes, the family unit was weakening. An increasing number of women are becoming single mothers and this puts them under a lot of financial and emotional strain, where children were also affected.


Organized by S8 Auto, in aid of Yayasan Nanyang Press and the smart partnership Goodyear Servitekar, S8 “Together We Care” Charity Dinner 2006 was a phenomenal success in the industry. A total of RM 545,009.10 has been collected for the welfare of single mothers and their children.

Yayasan Nanyang had been running workshops for single mothers since 2000 and some 700 single mothers had benefited from the foundation’s programmes.

The RM545,009 generated from this event has been channelled into the foundation’s programme and workshops for single mothers and their children such as skills training, counselling, support groups and human development initiatives, and programmes for underpriviledged children.

Mr.Ming Says there were more than half a million single mothers in Malaysia alone and there was a need to empower them to work, instead of just handing them welfare cheques that kept them trapped in a failed system."
