Charity – WWF Malaysia

What is WWF ? WWF stands for World Wide Fund For Nature. It was formerly known as the World Wildlife Fund but adopted its current name to show that it also works on other environmental issues, and not just wildlife.

WWF Malaysia

WWF Malaysia was established on 13th January 1972. WWF Malaysia early work focused on scientific research of wildlife and important natural habitats. This later expanded to the management of protected areas. Today, their work covers the broader issues of the natural environment, incorporating such aspects as policy work, environmental education, public awareness and campaigns.

WWF’s Mission – to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.

What WWF Malaysia Works?

  • Species
    The tropical rainforests, seas and freshwater ecosystems of Malaysia support a rich and diverse array of both flora and fauna species; in fact, Malaysia is recognised as one of 12 mega-diversity countries with many of its species occurring in unusually high densities. However, many of these species are threatened. Recognising this issue, WWF Malaysia work towards the protection and management of six different species through landscape-based approaches.
  • Forests
    An estimated 13 hectares of the world’s forest are lost. In the next 30 seconds, another 13 hectares will disappear. Within a minute, mankind succeeds in undoing 1,000 years of natural evolution. Read on to understand a little more about our forests work and how you can help them to change for the better.
  • Freshwater
    Freshwater is perhaps the most crucial resource for humans and all other living creatures on earth. Sufficient clean water is essential for healthy living as well as the health of the environment. Our freshwater ecosystems continually face numerous threats and challenges. Recognising this, WWF-Malaysia promotes the conservation, integrated management and sustainable use of the freshwater ecosystems.
  • Marine
    Malaysia’s warm tropical seas are home to some of the richest coral reefs, mangrove forests, green sea turtles and other endangered marine species such as hawksbill turtles, dugongs, whale sharks, and humphead wrasse. This vast sea area is rich with fishery resources and habitats. Fish are an important sustainable resource but overfishing and habitat destruction can threaten this.
  • Environmental education
    Today the world is changing at an accelerated pace and the need for effective conservation education is much more pressing. WWF-Malaysia believes that effective conservation education programmes, both formal and community based, can have a tremendous impact on the Malaysian society and the nation’s behaviour towards its environment.
  • Policy
    WWF-Malaysia has been involved in policy work for over 20 years. To be effective in policy advocacy work, they adopt various approaches and optimise on effective partnerships to promote the establishment of policies, plans, programmes and legislation that integrate environmental concerns for sustainable development.

If you want to help WWF Malaysia, you can participate in their Save the Day Campaign 2010, become their volunteer or internship or donate them to help them to work better.

Charity – Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)

6 weeks after Haiti earthquake, another massive earthquake with a magnitude of 8.8 has struck central Chile on 27th Feb 2010.

Where is Chile ?

Two million people were affected, as the death toll rises above 700. The country’s president has declared Chile a “state of catastrophe”. The collapse of bridges tossed and crushed cars, and complicated efforts to reach quake-damaged areas by road. Buildings slumped and fell. Millions of people fled into streets darkened by the failure of power lines. They are now in dire need of food, water and shelter.

They needs our helps!
