Holistic Integrated Services Bhd (HISTEAM) organised a "Holistic Charity Golf Tournament 2023 - Swing for Love" at Kelab Golf Miri on 15 July to raise funds for urban underprivileged families. HISTEAM was honoured to have YB Adam Yii Siew Sang, Mayor of Miri cum Pujut Assemblyman, as the guest of honour. The funds raised from this charity golf tournament will be channelled to 7979 Manna Food Bank and Seed Fund of Yuan-Han Journeying Together. There were 92 golfers participated in this year’s tournament.
The organising committee Chairwoman, Sis. Deborah Wong hoped that more 7979 Care Stations can be established in Sarawak and Sabah, to widen the scope of underprivileged they could help, particularly, the elderly and single mothers with young children.
CEO of HISTEAM, Rev. Andrew Wong expressed that in this coming three years, HISTEAM will channel more resources and put in more effort to assist the indigenous people in the interior of East Malaysia. What appears to be an act of compassion in response to the toiling masses is in fact an act of justice to repay the debt owed to East Malaysian due to past political situation. We live by what we get, but we make lives by what we give.
A sudden storm hit on the morning of the event with continuous downpours till 12 noon, our scheduled short gun tees off time for this charity golf event. The organising committee decided to delay the starting time by 1 hour. The golfers were enjoying their tea and mingled around happily under the cool breeze. Finally, at 1pm, the rain turned to drizzle, with the sound of the siren, golfers got into their buggies and set off to their respective holes. Unfortunately, the rain poured again few minutes later, so another siren was blown to signal suspension of the game. At the end, due to the unceasing rain and for safety reason, the organising committee decided to cancel the tournament with the sound of another siren. Many golfers reluctantly and with downcast mood returned to the club house. Although the tournament was cancelled, some golfers remained on course and brave through the puddles of water to continue their mission to finish off their friendly round of golf.
There were 108 guests who joined our evening banquet where we also held an auction for 3 pictures. We managed to raise a total of RM182,400 from the auction, golf fees, offerings, hole sponsors and advertisement in the event handbook. 106 underprivileged families under “Manna Food Bank” aid program and 22 indigenous pastors under “Yuan Han Journeying Together Seed Fund” were adopted. Organising committee chairwoman, Sis. Deborah Wong expressed gratitude to all participants and donors, despite having the game cancelled due to inclement weather, the spirit of caring and giving were not dampened. Lastly, the 10 prizes intended for winners were added to the original 20 lucky draws prizes. The evening concluded with 30 of our guests returned home happily with lucky items.
One of the Manna Food Bank's missions is to reach out and help the poor and needy regardless of race, ethnicity, or religion. In the past 6 years, even during the pandemic, HISTEAM had been carrying out this mission, there were over 10,000 individuals benefited from this program. Besides delivering the Manna Food Bags once every 2 months over a period of 1 year to the aid recipients, our 7979 trained volunteers also care for their spiritual and emotional needs. We know of many families, always looking forward to the bi-monthly visits of our volunteers who would bring along food bags that could put smiles on their faces and assure them that there is still love and care in this world.
If you would like to assist the underprivileged families, please contact the 7979 Food Bank Hotline at 019-792 7979.
