We lead a team to Athens in February in support of RCF. Our aim was to help our brothers and sisters who find themselves in an unenviable situation after being forced to leave their homelands. My wife Rumina headed the Aid distribution effort and made many contacts on the ground, visiting refugee camps to gather information on what was required. I headed the two-man dental team to provide dental care from the Khora dental unit. A very fulfilling and rewarding trip to say the least.

I was involved in the Build a Shelter project in Calais as part of the RCF. We helped build Shelters for vulnerable families living in horrendously tight accommodation within the jungle camp. We constructed and built 2 shelters in the camp, and it was really uplifting to see so many people trying to do their part to help these vulnerable people. The project really got me involved, and helped make some difference. I really believe in the RCF and hope to continue to help where I can today.
I was born and raised in Malaysia (that makes me the first Malaysian who volunteered for RCF, but I am sure I am not going to be the last 🙂 ). Similar to United Kingdom, issues on Refugee Crisis were well heard in Malaysia but there was no local platform for me to extend my hand to help those who are in need. Upon my relocation to Manchester in 2015, I got acquainted with RCF. I attended an introductory talk given by Ali Altaf, and since then I knew I had to volunteer with RCF. RCF is a well-organised organisation and is driven by many proactive team members. Many projects under RCF were successfully executed and so will future projects. I am proud to say I am a RCFian.
