On 27th November 2020, DUREF celebrated 10 children undergoing cancer treatment around Kuala Lumpur. This program was conducted in collaboration with the NGO Childhood Cancer Parents Support Group (KIDS).

The recipients were screened by the NGO KIDS where target assistance was given to families with B40 income around Kuala Lumpur. Planning and Preparation was made two weeks before the program was carried out so that this surprise could bring joy to the children fighting cancer.

The program started as early as 10.00 am (Malaysia Time) where all DUREF Committees gathered for safety & SOP briefing so that everyone was aware and careful to run the charity program. Then the committees were asked to go to the cancer children’s home to deliver some token, cakes, and special DDK merchandises to recipients.
