Bambusa Foundation is a non-profitable organization based in Malaysia that advocates Forest & Wildlife Conservation. Apart from Conservation work, we are also involved in Humanitarian activities. Currently, we are engage with the Aborigines (Orang Asli) community from Lubuk Chupak Village, a sub-district of Lenggong, in the state of Perak, Malaysia. There are three tribes in the village that are Temiar, Lanoh, and Jahai. They are living together in one shared environment. The total population of this community is 32 families comprising of 117 members. Although fundamentally, it is every human right to have basic utilities, unfortunately in this village, there is no electricity and their water resources are in a deprived state.
Establishing Utility Infrastructure for the Orang Asli Community in Lubuk Chupak Village
Days to go
Campaign End Method
The Orang Asli (Aborigines) community have been living in impaired houses with no electricity and clean water. The existing generator (EGY 1200) can only afford electricity for the fan and light to a single home with a limited timeframe between 7 pm to 11 pm.
It is not sufficient to supply electricity for 24 houses in the village. Apart from that, there is no proper access to water supply in this village. They are highly dependent on the murky river water which is about 4 km from the settlement.
Absence of Electricity
- Living in the dark every night
- No study time for children during the night
- No access to the internet, technology and tools
- Food Source can’t be store for more than a day
Absence of Access to Clean Water
- No clean drinking water
- No proper sanitation and personal hygiene
- Prone to water-borne illnesses
The Big Goal
Based on the situation they are facing, there is an urgent need to assist this community. We want to provide a 160 Kva generator and the necessary infrastructure that supplies the electricity throughout the 24 houses in the village and clean water by re-establishing new piping along with a water filtration system.
So we aim to raise funds for this community and 100% of the funds raised will be channeled to establish the utility infrastructure which is electricity and clean water for this community in Lubuk Chupak Village, sub-district of Lenggong, in the state of Perak, Malaysia.
Our target is to raise RM 150,000 (USD 37,000) to enable us procure the above equipments.
You can support our fellow aborigine brothers and sisters by kindly donating to our appeal or by sharing our plea with the public. Together with us, you can do your part to improve the livelihood of the community.
Thank you for your kindness.
