As such Rhymba Hills®, has chosen to donate parts of its earnings to ‘Malaysia National Movement Disorders Society (MNMDS).
Why MNMDS and not other organizations? Many take our ability to move physically forgranted until we are stricken by illnesses which inhibits our movement. Illnesses like Parkinson’s, Dystonia and Ataxia robs the sufferer of a normal life and such illnesses lack publicity of other terminal illnesses like cancer and heart attack.
The founder’s Mother, was stricken with Parkinson’s since 2007 and she witnessed her Mother slowly wasting her life away. From a cheerful lady, her Mother soon had mask-like expression and began to lose certain functions of her body due to the illness. After battling Parkisons’ for almost 10 years, she was relieved of her pain and suffering on April 10, 2015. To read a tribute note, please click here.
As such, Ciinndey pledged to raise awareness about the debilitating effects of this monstrous disease by donating part of the earnings to MNMDS.
Update: February 22, 2014
MNMDS had its Extraordinary General Meeting today, and with a heavy heart, was concluded that the society will be delisted with effect from today. Part of the reasons for delisting include lack of funding and manpower.
As such, as part of our CSR pledge, we will continue to look for deserving local non-governmental organisation to support.
