When we ar­rived at the vil­lage, the kids greeted us with smiles and placed hand­made head­bands, wo­ven to­gether with leaves, on our heads. We were here to wit­ness Laneige do­nate 30 units of point-ofuse com­mu­nity wa­ter fil­tra­tion sys­tems, giv­ing ac­cess to clean wa­ter to more than 880 res­i­dents across five vil­lages in­clud­ing the newly iden­ti­fied Kam­pung Ulu Geroh and Kam­pung Poh, Perak, as well as Kam­pung Padang, Pa­hang.

A deeper un­der­stand­ing

Thanks to Global Peace Foun­da­tion Malaysia, we got a chance to talk to the vil­lagers about their liv­ing con­di­tions. They shared their sto­ries about not get­ting clean wa­ter, es­pe­cially when it rains. Their wa­ter sup­ply trick­les pass the hills caus­ing it to turn murky – filled with sand, rocks and peb­bles, bac­te­ria and so on – when it reaches them.

Hav­ing a ball of a time

The day was just filled with laugh­ter and fun as we danced along­side the vil­lages dur­ing their per­for­mance. We were treated to a feast, too – made with love. The kids were over­joyed to have time for crafts while the ladies in the vil­lage were treated to an ex­clu­sive Laneige Beauty Makeover – re­iti­rat­ing the im­por­tance of clean drink­ing wa­ter for healthy skin!
