Organising Chairman Dr. Sean Wong said, “My inspiration arises from the various challenges I faced in my life – my late father’s bankruptcy, the resilience learned during my family’s years of poverty, and the compassion gained from caring for my late sister who suffered from severe schizophrenia and depression. In 2015, my wife and I tragically lost our second son, and both of us faced our darkest days. Despite these adversities, we discovered purpose by dedicating ourselves to charitable mission. Blessed with many supportive friends in Sabah, I aspire to contribute to the community here by supporting meaningful charitable causes.”
