With September being the International Childhood Cancer Awareness month observed around the world, in support of children fighting the deadly disease, international star Wu Chun treated children from Children’s Cancer Foundation (YASKA) to Bake Culture and Energy Kitchen.
The importance of raising awareness on the fight against cancer has always been very close to Wu Chun’s heart as he lost his mother to cancer when he was very young. This marks a special event for Bake Culture as the donation to YASKA is their first charitable event for the newly established business chain from Taiwan.
According to Bake Culture’s management, “Helping out the needy and the less fortunate is an important cultural belief… YASKA deserves more appreciation and attention for what they are doing.”
Wu Chun presented the freshly baked pastries to YASKA, which was received by Tsara’ Nawwarah binti Abdullah Chen, a senior occupational therapist at the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital and Treasurer of YASKA on behalf of the patients.
The event also coincided with International Charity Day, which is observed annually on September 5 since its declaration by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012. September 5 was chosen in order to commemorate the anniversary of the passing away of Mother Teresa from Calcutta, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 “for work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress, which also constitute a threat to peace”.
“Mother Teresa once said that the hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread,” said Wu Chun, Managing Director of Bake Culture, referencing Mother Teresa’s quote made during an interview with TIME magazine in 1989.
“What we (Bake Culture) want to do is to give love through our breads to these cancer patients in the hope that they will find strength and happiness to continue their journey”, Wu Chun added.
At Energy Kitchen, Wu Chun mingled with the children from YASKA and also helped serve healthy meals. His advice to the children is to eat balanced meals that include vegetables. This is the third time that YASKNs children have visited Energy Kitchen.
