On Friday, 5th of August, Paint the World Concert 2.0 was successfully held at the Civic Centre in Miri.

The charity concert was organised by Paint the World Malaysia, in collaboration with the Sarawak Ministry of Youth, Sports and Solidarity. The half-day event was officiated by Yang Berhormat Datuk Haji Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, the Assistant Minister of Housing, Assistant Minister of Youth and Sports, and attended by youths and communities from all around Miri.

Besides having YB Datuk Haji Abdul Karim as the honourable guest, the special invited guests consisted of the children from MRCS Sunflower Centre, Association of Parents with Special Children (PIBAKIS) Miri, National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) Miri, and Hamidah Yakup Orphanage Complex (PERYATIM) Miri.

The first Paint the World Concert was held the previous year and saw the participation of 15 international students from the United World Colleges (UWC) who came from diverse nationalities.

This year, 6 international students, representing the AIESEC, which is also known as the Association Internationale des Étudiants en Sciences Économiques et Commerciales helped bring success and added more colours to the concert.

Chung Hua Colour Guard kicked off the concert with their splendid performance that amazed the audience, as well as the guests, followed by another 8 performances by the students from schools and higher learning institutions (IPT) in Miri.

The best part of the concert was when the honourable guest, YB Karim went up to the stage for a Poco-Poco Dance and mingled with the kids with special needs and the “Painters of the World”.

As one of the objectives of the concert is to celebrate the kids with special needs and make them feel loved, the performers invited them upstage to sing and dance together and walk on the runway during a fashion show.

At the end of the concert, Clinton Chua, who stepped down as the President of PTW Miri, challenged the youth of today to love more, to make a change, and to give back more to the community, especially to the underprivileged and the special ones.

As what the PTW motto says, “If not me, who? If not now, when?”
