In 1991, a few Langkawi ladies got together and held their first Charity Dinner, the proceeds of which went to Sekolah Kebangsaan Kuah. Following its success, the ladies decided to form a social and registered charitable club—Kelab Puteri Langkawi (NGO). Today Kelab Amal Wanita Langkawi - The ladies Charity Club Langkawi - has a membership of around 20 ladies which includes many local business women from across the globe who are either just passing through or have decided to make Langkawi their long term home.
The clubs’ aim, as always, has been to provide charitable and social assistance for the benefit of all Langkawi residents and visitors - our main beneficiary being the Langkawi General Hospital.
Korshida Begum has served two terms as Club President and is responsible for spurring her members on to come up with ideas for Charitable Events and forming the work committees to carry these ideas through.
Shida also encourages time for social lunches, dinners and outings which have included Mothers Days Dinners, tea with Dr Ghani with a guided tour through his "Herb Garden". Cooking demonstrations with the chefs at The Sheraton Beach Resort and Kampung Tok Senik, more of these successful events are planned.
We meet on the first Tuesday of the month at 10.3Oam.
(subject to change so please phone first for confirmation)
New members and visitors are always welcome.
