Rentwise has recently returned to the Pasar Borong Community Centre (PBCC) at Selayang to celebrate Children’s Day with its Myanmar refugee children. My first visit with a representative from Rentwise was brief but truly “unsettling” to say the least.
I was present this round to cover the event and played my part in fulfilling my company’s collaboration with Rentwise’s CSR program in helping these kids. What I provided was a simple portrait session for the children, which would result in A4 prints to be given to them after the shoot.
I never knew there is such a huge community of Myanmar refugees in Selayang alone! When I was sent by Rentwise to do a feature story on one of the learning centres in Selayang, I was both intrigued and excited at the prospect of meeting them in person.
Much have been heard and spoken about the refugee community at large but I've never been this up close and personal. So, this is definitely an eye-opening experience!
