KUALA LUMPUR: Some of the tennis players competing in the inaugural Malaysian Open women’s tennis tournament took time out off their busy schedule to visit the Kassim Chin Humanity Foundation yesterday.


Fifth seed Melinda Czink of Hun gary, wild card Alicia Molik of Aus tralia, Galina Voskoboeva of Kazakhstan, Chang Kai-chen of Taiwan, China’s Yan Zi and wild card Noppawan Lertcheewakarn of Thailand took part in the community project.


More than 60 children from the foundation welcomed the players with big smiles on their faces as they received food packages and red packets.

Czink said it was a great experience participating in the programme. “We lead a privileged life and it is great. So, it is necessary for us to give back to the kids who are not as privileged. It helps to put things into perspective for us and I hope we can try and motivate and encourage them through this visit today,” said the world No. 41 Czink. “It is important for them to know that they can achieve what they want through hard work and perseverance.”
