SEVERAL players competing in the Malaysia International Open took time off from their busy schedule to visit the Kassim Chin Humanity Foundation in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Hungary's fifth seed Melinda Czink, Alicia Molik of Australia, Kazakhstan's Galina Voskoboeva, Taiwan's Chang Kai Chen, China's Yan Zi and Thailand's Noppawan Lertcheewakarn were welcomed by 60 under-privileged children together with founder Kassim Chin.

 

The players handed out food packages and 'ang pows' to the children which brought on the smiles.

 

"We players lead a privileged life and it is great and necessary for us to give back to the kids who are not as privileged," said Melinda. "It helps put things into perspective and I hope we can try and motivate and encourage them through this visit today (yesterday).

 

"It is important for them to know that they can achieve what they want through hard work and perseverance."

 

Interacting with the kids, Alicia added: "These small gifts are great. It obviously means a lot to them and it is great to see the smiles on their faces. If I would bring a gift from Australia, I would bring vegemite which is something traditional to Australia".
