Freedom Fund 2.0 update

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

Engage is pleased to announce that Freedom Fund 2.0 is well on its way to achieve its target of raising RM292,000 to help Clare Rewcastle Brown, Gerakbudaya and Vinlin Press.

As of 14 May, five days after the fund was launched, we raised RM151,462. Added to the RM128,000 already raised by Clare in the UK earlier, the total raised stands at RM279,462 or 66.5% of the total needed. We still need another RM140,538 to cover the RM420,000 amount awarded to the sultanah of Terengganu.

What is heartening is that 585 individuals responded to our “RM10 to say thank you” campaign, with 407 people making contributions of RM50 or less. It shows that no amount is too small and everyone can do their part to show their solidarity with Clare and the two local businesses.

Many in Malaysia from all walks of life are grateful to Clare, a British journalist based in the UK who has shown an unwavering commitment to exposing corruption in Malaysia long before the 1MDB scandal erupted.

Let us press on to reach our target by informing our friends and family that we can give “RM10 to say thank you” to Clare. She has done so much for our country, don’t let her carry this financial burden alone.

There are three ways you can contribute.

Bank: Public Bank Berhad
Number: 323 866 9514
Reference: Clare

(2) Donate via credit/debit cards, Grab and FPX through the Sokong platform by Malaysiakini here
