Malaysian Heroes in Facebook

Today I would like to highlight a few Facebook pages in my blog. These pages were started by concerned Malaysians. They can be individuals, a group of friends or even NGO.

I consider these pages as a MUST FOLLOW for the betterment of the Malaysian public.

I do not admire certain pages that used to be very popular especially among the Malaysian Indian FB users. There were many pages and bloggers who used to run their show under the pretext of educating the Indian community. Although they started out well, they end up deviating from the original motive.

Their pages became a platform for rampant cyber bullying among the Malaysian Indian community. In a Malaysian layman terms, it functioned more as a portal for 'kutuking' among the Indians rather than providing solutions to the existing issues faced by the community.

These pages come and go. Many such pages have been removed. To me, they are just passing clouds.
The ones which I am going to highlight are the real unsung Malaysian heroes of Facebook. Why? Because they are genuine with their intention to help the mass. They are a reflection of the true Malaysian spirit.

Having said this, I can boldly say that these pages are much more important than my own blog. It is alright to ignore my blog but never ignore the following pages.

Bersih, an election watchdog dedicated in ensuring a clean and fair electoral system in Malaysia. No fear or favor.

The Women's Aid Organisation (WAO) was founded in September 1982 to promote and create respect, protection and fulfillment of equal rights for women. To work towards the elimination of discrimination against women, and to bring about equality between women and men.

Malaysia’s definitive bank comparison page that exists for the sole purpose of helping all Malaysians make quick, well-informed decisions for all banking products and services currently in the market. It is absolutely free.
Malaysia Independent Animal Rescue (MIAR) is a non-profit organization that helps strays in need. It was founded by Ms.Puspa Rani who gave up her career as a chartered accountant.

Kita Kawan Mah is a page initiated by a few concerned citizens who wants to bring the various Malaysian ethnics together as people of 1 country. Here is their motto "We are just ordinary rakyat of Malaysia. We love our rojak culture. We are awesome because we are different. We love our muhibah spirit. We are all kawan."
Started by some concerned people of Petaling Jaya, the PJ Community Alert is dedicated to alert fellow Malaysians on crime with hopes that Malaysia will be a safe nation.

I highlighted just 6 of such pages. There are many more out there. Seek them and give them your support.
