Dear KL Changemakers,

Happy New Year Protected content !

Here's hoping to start the new year with much excitement. This January 27th, we will be having a New Year Picnic in the Park with a group of young Afghan refugees.

These Afghan youngsters are regular hiking friends of our dear member, Akiko-san, who - along with several other volunteers - have been spending time with them every Sunday morning.

We have decided to give these young refugees a little special treat. Our New Year Picnic in the Park will carry the following itinerary:
