KUALA LUMPUR: Silat Cekak Ustaz Hanafi Malaysia raised RM3,050 in 30 minutes yesterday for the NSTP Fund for Gaza.
The money was collected from 150 members attending the association's instructors' day annual celebration in Ampang Jaya yesterday. A donation box labelled "Tabung Palestine" was passed around to members before a presentation.
The presentation of a mock cheque was made at the NSTP office later in the afternoon. The association's acting president Md Nasir Md Arshad said: "We teach our members to be caring and not to forget their responsibilities to those outside the association.
"We don't believe in fighting. We teach self-defence to avoid fighting. Fighting is not the way to settle issues."
