Pengumuman Khas

This is a community service announcement. Nilai University College (Nilai UC), where my buddy Mr Anfield Devotee is attached with, will organise a seminar on Autism and are hoping to reach to as many potential participants as possible. My hope is that this announcement will reach the right people, i.e those who are either direct or indirectly involved with Autism will come across this piece and keen to take part in the seminar. With all the names lined up as speakers, I’m sure we will learn a lot about this brain disorder syndrome.

The least we could do is to spread the word around. I’m positive by doing so we are actually contributing something to the society, via a very minimal effort.

And with this little effort, who knows, you could make a huge of a change for the better and ultimately improve a soul’s life.

For those interested, check out the details of the seminar below. Thank you.
