RM29,885 charity donation from ATP World Tour

Press Release

The Malaysian Open, Kuala Lumpur, an ATP World Tour 250 tennis tournament which celebrates its 5th anniversary in Malaysia this year, was among 14 successful recipients from around the world in the ATP ACES For Charity grant program for 2013, which awards grants of US$10,000 (RM29,885) each to charitable causes nominated by ATP World Tour players and tournaments.

Entering its third year, the ATP Aces for Charity programme supports a wide and varied range of causes globally, including childhood education in Serbia, tennis programs for disadvantaged youth in Colombia, Portugal and Tanzania, healthcare in Cincinnati, Eastbourne and the Ukraine, and social services for the elderly in Romania.

This was the third successive year that the local ATP World Tour 250 tournament had nominated 'Dignity for Children', a foundation that supports childhood education for the underprivileged in Malaysia, for the grant, and Tournament Director Nick Freyer of organisers IMG was touched that it was third time lucky and that the tournament was successful with their 2013 charity application.

"The Malaysian Open, Kuala Lumpur has always embraced any initiative to support the Malaysian community both on and off the tennis court, and now in our fifth tournament year, we are proud to announce the successful US$10,000 (RM29,885) grant from the ATP for the 'Dignity for Children' foundation. On behalf of the tournament, I would like to warmly thank the ATP for selecting Dignity for Children in Malaysia and I am sure the funds will go a long way to furthering the work of Rev. Elisha Satvinder and team.

Dignity for Children' operates one of the largest one-stop learning centres for urban poor children in Malaysia, helping the underprivileged acquire the academic and social personal skills crucial to their success in breaking the cycle of poverty. We do hope the additional funds will provide crucial aid for them to continue in their noble efforts," he said
