World Rare Disease Day Celebration
17 February 2019
Dataran DBKL, 1 Jalan Raja Laut, Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Hosted by Malaysian Rare Disorders Society
Our World Rare Disease Day Celebration 2019 event at Kuala Lumpur was a great success. Rare disease patients & families together with volunteers came early Sunday morning on 17 February 2019 with a purpose - to create awareness of rare disease and there being a rare disease community in Malaysia. We were flagged off by the Federal Territories Minister, Mr Khalid Samad, to walk and wheel down one of the major streets in Kuala Lumpur which was closed for the KL Car Free Morning. Besides that, about 800 members of the public successfully claimed their goodies bag at our booth by answering 3 simple questions regarding rare disease day. We hope that the event has been both meaningful & informative to the public.
