亚庇国会议员邱庆洲的特别助理李志强是该义卖会的主持,他说,该场义卖活动是协助沙巴爱滋病援助服务协会(KASIH)筹款。  该协会需要财政上援助,以维持其运作,例如医药费,举办讲座会以提醒人们对该致命病毒的了解。 此外该协会的会员设立了住宿,让从偏远甘榜前来亚庇医院求医的甘榜人居住。  有些年幼的爱滋病患者被安置在该处暂时居住,并且还免费提供食物和药品给他们。   该协会所需的费用很大,而且面对繁重的工作,因此他们必须要不断的寻求善心人士给于财政上的赞助,让该协会能够继续的运作以帮助有需要的爱滋病人。

李志强说,亚庇国会议员办事处决定为他们筹款,并在新年夜市安排义卖摊位。 出售的饮食品和干粮都是来自善心人士所捐赠,其中有鸡蛋,面包,蔬果,饮料等等。 他希望能够有更多不同的物品在当晚摆卖,如果有任何善心人士想帮助该协会的病人。 请联络亚庇国会议员办事处088-254987或016-8120888(Andrew)。  农历新年是欢庆的节日,同时也是做善事的好日子,希望在这佳节期间大家一起来做善事,帮助有需要的人。
