I would like to start a fundraising on behalf for my international friends. Unlike me who was privileged to grow up in a first world country with the government supporting its citizen, my friends in Malaysia is currently living on the edge. They are always worrying about their finance instead on focusing on their studies.
I visited them recently last year and went out to have lunch with them. I suggested some restaurant (which I find it cheap as comparing to my currency and country, its kinda expensive) and to my surprise, they rejected it as they could not afford it.
After I got back to my country, I saw one of their instagram stories that the laptop they use always break down or lag which resulted in their late submission for their projects.
As a friend, Its kinda saddening seeing that finances impeded their will to study. As such, I would like to fundraise and use the money to support them by getting them each a laptop.
