On the 19th of April 2015, the Aveda Walk For Water raised funds for the Orang Seletar, also called the Malaysian “Sea Gypsies”. They are people who spend their entire lives at sea. However due to water pollution they are forced back to land. They live in Kampung Pasir Putih, Pasir Gudang. Many villagers earn around 500 ringgit a month and their main economic activity is fishing. Even though the Orang Seletar are now living on land they have a natural instinct to go to sea and catch fish. 

We are now trying to build a water filtration system to give them safe drinking water. Aveda and Eco-knights have worked together to create this. The walk was 3km long at the 1Utama Park. There were many stalls set up throughout the walk with activities such as painting and water charades. There was even a zumba stall! 

We were not alone on the walk; there were joggers and people walking their dogs too! The Year 6 students of Cempaka gave tips about saving water to the crowd and quizzed them about their knowledge after the walk. Finally, there was a traditional flute performance featuring soothing Peruvian music.

We had a very enjoyable time and were very happy to contribute to making the lives of the Orang Seletar a little better.

  1. Actually, recently there have been quite a number of climate marches. Me and my essay experts colleagues attended one in our Washington. Anthropogenic climate change is real and has visible and severe effects, particularly on indigenous and marginalized people. People do not realize that the effects of climate change intersect with race, class, age, geography; those who are marginalized in society now will be the ones to suffer the most. We need to take serious and aggressive actions to stop climate change, now. I honestly can't think of a better reason for revolution.
