On behalf of Connect Indonesia, The Charity team
We felt truly honoured that Ibu Sri Owen, the legendary cook and food writer has opted for Connect Indonesia, The Charity as one of her chosen charities where she raised fund for, to mark her 80th birthday anniversary. The celebration took place at the Indonesian Embassy, attended by her close friends and family, and attended by his Excellency the Indonesian Ambassador to the UK, Mr Mohammad Hamzah Thayeb & Mrs Thayeb.
The evening went extremely well, with plenty of amazing food and drink to go around, some of which cooked by ibu Sri herself.
We are truly grateful to Ibu Sri who have managed to raise a good amount of fund for Connect Indonesia, The Charity and this fund will be used towards developing the “Seeing is Believing” project, where we distribute reading glasses to senior craft workers in Indonesia.
Connect Indonesia has never received such support before, and we feel extremely positive that our project will benefit many more senior craft workers in the country in the future.
Thank you all who have donated to Connect Indonesia, The Charity. Thank you ibu Sri for your amazing support. Long live our favourite cook and food writer.
