The First Executive Committee
As a result of our Founder’s stature and network, he was able to assemble an impressive and highly committed group of like-minded individuals who felt equally passionately about championing the cause of leprosy patients and their communities when he founded the Malaysian Leprosy Relief Association in 1959.
It was the efforts of the First Executive Committee that sowed the seeds of MaLRA’s strong foundations, and crafted a reputational legacy that has endured for more than six decades.
The first Executive Committee included such illustrious individuals such as:
Tan Sri Mohammed Tahir T. H. Tan
Datin Hajjah Halimahton binti Abdul Majid
Mr. Khoo Chong Kok
Mr. Lim Hee Hong
Mr. A. B. Ding
Dr. Peter Mayo
Mr Y.T. Lee
