Our Story

Ever since the Aceh Tsunami in 2004, Rishiwant Singh has delivered approximately US$100 million worth of aid in goods and in kind. He dedicated his life in service of mankind.

He set up Good Will Walk as a community effort to not only raise funds but awareness for the plight of the homeless in Malaysia and the Orang Asli people. The first walk was a one week, 300 kilometre walk from Singapore to Melaka. The aim was to ask people to pray for MH 370 and the people were genuinely touched. The walk was tough and painful but we learnt that a long distance walk has the ability to capture people’s attention.
