Volunteers

 

Pioneering Volunteers

 
Family Planning was first introduced in the Federation of Malaya in 1935 by two early pioneers, Ms Margaret Sanger, the Founder of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), and Ms Edith Howe of the United Kingdom.
 
 
In 1938, the late Dr. A E Duraisamy, then a government obstetrician, convinced and mobilized a group of concerned women and two members of the medical fraternity, set up a Family Planning Committee to provide family planning advice to couples especially women of child-bearing age.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The late Mrs. Sophia Majeed, who later became the first Vice-President of the Federation of Family Planning Associations of Malaya, devoted a large part of her life as a volunteer traveling from village to village, educating village folks on importance of family planning/planned parenthood.
 
 
 
 
 
Volunteers of FRHAM and State MAs
 
All volunteers, both past and present, through their unselfish devotion, sacrifices, wisdom and professional expertise, have contributed in advocating, promoting and enhancing family planning, sexual and reproductive health and responsible parenthood as a way of life for all Malaysians.
 
Today, all our Officials, National Council members, Committee members, Honorary Officials, State Executive Committee members, as well as field educators, are volunteers.  They are involved in advocacy, networking, policy formulation, programme development and management, provision of services, and resource generation, including income generation.

The FRHAM Outstanding Volunteer Award was accorded as a special tribute to those who have made significant contributions to FRHAM and/or State MAs.  The recipients of the awards were:
