IAPWA (International Aid for the Protection & Welfare of Animals) is a UK NGO founded in 2009 to provide veterinary care and support to thousands of dogs and cats every year. IAPWA also believes in education and working with the governing authorities to achieve long term change and better protection for the animals. IAPWA Penang is one of the many projects worldwide in collaboration with government authorities. A Memorandum of Understanding was secured in Aug 2017 with the local council of Penang Island (MBPP) to trap, neuter and release stray dogs as a more humane and effective way to reduce stray population. To achieve this mission in Penang, we need your support to educate and promote TNR effort, to heed our calls for volunteers and donate to our cause for the innocent strays and abandoned animals.

Penang Monthly Updates

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 5:23 am


Penang Monthly, the voice of Penang.

Penang Monthly endeavours to be the mouthpiece of Penang and an inspiring read for the curious Malaysian. A publication of Penang Institute, it aims to supply Penangites with information about significant issues in order to promote public participation, thus encouraging discussions about the various aspects of Penang’s fates and fortunes.

At the same time, we seek to profile Penang personalities who have contributed, sometimes in very unassuming but critical ways, to the reputation and wellbeing of the state, and to put the spotlight on ordinary Penangites who otherwise go unnoticed, but who nevertheless define the culture of the state in essential ways.

As Penang evolves, we would like to highlight its importance as a generator of culture, education, industry and cosmopolitan values – not just in our features, but also in in-depth analyses of the culture economy. We aspire to emphasise present trends in the arts, industry, politics and economics which affect the immediate future of the state and country.

On top of that, apart from our monthly socio-economic data section, we also provide a quarterly economic review, offering reliable socioeconomic data for the benefit of decision makers in government and the private sector.

An all-round read indeed.

Ooi Kee Beng, Editor
Julia Tan, Deputy Editor
Tim-Niklas Schoepp, Economics Editor
Nic Lee, Art Director
