Showcasing para swimmers of various disabilities from all over the world, the Kuching 2019 World Para Swimming Championships (WPSC) will be held in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia from 29 July to 4 August 2019.
A special program called “Tambah Emas” – a crowdfunding project that will be launched by the Deputy Prime Minister, YAB Dato Seri Dr Wan Azizah Binti Wan Ismail accompanied by the Youth & Sports Minister, YB Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman. The primary objective of this project is to appeal to the Malaysian Society to support our para sports movement – especially our para athletes who are training to participate in the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics. We won 3 golds in Rio and now we want to increase the gold count to another level. This initiative is being taken by the Paralympic Council of Malaysia to ensure that our para athletes’ development programs are executed as planned and we would like to reduce our dependency on government funds to support our plans – especially in the current times of austerity drive.
