The biggest charity durian festival, JOM Durian VII will be held on June 22 to raise funds for the Children’s Wish Society of Malaysia.
From the best orchards in Perak and Johor, seven tonnes of durian will be brought in for the festival this year.

“Let’s all eat durian and raise funds to continue fulfilling the wishes of terminally-ill children.”
