History

Pusat Harian Kanak-kanak Spastic Ipoh (PHKKS) was formed in October 1988 (registration number 2967/88-Perak) with only  five disabled children. The prime aim of the centre is to provide free daycare services, education and training for spastic children. Four years later in 1992, the centre introduced and provided services to different categories such as down syndrome/mentally retarded children. The centre also started to house orphans, abandoned and poor children in the same year.

With initial contribution of RM1000.00 from the committee members, the centre then operated as daycare centre at the community hall in Kampong Pasir Putih Ipoh with a monthly rental of RM200.00. The hall was eventually donated to the centre (in 1992) by the late Yang Amat Berhormat Dato’ Seri Haji Wan Mohamed Bin Wan Teh. Yang Bahagia Datin Seri Hajjah Maria Binti Mahmud, wife of YAB then was appointed as life patron for the centre.

Mission

  • To help and assist the most disadvantaged (this includes spastic, down syndrome, mentally retarded) to become more capable by providing education and skill training.
  • To provide appropriate care, love, shelter and to bring safety to orphans, abandoned children and the homeless.
  • To serve poor and needy Muslims and neglected old folks. To provide assistance for food and clothing.

Today the centre has manpower of 12 taking care of 80 persons on its register. This includes down syndrome, mentally retarded children, spastic/disable children and youth. As a day care centre it helps the poor family members to continue working without having to worry about the care of their disabled children.

Apart from these categories, there are 30 poor and neglected old folks registered with the centre. Though they are not staying at the centre their welfare and basic needs are taken care by the centre. The committee members make a monthly visit to their respective homes to deliver kitchen provision to meet their basic needs. We provide financial and in-kind assistance to needy widows and single mothers. Also psychological support is provided through regular visits carried out by PHKKS staff.
