Who are we

The society was officially registered with 11 core members. The number of core members has since increased to more than 50.

Our services

The society’s main project is the ‘Day Centre for Special Children’. Together the 11 members combined their resources to set up the Day Centre by renting the lower part of a two storey kampung (village) house. (The owner of the house stayed with his family on the upper storey). It was very small, only able to accommodate about 20 people.

Two years later, the local government donated a single storey bungalow at the current address. This enabled the Society to increase it’s dependents to the current total of 15. With additional dependents, a new problem arise. There is not enough funds to cater to the expenses of the Day Centre. Hence the Committee members had to start charging the dependents RM50 each per month for van fare (the Centre provides transportation to and from the children’s house) and meals (previously the services were free). This is to ensure the prolonged sustainability of the Day Centre. Nevertheless, there are instances where dependents are not able to afford even the monthly charge, and for such cases, the centre continues to accept and help the said dependents. The Society hopes that with enough funding and help from the Public, they will not have to charge these dependents in the future.

The Day Centre only caters to children aged 18 years and below, who are disabled.

Our objectives

  • To fulfil the wish of parents of mentally disabled children of this area for a Day Care Centre
  • To train and teach disabled children to remedy their situation and to be independent without having to separate them from their family.
  • To give counselling and to create awareness among the public of the importance of disabled children to grow up in a loving environment where parents, the public and also the members of this Society play a role in helping the children to carry out their rehabilitation training.
  • Train mentally disabled/spastic children to manage themselves through various activities including physical rehabilitation exercise, and improvement of work method training, with the aid of family and society.
  • Overcome the problem of family abandonment towards their children when the children is sent to handicapped institutions.
