Who are we
Yayasan Pemulihan Orang-orang Cacat Kelantan is a charitable foundation established to alleviate the plight of the people with disabilities and to give them a meaningful life. The new building of the Yayasan, which was funded by donation was officially opened in year 2000. The Yayasan is the brainchild of the chairman of the board of trustees; the result of his compassion for the local disabled community.
There are over over thousands of disabled persons registered with the Department of Social Welfare in Kelantan. However it is believed that there are many who has not yet registered. Thus Yayasan aims to reach all disabled persons in Kelantan.
The Yayasan helps the disabled through various activities such as rehabilitation, therapy, home visits to the disabled person’s house, and social and sporting activities. In fact in three years the Yayasan has been able to assist in the establishment of numerous centres to allow greater access to rehabilitation programmes for people in remote areas in the State.
The Yayasan hopes to do more but as their services are free of charge, they are faced with financial constraints. Thus contribution from the public is a necessity to sustain their existence.
