Aid to Karnai Illam, home for destitude girls.
Inner Wheel Club of Subang Selangor
25 August 2020
Inner Wheel Club of Subang Selangor has been supporting Karunai Illam, a charity organisation under the management of Persatuan Saiva Siddantha Malaysia. This organisation provides aid to destitude children from broken homes, orphans, neglected and abused. The home provides residential care, education, counselling and guidance to empower these children to realise their worth and be contributing citizens.
Karunai Illam (Gracious Home) is a home for girls established in 2001 in Taman Ehsan in Kepong, Kuala Lumpur.
In the past, we have held an eco-green programme at this home where we set up a fertigation garden to grow vegetables. We also joined them to celebrate Ponggal, the harvest festival. We have periodically provided clothing and food items as and when they had an urgent need.
Recently with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we went ahead and produced washable cotton 3-ply masks. Our members, Jayanthi Somasundram and Dhevi Muthupalaniappan visited the home and distributed these masks to the children and staff. They also brought items for tea and spent the evening with them.
