Visit to Pusat Jagaan 1Malaysia
Inner Wheel Club of Ipoh East
7 November 2020
On 7 November 2020, President Jaya Ranjitham, OC Sarala Nair and other members of the Inner Wheel Club of Ipoh East visited the Pusat Jagaan 1Malaysia located in the east of Ipoh city. It is a non-governmental welfare home, currently having 36 orphans including infants, toddlers and school-going children up to the age of 18.
Organising Chairman Sarala Nair and club members raised RM3,000 within a very short span of time to donate to this home, held in conjunction with District Chairman Shanti Menon’s official visit to the club.
We were welcomed by very eager and cheerful toddlers at the entrance. All of us were smitten by the innocent faces and forgot the reason for being there in the first place. The children were all clamouring for our attention and we had our willing hands full right away.
A;though we had wanted to spend more time with the sweet children, in adhering to the COVID-19 government restrictions advice, DC Shanti Menon, DEC Parimala and President Jaya quickly handed over the cheque to the Chairman of this foundation and took leave after taking some photographs with the lovely children.
