Back To School Project
Inner Wheel Club of Subang Selangor
25 February 2021
Schools nationwide finally reopens in the first week of March 2021 after the Restricted Movement Control Order (RMCO), Conditional MCO and followed by MCO. The worries of parents rushing to get them ready is a financial burden for the lower income group. And sure enough, our club received a plea for assistance from the families at Mentari Flats in Petaling Jaya.
As it would cost a fair bit to assist 30 school going children, we decided to reach out to kind benefactors and IPP Shanty Chandran soon found a very willing person Mr. Brahmal Vasudevan who immediately came to assist. Our deepest appreciation to Mr. Brahmal for his very generous gesture.
Shanty arranged for vouchers from Mydin store for the parents to get new shoes, uniform and bags for their children. These vouchers were handed over to our contact at the Mentari flats to distribute accordingly as it was still MCO.
The children are now ready for their first day at school.
