On the 16th October 2021 President Santhi Sundara and Past President Lucy Barrock of the Inner Wheel Club of Butterworth (IWC BW) distributed 15 goody bags, brand-new traditional attire and other items to 15 children of Pusat Jagaan Sinar Ceria, Taman Sejahtera, Alma, Bukit Mertajam. The person in charge of this Centre, Ms Anita was on hand to receive the donations together with some of the children.

 

The goody bags consisted of toys, packets of milk and Milo, cookies, traditional bites (palaharam), chocolates, story and colouring books, stationery, face masks, hand sanitiser, and money packets (ang pow) of RM10 each.

 

All the Deepavali clothes were sponsored by Mr Kalidas Komarawelo of Mata Amritanandamayi Georgetown Centre Penang, while IWC BW Members donated in cash and kind towards the project and picked up the tab for the rest of the items. The children and staff were also treated to lunch by the Club two days later on Monday, 18th October 2021.

 

It was a satisfying undertaking by the Club for a worthy cause, which brought festive cheer to the children at the Centre for Deepavali, the Festival of Lights. The spirit of giving is what keeps many such child care centres alive and functioning.
