As a club that has service as one of its core values, the importance of checking in with people to whom help had been extended in the past becomes the norm, especially with the ones that take responsibility for social injustices. Pusat Jagaan Rumah Perlindungan Social Klang is definitely one of them.

 

IWCSS’s association with them began during IPP Indira Menon’s term and on 2nd August, President Tara Menon and a group of members decided to make a visit and reconnect. This home functions as a shelter for women and children who are seeking a safe space from domestic abuse and difficult family circumstances.

 

The women from YWCA oversee its administration and Datin Sheila Jayakumar the person in charge arranged a physical meet between IWCSS’ President Tara, Secretary Shanthy, committee member Dhevi, member Krishnaveni, and National Representative of Districts 330 and 331 Parimala with the YWCA group.

 

Club members ensured that they did not go empty handed. They took along little backpacks and stationery for the children, and groceries for the shelter.

 

It was a morning well spent meeting up with another group of like-minded women and sharing thoughts on the issues that women in society face. Members finished the visit with ‘comfort food’ at Muthu’s.
