As part of their celebrations, Ayur Centre Ipoh held a Medical Camp at the children’s home of Pertubuhan Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Setia, in Silibin. The home has 44 children who are mentally and physically challenged.
Ayur Centre physicians Dr. Shiva Prasad and Dr. Mahapatra were on hand to conduct tests on the children to select two children whose condition had the potential to be improved and helped through Ayurvedic treatments. The children would subsequently be treated at their Ayur Centre in Tambun for 2-3 weeks.
In conjunction with the anniversary celebration, women’s organisation Soroptimist International adopted the camp as a service project by providing lunch and entertainment for the children of the home. The entertainment was in the form of clown Au Yang whose antics were adored by the children.
Puan Sri Siew Yong Gnanalingam, Executive Director of Ayur Centre Sdn Bhd and Soroptomist International National Rep of Malaysia, who read the welcoming address, thanked DYTM Raja Puan Besar Perak, Tuanku Zara Salim for graciously lending her presence and making the morning a memorable event. Also present was YAB Datin Seri Saripah Zulkifli, SI Ipoh President Jeyamalar Jeyaratnam and Mr Raymond Ong Kah Ghee, the vice chairman of the home.
Ayur Centre Sdn Bhd also has branches in PJ, Seremban, Butterworth and Johor Baharu.
