The Perak National Registration Department called on Persatuan Pemulihan Sultan Azlan Shah in Bercham one recent Saturday. The rehab centre was the recipient of the department’s Tunas Bakti Orang Kurang Upaya programme, a community social responsibility initiative.
The primary objective of the outreach programme was to assist parents to obtain proper identification papers for their handicapped children. It was also in line with the national policy of bringing public services to the rakyat.
Working closely with the Social Welfare Department, the department’s mobile unit, MyMobile, was used to the fullest.
Persatuan Pemulihan Sultan Azlan Shah was selected to be the host, as the department wanted to create greater public awareness of the services rendered by the Sultan Azlan Shah Foundation. Rehabilitation for children, as well as adults with special needs, is provided free of charge, regardless of race and creed.
Chairman of Persatuan Pemulihan Sultan Azlan Shah, Tan Sri V. Jeyaratnam and Perak National Registration Department Deputy Director, Puan Hajjah Fatimah Hashim gave away medals to winners of the various competitions.
Six kids were presented with achievers’ awards for their progress since undergoing treatment at the centre.
