As part of its service to the community, St John Ambulance Malaysia (Perak) visited the Praise Emmanuel Children’s Home in Ipoh recently to give away toys and books. The items were donated by the public during a three-month campaign organised by St John Ambulance.
According to Sella Segar, supervisor of the welfare home, there are only ten boys and girls residing at the home and they are all orphans. She was appreciative of the efforts by the non-governmental organisation.
“By donating and visiting the home the children will feel happy and will not be left out from mainstream society,” said said Manin Singh, the State Superintendent of St John Ambulance Malaysia (Perak) who handed the presents.
Manin hoped that more donations, especially from NGOs and the public, will be forthcoming. Besides Praise Emmanuel Children’s Home the other welfare homes visited by Manin and his team were Good Shepherd Family Home and Bougainvillea Nursing Home.
