Every year, the Lioness Club of Ipoh commits itself to spreading the festive cheer by visiting different charitable homes. Just before Chinese New Year, members of the Lioness Club of Ipoh, led by President Sakuntala Rajadurai, visited Persatuan Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Setia, a home for disabled children in Silibin, Ipoh.
This centre takes care of abused, neglected, abandoned, orphaned and at-risk children to ensure that they lead a happier and healthier life. The centre’s 39 residents are taught educational and technical skills to help them fit into society.
The club presented mandarin oranges as symbols of good fortune to the home. The members prepared a scrumptious lunch for the children. It was a heart-warming experience to see how joyful the children were as they tucked into sausages, nuggets, biscuits, ice-cream, cakes and chocolates prepared specially for them.
Present at the event were Charter President Lioness, Juliet Putra, Vice President Lioness, Datin Thavamani Thambipillay, Lioness Annie Arul, Lioness Sheila Hari and Lion Liaison Lion Ho Choon Seng.
Sakuntala hoped more people would come forward to cheer up the children and donate in kind to help them in their hour of need.
