The Perak Society for the Promotion of Mental Health organised a charity food fair on the morning of Sunday, October 9 at the St John Ambulance Hall, Ipoh. Its objective was to raise funds for the society’s day-care centre located in Ulu Kinta.
There were more than 20 stalls selling food, juices, books, fruits and handicrafts. Popular food trucks like Ali YehYeh and Ipoh Padang Cendol were there to add colour to the fair.
“As a non-profit organisation, we’ve been committed to caring and transforming the lives of women with psychosocial disabilities for over four decades,” said K. Letchimanan, honorary secretary of Perak Society for the Promotion of Mental Health.
“We hope Ipohites are aware of our efforts in organising rehabilitation programmes and activities for over 100 residents,” he added.
President of the society, Dato’ Dr Majumder who has been leading the society for over three decades with exemplary dedication was also present.
“We painted these money boxes ourselves. I am thrilled to see people buying them. It’s like they are taking home a piece of us,” said Alice who was in charge of the handicraft booth.
