The Perak Turf Club held the annual presentation ceremony of giving donations to 52 charitable homes and organisations on November 13 at its premises.
These presentation of donations have been going on for many years under the able leadership of the Chairman, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri V. Jeyaratnam. Although he is now 90 years of age, he was present to meet all the recipients at this very meaningful event.
As for me, this is the first occasion I was present at this ceremony, representing the Perak Society for the Promotion of Mental Health in Ulu Kinta. Along with the others, I received a cheque for RM5000 for this Society from the Deputy Chairman, Dato’ Cheah Choon King.
It is amazing to note that leaders of community service like Tan Sri Dato’ Seri V. Jeyaratnam has a golden heart for the needy and handicapped people from all walks of life. This donation will go a long way to ease some of the urgent needs of these NGOs.
As the Hon. Secretary of the Perak Society for the Promotion of Mental Health, I know how our President, Dato’ Dr M. Majumder, Exco members and staff of this organisation are so dedicated in serving the 100 over female residents of this Centre in Ulu Kinta, Perak. These residents are there for rehabilitation treatment for mental disorders.
I hope more kind-hearted people out there will come forward and help these charitable organisations in and around the city of Ipoh.
Our sincere and deepest gratitude to the Perak Turf Club and its leaders for their valuable contributions to uplift the lives of these unfortunate people around us.
The founder of the Society Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Azlanii Dr M. Mahadevan too graced the occasion.
