The Perak Society for the Promotion of Mental Health in Ulu Kinta, Perak has been in existence for over 50 years and very soon, the 50th Anniversary Celebration will take place. The founder is Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Azlanii Dr M. Mahadevan who was the Director of Hospital Bahagia in Tanjung Rambutan, Perak. Since its inception in 1967, this Society has been a driving force in providing care and rehabilitation for the 100 women with psychosocial disabilities from all over the country with the hope for a better future and adaptability into society.
Although the Society has been functioning for over 50 years, it has no van of its own to transport the female residents of this centre to Hospital Bahagia, clinics and government hospitals for medical check-ups/treatment everyday. Currently the centre has a van. Unfortunately, it breaks down very frequently and the repair works are very high and taxing for the centre to maintain it.
This Society has been in the forefront in championing the rights of persons with mental illness. The current President is Dato’ Dr M. Majumder who has been at the helm for over 40 years. She and her dedicated nursing group, including the more than 30 staff at this centre, are doing a great service to the 100 over female residents with mental illness.
Quite recently, our Society was chosen as one of the best NGOs in Perak by the ROS Perak. The Hon. Secretary was invited to give a talk about this Centre to an audience of 200 participants from the various NGOs in Perak. The Director General of ROS from Kuala Lumpur and other dignitaries, including the ROS of Perak and staff, were present
It is time to seek for a generous donor to donate a 12-seater van for the centre and it will be a timely affair as the centre will be celebrating its 50th anniversary soon.
The patron of the Society is our beloved DYMM Sultan of Perak who is always supportive towards this organisation. He is a very caring ruler and has a golden heart for everyone.
I am sure a generous and kind donor will come forward to donate a 12-seater van to save people’s lives. The donor’s name or company’s name will be inscribed on the van.
It is our vision to empower the 100-over female residents with occupational and social skills in order to improve the quality of their lives. “Our attitude decides the altitude of our achievements.” Kindly help us in our quest to get a 12-seater van for the centre as soon as possible for which we will be always grateful.
