“I want to help local communities who have difficulties coping with life,” said dental surgeon, Dr Sumeeta Dhanoa during Rotary Club of Greentown’s 25th President Installation Ceremony at Syeun Hotel, Ipoh on Saturday, July 14.
Her team has outlined 11 projects for implementation. “Endeavours”, as she prefers to call them, have been planned for 2018 and 2019.
Some notable plans are a mental health seminar on children and adolescents scheduled for on November 12 and Perak FM talk shows on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month.
Sumeeta plans to introduce a dementia therapeutic garden, in collaboration with Dementia Society Perak.
Guest of honour, Dato’ Seri Mohammad Nizar bin Jamaluddin, Executive Councillor for Infrastructure and Corridor Development expressed his wishes for more people to become members of Rotary Club Malaysia.
“I hope they’ll join a club and use it as a platform to provide social services to local communities,” he added.
As an elected people’s representative, he will do his part to assist in the club’s initiatives.
