As part of its CSR (corporate social responsibility) initiative, Perak Community Specialist Hospital celebrated Chinese New Year with inmates of Rumah Seri Bahagia, a senior citizens’ home, and kids from Salvation Army Children’s Home. The occasion had the tacit support of BAIDURI, the Perak Association of State Assemblymen’s Wives.
The guests of honour were Datin Seri DiRaja Saripah Zulkifli, wife of Perak Menteri Besar, Datin Lim Soo Lee, wife of Dato’ Dr Mah Hang Soon, and Datin Hew Chew Yoon, wife of Perak Gerakan chief, Dato’ Chang Ko Youn.
After an energetic lion dance, the 55 inmates of Rumah Seri Bahagia in Jalan Gopeng were handed goodie bags courtesy of BAIDURI, in addition to the Chinese New Year goodies and ang pow from the hospital. They were then treated to tea.
Later, at the Salvation Army Children’s Home in Jalan Kampar, 34 children were similarly entertained. Representatives from the hospital distributed gifts together with ang pow from BAIDURI.
It was a delightful afternoon that will remain in the memory of all who were present.
