Ipoh’s “Nightingales” Receive Awards


Ipoh’s “Nightingales” Receive Awards

Six prominent health-care societies in Ipoh were duly recognised for their services to the community. The Rotary Club of Greentown presented the societies with awards during a special ceremony held at Impiana Hotel, Ipoh on Monday, October 21.

One of the core values of Rotary Clubs worldwide, as highlighted by Sudhaharan, the club’s past president, is vocational service. Rotarians are required to share and contribute their skills and expertise, in whatever professions they are in, to meet the needs of the community.

A total of twelve awards, two to each organisation, were presented to caregivers of the Perak Palliative Care Society, National Stroke Association (M) Perak Branch, Perak Society for the Prevention of Mental Health, Dementia Society Perak, National Autism Society of Malaysia and Pusat Pemulihan Komuniti Buntong.

The awardees received certificates of appreciation and mementos for their dedication in caring for the sick, the infirmed and the terminally ill, including those who are recovering from life’s challenges. Members then gave these modern-day “Florence Nightingales” a standing ovation.
