A reason to cheer for the residents of Love Foundation, Johor Bahru
Residents of Pertubuhan Kebajikan Insan Istimewa Johor Bahru (Love Foundation) were in a pleasant surprise when UMLand Seri Austin employees volunteered their time from their desk job to spread happiness and smiles on the faces of these mentally handicapped children and adults in conjunction with the upcoming Chinese New Year celebration.
The visit started with a guided tour by Ms. Cynthia, the Home person in-charge followed by gotong-royong around the home compound to further elevate the cleanliness, some employees helped the younger children to complete a colouring activity sheet while others had a fun time with balloons and music. At the same time, children from the Home also performed a dance where laughter and joys were all over the places.
Pertubuhan Kebajikan Insan Istimewa Johor Bahru was established since 2008. The Home houses 48 physical or mental handicapped children and adults, which include all races, religious and ages. Not only provides facilities, health and education, but to support services to children and adults with down syndrome, spastic, cerebral palsy, hyperactive and autism. Other than contributed cash of RM5,000 , we believe spending time with them able to make them know that they are being cared about is equally important.
The visit to the home marked the beginning of the many charity activities to be carried out by Seri Austin throughout 2017. We will continue to conduct a string of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities which aims to give back to the community and to bring joy to the lives of others. “We never get tired of seeing the joy on the faces of the recipients, especially the children. We want them to know that, they too are important members of the society”, says UMLand Seri Austin Chief Executive Officer, Mr KK Wong.
