This year, PPB organized separate Chinese New Year (“CNY”) lunches for two old folks homes, Shan Ai Handicapped Welfare Home and Rumah Victory Old Folks Home. PPB contributed electrical appliances much needed by Shan Ai; and two units of desktop computers to Rumah Victory, in addition to groceries and customized t-shirts. The residents were also treated to sumptuous buffet lunches. At Rumah Victory, most of the residents enjoy karaoke, and were entertained with a medley of CNY songs and golden oldies by Mrs Malaysia Chinatown 2014, Ms Jericash Chan.
Cheras LeisureMall (CLM) launched its inaugural “Give. Share. Love” campaign on 4 February 2020 to assist the needy through two charity programmes, viz “Food for Love” and “Eye Care for You”.
Under the “Food for Love” programme, a special food collection box was placed in the mall to collect non-perishable food items from the mall’s tenants and members of the public. Food items collected were then channelled to the selected charity homes on a monthly basis.
“Eye Care for You” is a joint programme with CLM’s optical care tenants namely Focus Point, MOG, OWL and Plus Minus Eyewear, whereby each optical care tenant provides 10 prescribed spectacles to children from selected charity homes on a quarterly basis.
It has been an annual practice since 1995 for the CLM team to host a special CNY luncheon for charity homes. This year, 100 senior citizens from Charis Sheep Pen Shelter, Persatuan Kebajikan dan Sosial Kim Loo Ting, Rumah Kasih, Rumah Orang-Orang Tua Seri Setia, and Rumah Victory Elderly Home were invited to the CNY luncheon.
