Chinese New Year Celebration with Charis Sheep Pen Shelter

In conjunction with the CNY celebration, 21 PPB staff visited Charis Sheep Pen Shelter (CSPS) in Pudu, Kuala Lumpur on 17 February 2015 to bring cheer to 26 elderly male residents there.

The event began with PPB staff and the residents of CSPS tossing the CNY dish “Yee Sang” to auspicious well wishes and blessings. Thereafter, everyone was treated to a sumptuous buffet lunch whilst being entertained with a medley of CNY songs and some golden oldies by Mrs Malaysia Chinatown 2014, Ms Jerica Chan. The event ended with the giving away of goodie bags and angpows, which brought much delight.

Established in 2004, CSPS is a shelter for homeless, poor and abandoned elderly men. CSPS is currently home to 26 elderly men who have the freedom to leave the premises during the day. The elderly men receive RM300 each from the Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat of which they contribute RM100 to CSPS to meet the operating cost. There is 1 caretaker and 2 volunteers running the shelter. For those who wish to assist CSPS, kindly contact Pastor Leong at 03-9222 1749 or 012-266 0670.

On a separate occasion, Cheras LeisureMall, owned and managed by PPB, brought 120 senior citizens from 5 welfare organisations together for its annual charity programme, sharing the warmth of togetherness in a CNY luncheon on 25 February 2015, the seventh day of CNY.

A Brighter Home for Pusate Jagaan Sri Sai

In conjunction with the Deepavali celebration, PPB staff helped to give a new coat of paint to Pusat Jagaan Sri Sai (PJSS).

On Sunday, 1 November 2015, 18 PPB staff gathered at PJSS to paint various parts of the home including the doors, grilles, balcony, storeroom etc. The children chipped in to help sand down the doors. A contractor was also hired to paint the major parts of the home, repair the damaged ceilings and staircase, and replace the toilet doors. The home certainly looked brighter and more cheerful since it was last painted 15 years ago.

After the hard work, PPB staff and children enjoyed a scrumptious buffet lunch at a café opposite the home.

Established in 2004, PJSS is a home for boys from single parents located at Jalan Kovil Hilir, Off Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur. Currently, 13 boys aged 11 to 19 years old live there under the care of two staff. The monthly expenses of the home is about RM5,000 and is funded by friends and the public. Those who wish to assist PJSS may contact Ms Meena at 017-316 3455.

Christmas Celebrations

In conjunction with the Christmas celebrations, PPB brought 47 orang asli from the Jakun tribe in Kampung Kemenceh, about 30 km from Simpai, Pekan for a movie and meal at GSC 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Petaling Jaya on 6 December 2015.

The visitors who ranged from toddlers to the elderly were served breakfast when they arrived excitedly at the cinema. PPB staff were assigned as ‘Guardian Angels’, making sure no one was unaccompanied and all were comfortable and welcomed. Our guests were treated to a screening of ’Snoopy and Charlie Brown : The Peanuts Movie’ on large screen whilst enjoying popcorn and soft drinks.

After the movie, a buffet lunch was served at the foyer of the cinema. At the end of the outing, each was given a Christmas gift which included toiletries and packed food.

Cheras LeisureMall, a shopping centre[I think the term ‘shopping centre’ is not used much now.] owned and managed by PPB, organised an annual charity campaign "Toy Bank, A Gift of Love", which enabled shoppers, well-wishers and members of the public to bring smiles to underprivileged children by fulfilling their wishes. About 2,700 gifts were collected during the programme period from 4-27 December 2015, making Christmas dreams come true for over 400 children from 13 children’s homes and charity houses.

The children’s homes and charity houses selected for the Toy Bank, A Gift of Love programme were Shepherd's Centre Foundation, Trinity Community Children’s Home, Persatuan Kebajikan Warga Tua Dan Kanak-Kanak WP, Pusat Jagaan Beribuan Kasih, Kajang, Bodhi Homecare Cheras, San Pedro Orphanage Home, Rumah Sayangan, Rumah Kanak Kanak Angels, Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Cornerstone, Yayasan Sunbeams Home, Rainbow Home, Rumah Bakti Nur Syaheera and Pusat Majudiri Y for the Deaf.

On 29 December 2015, 165 children from the said children’s homes were invited to a memorable Christmas celebration at Cheras LeisureMall and receive the gifts from anonymous donors at a gift presentation ceremony. They had an enjoyable day out with a line-up of interesting activities such as a special movie screening by GSC, ‘Legend of a Rabbit: The Martial of Fire’, a delicious lunch, caroling and dance performances, and a Hoverboard dance workshop.
