As part of PPB’s corporate social responsibility initiative to share the joy of festive celebrations with the underprivileged, 17 PPB staff visited Pertubuhan Kebajikan Thangam Illam (PKTI) in Pandan Indah, Kuala Lumpur on 17 November 2016 to celebrate Deepavali with the children there. PPB organised a buffet lunch followed by some fun games which brought much cheer to the children.
Every child was given a school bag and stationery whilst the home received a microwave oven, kitchen cabinet as well as some groceries.
Established in 1990, PKTI is a home for orphans and children of poor single parents. There are currently 26 children in the home, of whom four are diagnosed with Down’s Syndrome. PKTI is managed by Ms Sasi together with three other staff. The monthly expenses of the home of about RM11,000 are funded from public donations. Those who wish to contribute to this home may contact the administrator, Sasi at 011-1636 8509.
