Chinese New Year Celebration

In conjunction with the Chinese New Year (CNY) celebration, PPB staff visited the senior citizens of Pertubuhan Kebajikan Chester Rawang Selangor (PKCRS) on 26 January 2017. The visit started with tossing of the auspicious dish “yee sang”, followed by a delicious buffet lunch. The senior citizens and PPB staff played some fun games after that, and the visit ended with each senior citizen getting an angpow. PPB also installed new awnings at the home to provide shade against the direct afternoon sun.

Established in 2009, PKCRS is an old folks home in Wangsa Permai, Kepong for senior citizens abandoned by their families in hospitals; many are singles who prefer not to be dependent on their family members. Those who were abandoned were referred to the home by public hospitals such as Hospital Ampang and Hospital Sungai Buloh; others were referred by the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation Malaysia. PKCRS Wangsa Permai currently has a total of 34 residents aged 48-82 years. The home is funded mainly by public donations and their monthly expenses amount to about RM25,000.

In a separate CNY celebration, Cheras LeisureMall invited 90 senior citizens from five charity homes for a chinese casserole or "Poon Choi" luncheon on the 7th day of Chinese New Year which is known as "Everyone's Birthday" in Chinese culture. The participating senior citizens were from Charis Sheep Pen Shelter, Pusat Jagaan Rumah Love & Care Kajang, Lotus Charity Care Centre, Siri Jayanthi Metta Care Centre and Rumah Orang Tua Ampang. The God of Prosperity was also present at the luncheon bringing joy to the senior citizens and blessing them with angpows, mandarin oranges and CNY gifts.

PPB celebrates the main festivals in the country with the underprivileged to bring them cheer during festive seasons when others are celebrating with their loved ones and families.

Every year, PPB celebrates the four main festivals in the country with the underprivileged by visiting their homes or organising an outing with them or sometimes, just meeting their substantial immediate needs.

For Deepavali, PPB sponsored the purchase and installation of a 1,000-gallon water tank for New Life Care Centre (NLCC), an orphanage in Port Dickson, to resolve their water supply issues as that was their immediate need.

Established in 2007, NLCC is a home for orphans and children of poor single parents. There are currently 40 children/residents in the home, aged from 4 to 20 years. NLCC is managed by Reverend Pastor Paul and Katherine Jagatheesan with five other staff. The monthly expenses of the home is about RM25,000, which are mainly funded by public donations.

Christmas Celebration With The Orang Asli

In conjunction with the Christmas celebration, PPB brought 48 orang asli guests from the Lanau tribe living in Kampung Batu Sapi, Lenggong, Perak for an outing on 16 December 2017.

The outing began with breakfast at the foyer of the cinema followed by screening of the movie “Boboiboi”. After the movie, a buffet lunch was served at the foyer. PPB staff presented Christmas carols to its guests and were then rewarded with a special dance performance by the older orang asli girls.

PPB staff were assigned as ‘Guardian Angels’ for the event, to ensure none of its guests were left alone and all were comfortable and felt welcome. The guests went shopping with their Guardian Angels at AEON Big. Each guest was given a budget of RM80 to spend. It was a good time of shopping and our guests left the Mall carrying bags of goodies including a knapsack.

The outing provided many first-time experiences for the orang asli including venturing out of their village, watching a movie etc. It also brought PPB staff great satisfaction and joy to see their happy excited faces.
