In conjunction with the celebration of Deepavali, Da Ma Cai through its Staff-In-The-Community (SITC) program reached out to Selangor Family Aid Association (SFAA), a welfare centre for the aged and disabled located in Ulu Yam Bharu, Selangor.
The SITC program saw Da Ma Cai employees volunteering for the meaningful community service initiative. Residents at SFAA were excited as they met the volunteers, from the look on their faces, all residents have a story to tell. The hall of the centre turned lively as the volunteers spent the morning engaged in conversation with the residents.
After the fun interaction session, volunteers gathered at the kitchen for lunch preparation. A sumptuous and nutritious briyani set lunch was served to all residents at SFAA.
In the spirit of festive sharing and giving, Da Ma Cai contributed cash vouchers worth RM6,500 to SFAA to alleviates its financial burden.
“We appeal to the society sympathetic and humanitarian sentiments to provide us donation or sponsors for the underprivileged members under our care. My gratitude towards visitation and generous support offered to our Centre,” said SFAA Chairman Mr Pusparajah Gunaratnam.
Da Ma Cai volunteers said, “In this festive of joy and togetherness, we are happy to be part of this meaningful program to make even the smallest differences and help those in needs.”
Established in 1988, SFAA currently provides care to 95 multi-racial individuals. As many of the residents are elderly or disabled requiring constant medical care, the centre is always looking for funding to improve the livelihood of its residents.
