With Deepavali right around the corner, Da Ma Cai through its Staff-in-the-Community programme gives back to society, by supporting Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Sosial Semenyih Sejiwa Hati (PKKSSSH), a children welfare home located in Lenggeng, Negeri Sembilan.
Da Ma Cai staff volunteers went grocery and home appliances shopping before visiting PKKSSSH. Cheeful children welcomed volunteers upon arrival at the welfare home. They also had a guided tour around the welfare home before spending quality time with the children by making Deepavali craft together.
“We recently moved from Semenyih to Lenggeng to provide better accommodation for the children. It is a lovely neighbourhood with good support from the residents here,” said the cofounder, Kavivarma.
Kavivarma added that their only washing machine was no longer functioning and was too costly to repair. Da Ma Cai’s generous donation of one large-capacity washing machine is just in time. “With the high-pressure gas stove donated by Da Ma Cai as well, our founder Dato’ Matthew now able to cook multiple dishes concurrently, definitely time-saving and more efficient,” he said.
“We always do our part by helping non-government organisations such as PKKSSSH. These NGOs are essential in giving love and hope to the deservings. This Deepavali, we organised a fun and easy Deepavali art and craft session with the children. Molding a velaku using air clay not only showcases a unity of colours during the Deepavali festive but also creates a mesmerising ambiance that brings a sense of joy and celebration for the children,” said Da Ma Cai representative.
PKKSSSH is a children welfare home for 29 children. It was founded in 2017 by two selfless individuals, Dato’ Mathew and Kavinram. It aims to protect and advocate the wellbeing of underprivileged children while empowering them with entrepreneurship values so they have a brighter future.
