Da Ma Cai staff volunteers had reached out to the needy at Malaysia Lotus Charity Care Centre Association (MLCCCA) with donation of electrical appliances, daily groceries and RM4,500 vouchers through its Staff-In-The-Community programme.
MLCCCA currently looks after 25 senior citizens of over 50 years old and 26 children aged between 1 and 17 years old. During the visitation, the staff volunteers spent time engaging with the children and old folks at the Centre, before hosting a buffet lunch for them.
Da Ma Cai also presented RM4,500 vouchers to MLCCCA to purchase groceries for the Centre’s daily use and learning materials for the children.
Fire burned down all essential items last year
“Our place was burned down in February last year and we lost all essential items. It has been tough to keep the Centre running, but thanks to many well-wishers, we are able to contonue providing to the residents here. We really appreciate Da Ma Cai for today’s warm-hearted gestures,” said Brother Michael, the caretaker of MLCCCA.
Speaking about the initiative, one of the Da Ma Cai staff volunteers said, “We are happy to be part of this meaningful Programme as it is our passion to support and help those in needs.”
In February last year, a massive fire burned down part of the Centre, forcing the residents to evacuate the premise. The blaze also destroyed most of the donated food and necessities items.
Currently, the Centre is relying solely on public funding to meet their expenses. For enquiries and donation, please contact Brother Michael at 016 – 627 7239.
