Handicapped and Disabled Children's Association of Klang
These underprivileged children did not come to this world by choice. Their lives' journey was further compounded by the poor parents who could not afford to raise them under normal care and family condition due to their special needs.
So, they were admitted to this Home called HANDICAPPED AND DISABLED CHILDREN'S ASSOCIATION OF KLANG. A Home that is fully equipped with facilities to motivate, educate, groom and train these children with basic living skills so that they can be independent and be part of the society when they mature into adults.
These special children's ages range from 1 to 26 years old who suffered from DOWN SYNDROME, CEREBRAL PALSY, AUTISTIC, SPASTIC, MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY, MILD MENTAL RETARDATION, VISION IMPAIRED, SPEECH IMPAIRED, HEARING IMPAIRED, BONE ABNORMALITY and more…
And that particular 1 year old child was diagnosed with Bone Cancer…
The Centre also sends the children to various special schools such as Sekolah Khas Kanak Kanak Cacat Klang, Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Abdul Samad (Kelas Khas Menengah Pendengaran Cacat) and Sekolah Rendah Khas Kanak Kanak Cacat Pendengaran (Shah Alam) where they are taught basic reading and writing skills. However, those who are with more severe disabilities and are bedridden will not be able to attend special training but to stay at home where they are looked after by the teachers. An in-house full time Physio Therapist will conduct daily exercises and provide medication to the needy ones.
In line with the Centre's mission to run a long-term home for the Handicapped and Disabled Children, the Centre is organising a Food Fair Bazaar on 1st May 2007 from 10am to 3pm to raise funds for their new building. The Bazaar will be held at the Centre's present premise: No:4, Lorong Bunga Raya, Kampong Raja Uda, 42000 Port Klang, Selangor.
Coupons of RM10 per booklet can be purchased from the Centre. Alternatively, you may want to sponsor your products for sales in the bazaar or even consider setting up a stall to promote your products. Your contributions in anyway can make a difference in these special children's lives for "You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person."
Life for them is simple and it does not take much to make them happy. While we can never fully understand their world, let us reach out to make their world a better place.
