THE Bandar Country Homes Residents Association (BCHRA) is planning to organise more crime prevention programmes to keep their neighbourhood safe.
BCHRA chairman Soong Beng Khoon said the association would hold talks with the police to curb crime as many snatch thefts and robberies had been reported in the area.
He added that the police have always been very supportive of such initiatives and BCHRA would suggest ways to combat crime.
“We want residents to feel safe living in Bandar Country Homes.
“We are also looking at organising a health campaign so that residents can undergo a full health check,’’ said Soong at BCHRA’s blood donation drive launched by Selayang MP William Leong.
A total of 122 people donated blood to the National Blood Bank at the association’s building in Bandar Country Homes, Rawang.
Organising chairman Tee Sew Hua said the community spirit among residents was strong.
“BCHRA committee members meet every month to discuss ways to make their township a cleaner, safer and healthier place to live in.
“We also have a list of past blood donors and invite them each time we organise a campaign.”
This year the association spent about RM5,000 to hold the campaign.
A total of 20 students from SMK Taman Desa and SMK Rawang helped to register and assist the donors.
Among the main sponsors for the campaign were Mahumas Sdn Bhd, Lafarge Malayan Cement Bhd
(Rawang plant) and LTY Food Services Sdn Bhd.
