THE Community-Based Rehabilitation for the Deaf Penang (PDK) has received more than 350 books from the Lions Club of Georgetown Perdana for its new library.
Lions Club of Georgetown Perdana organising chairman Lee Siknee said they were approached by the PDK in January to launch a book collection drive to obtain books for the centre’s new library.
“The children had very few educational books before this,” Lee said when handing over the books to the PDK centre in Persiaran Sungai Gelugor in Penang recently.
The PDK centre was set up in August 2010.
It serves as a day care and kindergarten not just for hearing and speech impaired children but also for those with autism, cerebral palsy, and Down Syndrome.
There are five PDK centres on Penang island.
One is located in the northeast district while the rest are located in the southwest district.
PDK chairman Chung Kim Cheong said the centre was open to parents who have children with disabilities.
“They can send their children to PDK centres.”
