THE Klang Council of the Justice of Peace (JP) and Acmar Group welcomed the Chinese New Year by hosting a high tea for residents from old folk’s homes, orphanages and disabled individuals, at the Klang Executive Club (KEC) in Bukit Raja, Klang.

Acmar Group executive director Johnson Tee said the event was held for the fifth year.

“The programme is a meaningful one for the Acmar Group. We take the opportunity to bring cheer to the less fortunate. We also have the support of the Council of JP Klang in helping the needy,” said Tee.

Selangor Council of JPs president Datuk Mokhtar Dahlan, who was the guest-of-honour, commended the Acmar Group for initiating the programme.

“They are very committed to organising events during major festivals for the less fortunate. The Acmar Group had also invited their staff to be part of the event.

“They had artistes from Hong Kong to perform at the event. I am sure the less fortunate had a good time,” said Mokhtar.

Tee, who is also Council of JPs, Klang president, said they were committed towards initiating community programmes.

“We will also organise several other events in the next few months. Our aim is to bring together the community for healthy and meaningful activities.

The JPs council initiates efforts to distribute welfare aid through various festive celebrations to orphanages, senior citizens homes, welfare homes and other charity foundations.

“We work closely with the corporate sector, business icons, fellow Selangor Justice of Peace members, and individuals who are keen in giving back to the community,’’ said Tee.

Among the events lined up are the KEC Unity Run in April and Junior badminton championships in July.
