WEARING new clothes for Deepavali, around 40 children from the Children’s Protection Society (CPS) were all smiles as they received goodie bags from well-wishers.

The contributions were from the Lions Club of Penang Light and Penang Medical Practitioners Society (PMPS).

Organising chairman Philip Ng Nei Teik, 65, said the Lions Club of Penang Light donated to different welfare homes every year during festivals.

“This year, the CPS requested new clothes and shoes for the children,” he added.

PMPS president Dr Ajay Kumar Sharma said they do not only care for doctors but also for the underprivileged.

“Through this project, we hope to bring joy to the children here,” he said.

The 49-year-old Penang Adventist Hospital doctor later handed over a RM3,500 cheque to CPS home representative Elizabeth Julius together with Lions Club of Penang Light president Yeoh Chye Hoon.

Elizabeth thanked the Lions Club of Penang Light and PMPS for taking time off to make Deepavali more special for the less fortunate.

The children were also treated to a scrumptious home-cooked western lunch during the celebration at the home in Scotland Road, Penang.

Also at the celebration were PMPS incoming president Assoc Prof Dr B. Sivakumar and Lions Club of Penang Light committee members.
