JOHOR BARU: An organisation that is helping disabled children received a boost when Star Foundation donated RM20,000 to build a sensory room at its centre in Taman Johor Jaya here.
Johor Disabled Children Charitable and Cares Organisation founder and president Yahya Haidrus, who is wheelchair-bound, said the contribution was timely. “A sensory room is a special room designed to develop a person’s senses, usually through special lighting, music and objects and is used as therapy for children with limited communication skills. “The centre houses 20 residents, whose ages range between two months and 36 years old. A total of 15 are living full-time here,” he said.
