Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) flagged off a delivery convoy at the Menara MPS lobby in Batu Caves recently in conjunction with its Program Masih Ada Yang Sayang 2021 project.

“This annual programme is held to visit communities in need, such as orphans, senior citizens and the disabled, and to provide aid to relieve the expenses borne by welfare homes under MPS,” the council’s Corporate Communications director Mohamad Zin Masoad said in a statement.

“The MPS convoy presented cash contributions of RM1,500 and household necessities to each of the 10 welfare homes they visited.

“These homes house a total of 408 residents and are located across nine state constituencies under MPS.”

The convoy of seven vehicles was led by MPS president Mohd Yazid Sairi and deputy president Cheremi Tarman.

They were accompanied by MPS Community Development Department director Affendei Samingan and MPS councillor for Zone 7 Deveandran Selvaraju during their visit to Pertubuhan Perkhidmatan Sosial dan Pembangunan Komuniti Daerah Gombak in Batu Caves.

The association’s founder and chairman Henry Sandanam took the group on a tour of its facilities and briefed them on its activities.

Mohamad Zin said the contributions to the other nine welfare homes were distributed by the respective zone councillors and MPS staff.
