Trainers and the students at the In-Community Rehabilitation (PDK) Centre in Precinct 14, Putrajaya, received contributions from the Federal Territories Ministry.

Given under the ministry’s Semarak Kasih programme, the assistance comprised cash, goodie bags and specialised equipment for the centre which imparts life and self-management skills.

The students are children with special needs.

Each trainer and student received RM100 and a goodie bag filled with necessities such as rice, sugar, salt, instant noodles, canned sardines and condensed milk.

Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim said the programme was one of the initiatives for Federal Territories Day 2022.

“We aim to leave no one behind.
