THE Lovely Disabled Home charity bazaar successfully raised RM102,991 for its expansion plan fund, exceeding the target of RM100,000.

This is a big step towards the establishment of a daycare centre for special needs children.

Lovely Disabled Home plans to set up the daycare centre to allow more parents to have a place to temporarily accommodate their children with special needs.

Home founder Lum Kok Kiang thanked the people who supported the event as it proved the home was recognised by the public.

He hoped Lovely Disabled Home would continue to gain public support, implement and maintain the operations of daycare homes, and give special needs children hope and direction for the future.

“We hope the special needs children can assimilate into society,” he said, adding that the home still needed public support for its operations.

The daycare centre will be established in the former special children’s workshop of Lovely Disabled Home in SS2, Petaling Jaya, and run as a non-profit establishment.

The charity bazaar was held at NZX, Petaling Jaya, which had 40 stalls selling various items including food.

Malaysian singer Chng Shyue Chung, the ambassador of the charity bazaar, put up a performance with other singers and the home’s music class members.

Founded in 2005, Lovely Disabled Home is a non-profit, non-governmental charity organisation that aimed to provide job opportunities and to enable people with disabilities to integrate into society.

The charity set up a workshop and a recycling centre in 2006 to provide jobs for people with disabilities.

There are currently about 50 members with disabilities in the workshop.

They carry out packaging work under the training of instructors, mainly packing utensils for fast food takeaways, wristbands for hospitals, and paper bags.

The recycling centre currently has about 15 members, and its work includes door-to-door collection and sorting of recycled items.
