Medical camp for poor pupils

UPHOLDING one of the basic tenets of freemasonry, namely charity, Lodge Tullibardine conducted a free medical camp recently for the pupils at SRK(T) Ladang Lanchang, located within an oil palm estate just after Karak in Pahang. 

Members of the Lodge from the medical profession offered their services. In addition to medical, dental and eye check-ups, each pupil was also given a month’s supply of vitamins and calcium tablets, delousing medication and on-the-spot de-worming treatment.  

In addition, Perfect Food Manufacturing Sdn Bhd donated biscuits for the children. 

The medical camp was a follow-up to an earlier charity project for the school where the Lodge funded the construction of two classrooms and provided tables and chairs for the pupils and teachers.  

It also donated school uniforms, socks, shoes and school bags to all 50 pupils. In all, about RM13,000 in kind was donated to the school.  

District grand master Neoh Ho Keat said in going to the root of the problems faced by the less fortunate, freemasonry was able to address and help alleviate some of the ills prevalent in society today. 

Lodge Tullibardine is one of three Scottish lodges in the Klang Valley. This year it celebrates its 90th anniversary.
