KLANG: Children in the Sri Sai Pandian shelter home in Setia Alam will be receiving a big treat on Oct 24 when the Raja Muda Selangor Tengku Amir Shah pays them a visit.

The visit by the Raja Muda and Selangor Youth Community (SAY) volunteers is in conjunction with the upcoming Deepavali.

“We looked at a few homes and the Raja Muda decided on this one because they were in need of things such as tables, shelves and cupboards,’’ said SAY chief executive officer Izhar Moslim.

Tengku Amir and the volunteers will purchase the items required and fix them at the home themselves.

“After that the Raja Muda will take the children on a trip to Sunway Lagoon in a chartered bus for some fun activities followed by dinner before sending them back,” said Izhar, adding that these were the kind of people-centric activities that the Raja Muda wanted to initiate in the state through SAY.

Yayasan Raja Muda Selangor executive director Aminah Abdul Rahim said Tengku Amir was passionate about helping youths.

The home’s founder, Pandian Sundaresan, said he was overwhelmed with the Raja Muda’s generosity.

“I see it as a blessing and hope for a new beginning,’’ he said, adding that he had been struggling to manage the home for the past few years.

There are 30 residents aged between eight months and 22 years, two single mothers and a senior citizen at the home.

The Raja Muda will return to Selangor today after having left the state for a week upon his proclamation as Crown Prince on Oct 8.
