PETALING JAYA: The late Datin Paduka A. Mangalam leaves behind a legacy of compassion, service and devotion to humanity, says Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye.

In a statement on Sunday (June 11), Lee said he was saddened by the news of the passing of A. Mangalam - fondly known as Mother Mangalam - on Saturday (June 10).

"She will be deeply missed by members of the Pure Life Society of which she was the esteemed Life President and all the people whose lives she has touched as a mentor, teacher, spiritual leader and a friend over the last six decades," said Lee.

He added that he has known Mangalam since the early 1980s.

Lee said Mangalam was responsible for establishing numerous orphanages, schools and medical centres to serve the marginalized and disadvantaged.

"We are forever grateful to you for the gift of your presence in our lives. Rest in peace, dear Mother Mangalam," he said.
