Annual event for People With Disabilities

Recently, my office together with assistance from Sunway Pyramid and City Care put together a party for people with disabilities in my constituency. About 50 of them attended the party, each accompanied by their loved ones. In my speech, I announced the achievements made for people with disabilities in the last 12 months:-
I have raised these issues in the Selangor State Legislative Assembly after last year's dialogue with people with disabilities in Subang Jaya. I am glad that their needs are being met. I will continue to work on:
  • a special vehicle for them;
  • forming a special committee for disabled in Subang Jaya; and
  • the State Government to provide a special allocation for higher educational training for children with special needs.
In my speech, I also encouraged other residents to see people with disabilities as individuals first, each with their special gifts, before defining them by their disability.

My office gave out JUSCO vouchers worth RM80 for each of them to shop at Sunway Pyramid.

Apart from receiving shopping vouchers, they were also treated to spectacular performances and goodie bags sponsored by Sunway Pyramid.

Lunch was provided for all them. Chin Kit and Azizul were also present to join us!

Young people from City Care volunteered their time to serve and also to provide transportation for our friends with disabilities. Thank you to Sunway Pyramid, volunteers from City Care and Suzanna from my office for making the event a big success! You can read more about the event from the Star , NST and Sinar Harian.

Dear Hannah:

Very wonderful and thoughtful of you to come up with such things for the disabled.

God bless you and have a blessed 2010. Seek ye first the kingdom of
God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you. Matt 6:33

I knew our late friend Carol Rasiah, and I'm sure your efforts to make life easier for the disabled are making her smile down from heaven. :) God bless!
