Can you provide the names of OKU/Disabled home you
know that need help ?
Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-kanak Cacat
31 Jalan SS 3/39, Petaling Jaya.
Light green painted house with brown gate. I think
it houses some forty inmates, young to older ones.
The above home is near my house. Their DVD player is no
longer working, so I took it for repair. However, it is an old
model, does not support MPEG-4, and the repairman quoted
me at least $40-50, but that is only if it is a more common
fault like a worn motor.
I think the laser is burnt out, since I can hear the motor running
but it is unable to read any discs. Thus it will definitely cost more
than that, making any repair unfeasible.
If you or your friends may be able to donate a newer one to
them, that would be nice. I download movies from the net and
burn them for my nephews quite often, so I could do the same
for these disabled kids at the same time.
However, most of these movies from the net are in MPEG-4 AVI
format, which only the newer DVD players can read.
The above home is actually a branch, and their HQ is in Taman Megah,
where there are some 70 kids housed in four homes.
You may of course also help these homes if you wish.
Their quoted website, http://www.ppkkctm.org
, is not functioning.
Maybe some IT man here can help them to bulid one.
Incidentally, their caretaker here has the same surname as me !
Under the "Income & Expenses" page in the PureCharityHub site,
it costs some $60,000 monlty to run the homes. The rental for the
SS3/39 branch alone is $4,500.http://www.purecharityhub.com/TamanMegahhttp://1month1charity.blogspot.com/2011/03...acat-taman.htmlhttp://ppkkc.ruumz.com/Causes/Default_Ori.aspxhttp://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=127406297308349http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qi...03204448AAHTfMGhttp://www.purecharityhub.com/images/tmega...he_center_1.jpg
