Community Activities in Janda Baik

Visit to orphanage - Rumah Kebajikan dan Anak-Anak Yatim Nur Zaharah at Kg Sum Sum Hilir.

On the evening of 12/10/2006 at 6.15 pm, in the holy month of Ramadhan, KSSE (Kelab Sukan & Sosial Elektrisola) organized a breaking fast activity together with the orphans at Rumah Kebajikan Nur Zaharah (Orphanage) in Janda Baik. Altogether 20 members from EM participated in this activity to spent and cherish a memorable evening with the orphans. Even though there were not many orphans but however we were touched by their simple life. A part of their building was still under construction. The Orphanage Manager gave a short briefing about the orphans and we were reminded not to ask the orphans anything sensitive related to their personal life. After breaking fast, all of us went for the congregation prayer, read the ‘Yassin’ and did the ‘terawih’ prayer. At 10:00pm we left the orphanage with mixed feelings; sad and grateful that we are not orphans… yet.

To those who would like to contribute some donation can directly contact the Manager of Rumah Kebajikan Nur Zaharah at this address:

Another community activity done by Elektrisola Malaysia (EM) staff is to help upgrading the Bukit Tinggi police station.

On December 4, 2006, a cheque presentation of RM1,000.00 was held in a simple ceremony to the Head of Bukit Tinggi Police Station, S/Insp. Tuan Mohd Saad Bin Haji Osman, as part of EM contribution in upgrading the Bukit Tinggi Police Station. Besides than the cheque, we also supplied flowers and plants for landscaping, paints and together with EM contractors, EM sponsored some of the building works and repairing materials.

It is our aim to make EM to be part of the local community and together contributing and building for the betterment of everyone in Janda Baik and Bukit Tinggi.
