Alor Setar Visits Home for Special People

On 9 March 2020, the Inner Wheel Club of Alor Setar visited the ‘Pusat Khidmat Setempat OKU’ in Bedong. Kedah, which is a day care centre for the differently abled and special children and adults. Here, they are taught self-management and basic living skills. IW Alor Setar members had the opportunity to mingle with these special people and conducted a round of fun zumba with them.

Members were given a briefing by the management on how the Centre is managed and run and how the children learn to sew and sell their handicraft. After that, they enjoyed a delicious lunch, courtesy of IW Alor Setar.

These special children/adults seem to cope so well in spite of the numerous obstacles and discomfort they face. Spending a day with them made us realise how lucky we are and we found ourselves being thankful for the life we have. It is something that we often times forget to do and get a memory jolt only when we visit centres like this. A big thank you to management for having us.
