09/06/2002 - A group of
residents from USJ23 assembled along USJ23/2 this Sunday morning for the
short drive to The Pure Life Society (Homes for Orphans & Underprivileged
Children) located at Batu 6, Jalan
It was both a Sunday family
outing and doing our small part for Charity. Parents who brought their
children along saw first hand how orphaned, abandoned and underprivileged
It was indeed a wonderful
experience for the privileged children of USJ23, a wakeup call not to take
their sheltered and pampered lives for granted. We congratulate those
parents who brought their children along for this eye opening experience.
We were informed by the Administrator, Mr A. Atputharaja, that there was
a total of
113 children (100 Indians and 13 Chinese) housed at the home, the older boys
are housed in separate quarters, a little further down the road. The daily upkeep
which included, food, lodgings and education, amounted to
about RM7-8 each.
Residents were given a full tour of the Home after which our Chairman, Yee
Foon Kong handed on behalf of the USJ23 Residence, our donation of
RM1,500.00 to Mr A. Atputharaja.
