Uda Angsana Sdn Bhd had contributed RM10,000 to JEiWA for Rumah Kanak-Kanak Mini Ulu Tiram

Last December, Persatuan Pemerkasaan Wanita Intelektual Johor (JEiWA) received a donation of RM10,000 from Uda Angsana Sdn Bhd as a contribution towards Rumah Kanak-Kanak Mini Ulu Tiram.

President and Founder of JEiWA, Nor Fadilah Mohamed Nizar is also the Chairman of the Rumah Kanak-Kanak Mini Ulu Tiram’s Visitor Board. The appointment of Nor Fadhilah by Dato’ Seri Hajah Rohani Abdul Karim, Minister of Women, Family and Community Development of Malaysia based on the Children Act 2001, is also an advantage to the JEiWA Association as JEiWA is not just an organisation that organises programmes for empowering women but is also active in creating children’s empowerment programmes.

Rumah Kanak-Kanak Mini (RKK Mini) was established in 2015 under the Social Welfare Department and Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development. RKK Mini was created to provide care and protection to the less fortunate children, promoting physical, emotional and mental development in a healthy and safe environment. The Home houses a maximum of 30 12-year-old girls who were victims of physical, mental and sexual abuse. The children are also among the victims of neglect due to parents involved in crimes such as drug mules, drug abuse and other cases. Sadly, the home also cares for babies who were dumped.

Through the donation from Uda Angsana Sdn Bhd, JEiWA spent time with the children of the Home by shopping for school essentials at Tesco Bandar Sri Alam Johor. The surplus balance of the donation money was used to open a bank account and also to facilitate the public to donate towards the Children’s Home. Therefore, people who want to channel their donations can bank in straight to RKK Mini Visitor’s Board account via 551137524242 (MayBank). If you have any inquiries regarding Rumah Kanak-Kanak Mini Ulu Tiram, you may contact JEiWA directly at [email protected] or contact RKK Mini’s Principal, Pn Hasmah via email at [email protected]
