Mahanum's Untiring Noble Work......
Despite ominous rains and thunderstorms, we made our annual trip to Mahanum’s orphanage in Chenderong Balai on Sunday, 4th November 2012.
This time we were joined by Tan Sri Nuraizah, daughter Azrein, son-in-law Rastam, Dato’ Salleh Yeop and wife, Datin Khadijah, Tan Sri Hau Kiang. Our evergreen teacher Uncle Selvamany joined us from Ipoh, together with Keith Yoong.
Mahanum briefed the group about her activities and her plans for the future. Before lunch we celebrated Mahanum’s (belated) birthday (which was on 23 October). After lunch we toured the premises and were treated to a presentation by students of SMITA, Sekolah Menengah Tahfiz Al-Amin.
Several donations were made to Mahanum (by Dato’ Seri Dr Selvamany, Tan Sri Nuraizah Hamid, Dato’ Salleh Yeop and the ASI 66/67 group) to encourage her to carry on this noble work.
We departed after the rains stopped.
