It is heartwarming to hear about Perkeso’s efforts in organizing a grand Deepavali public banquet in Ipoh to share joy with the unprivileged. The fact that the HRD Minister, V. Sivakumar, presided over the event, highlights the significance of such initiatives. The donation of three kidney dialysis machines is a commendable step, especially considering the increasing number of patients undergoing kidney dialysis in Malaysia.
Minister Sivakumar’s statement about installing these machines in Perkeso’s group kidney treatment centers to accommodate more patients reflects a proactive approach to addressing the rising health challenges faced by Malaysians. The statistics about Malaysia having one of the highest numbers of kidney disease patients in the world is alarming.
It is reassuring to know that the Ministry of Human Resources, through Perkeso, is actively involved in providing assistance to the working class tackling these health issues. The distribution of the donated kidney dialysis machines to the National Kidney Treatment Trust Center and the Wo Pong Siang Chia Society underscores the commitment to reaching out to different organizations working towards similar goals.
Perkeso’s involvement in various self-motivation, awareness, and counselling programs to promote a healthy lifestyle among workers is a holistic approach. Additionally, providing cash gifts to destitute children and mothers living alone, as well as assisting social welfare organizations in the Ipoh area, showcases a broader commitment to community welfare.
The celebration of Deepavali with traditional Indian dances and music adds a cultural touch to the event, making it a memorable and joyous occasion for all Malaysians. Perkeso’s dedication to organizing such festivities not only spreads happiness but also fosters a sense of unity and togetherness among the community.
In summary, Perkeso’s multifaced approach, ranging from healthcare initiatives to community support and cultural celebrations, reflects a comprehensive commitment to the well-being of underprivileged individuals and the broader Malaysian society.
