Employees Reach Out
PPD employees in Malaysia decided to help the Persatuan Kanak-Kanak Istimewa (Home of Special Children), Hulu Langat (PKKI), a nongovernmental organization that operates a training center for children who are mentally and physically challenged.
Currently PKKI serves 90 students, ranging from toddlers to teenagers. These children are supported by 22 teachers and staff. PKKI has three separate centers and is raising money to build one comprehensive center. Building and combining all the centers into one will provide better facilities catered to the needs of the children.
The organization has an annual Junior Camp that the employees in Malaysia worked with the PKKI staff to coordinate. Employees contributed two swimming pools, water toys, teaching aids and gifts for the camp.
