One of the Charities that MANZA is very proud to work with is RC Deaf Mission Malaysia, founded by Agnes and Mario Peter in 2006. The Charity seeks to provide career opportunities for deaf people in Malaysia and change the perception amongst the general community of people who are hearing impaired. MANZA is a long time supporter of this very worthy cause.
Recently they have relocated their office and opened a RC Deaf Café at No 55G, Jalan SS 25/2, Taman Bukit Emas, 47301 Petaling Jaya, Selangor Darul Ehsan.
If you are in that part of the world, please do pop in for coffee or try one of their delicious meals and let them know you are from MANZA!
A big MANZA “thank you” to Kathy Richards who generously donated a fantastic wonderful great big sofa for one of our MANZA charities. As it happened, Rumah Kanak Kanak Angels (RKKA) has had “new sofa” on their wish list for a long, long time and were very happy indeed to accept this new (if slightly second hand) sofa.
And how, exactly, would MANZA get said fantastic wonderful great big sofa to Rumah Kanak Kanak Angels? Hmmmmm. Well, advertiser and supporter Crown Relocation to the rescue!
Penwiona Lee, on behalf of Crown Relocation, provided the truck for both the pickup and delivery of the sofa. Penwiona also graciously took some photos for us and reported that, although all the children at Angels were at school when the sofa arrived, Belinda (of RKKA) commented that, at last “the children would finally have a comfortable sofa to sit on!”
In fact, they’re now enjoying their brand new, slightly used, fantastic wonderful great big sofa as you read this article.
So thanks to Kathy, the good folks at Crown Relocation and to our newest staff photographer, Penwiona, from all the kids at RKKA!
The Happiness Centre Melaka, visited by 5 MANZA ladies last Wednesday is in great need of financial help.
The centre is currently caring for 31 children and young adults who have severe physical disabilities, many have multiple disabilities including cerebral palsy, spasticity, intellectual disabilities, blindness, speech impairment and mental illness.
Many have been abandoned by their family or are unable to be cared for by their family. The centre receives no Government assistance and relies on donations to continue to provide optimal care for its residents.
Donations can be made by bank transfer to Pusat Kanak Kanak Terencat Akal Bahagia, Public Bank, account number 3108010508

The happiness centre is also MANZA’s charity for fundraising for the months of June, July and August.
