Chua Yi Runs for Special Needs Children

Organization: Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah

It takes a very special heart to care for individuals with special needs, especially when those special needs belong to children who have never known a normal life. The world itself is rough place and can weigh an individual down no matter if they were born with deficiencies or not. At Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah, we established a home that houses and cares for over 92 kids with special needs including mental, health, emotional, and behavioral problems. Since 1992 we have been in charge of this home, and at times it can be tough to afford the means necessary for these individual children who were dealt a rough hand. One of our individuals who has and will probably always have severe pain from his muscles needs a unit of Digistim EMS Muscle Stimulator which will help ease his pain. Run for Hope serves underprivileged children by using sports. We run, swim, riding bicycles to help underprivileged children and those who are in need. Please visit our website http://runforhope.org.my. Chua Yi is one of our boys who are in well enough condition to join Run for Hope children training program. Although this is his first running but he understands that other children fromt Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah need his help and has dedicated his time to running. Chua is able to raise RM4768. Please visit his charity campaign here: http://www.peoplegiving.org/campaign-page?campId=137 Since Chua Yi is able to run to raise the money, he will be more inclined to do more races in the future and can make a bigger impact on the other children. By supporting one child’s dream, we can accomplish so much more and Chua Yi will then take his energy and put forth into helping others less fortunate. If we could all work together, the world would be a better place.
