The foundation of a Centre for the special needs children
in Malacca begins early 2000. The need to expand rises as our Centre in Johor
was getting overcrowded and also because there were a number of special children
who could use our service in Malacca.
Soon, we have found a double story bungalow in Bukit Baru. The place was ideal
as it is quite big and the compound is spacious. A few changes about the house
were necessary. So, it was renovated, Iron grills were fixed around the upstairs
balcony to avoid children from climbing over. Two extra bathrooms were built and
wooden fencing by the stairs was also necessary for the inmate’s safety.
In May 2000, we started our operation. There were only 10 inmates at that time.
The person in charge was one of our senior staff from Johor. She imparted her
knowledge, expertise and experience to the attendants taking care of the
The number of our inmates grew gradually. Now, we are hosting 55 inmates. Our
home was officially opened on 20th April 2002 by our Malacca’s Chief
Ministers wife, YAB Datin Seri Hajah Asmah Bt.Abdul Rahman.
