It was one of those times where companies give back to society, especially where they are located. Perodua contributed food, clothing, funds and volunteers to Kasih Sayang Welfare Home, located in Serendah, to help ease their burden while preparing for the upcoming Deepavali celebrations. While Nippon Paint supplied RM 9,000 worth of paints for a total home makeover. 

Mr Ragunathan and his wife, Melathy established the Kasih Sayang Welfare Home in 2003. The home takes care of the children and senior citizens. Right now, the Kasih Sayang Welfare Home is located at a single storey home which is being rented at the cost of RM 1,500 a month. The couple is assisted by 2 caretakers who also reside at the home. 

It is tough taking care of the needy. A lot of respect has to be given to the people who operate these homes.

Rawang, 30 Oct: Perodua and Nippon Paint (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd are joining forces to

give a home for children and senior citizens a makeover in preparation for the festivals

of lights.

The Kasih Sayang Welfare Home, which operates from a small house on a roadside

near Perodua Headquarters, cares for 10 senior citizens and 13 children.

The home was established in 2003 by Mr Ragunathan and his wife Mrs Malathy, the

home originally had 10 dependents, which consist of senior citizens and the couple

decided to relocate to accommodate a larger number of people.

“We recognize the selfless devotion and kindness of Mr Ragunathan and his beloved

wife, Mrs Melathy in taking care of the elderly and children. May God repay your

kindness many folds,” Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Datuk (Dr) Aminar

Rashid Salleh said.

Nippon Paint was represented by Ms Gladys Goh, the Group General Manager.

Perodua contributed food, clothing, funds and volunteers to Kasih Sayang Welfare

Home to help ease their burden while preparing for the upcoming Deepavali

celebrations. While Nippon Paint supplied RM 9,000 worth of paints for a total home

makeover.

The couple are renting a single storey home at RM 1,500 a month and is assisted by 2

caretakers who also reside at the same address.

“We thank Perodua and Nippon Paint for their generous contributions as this will go a

long way in giving a brighter Deepavali for those under our home.

“While we do our best to care for those under our charge, we hope that the general

public would assist us as we still need funds to care for those in need.”

“It is our hope that one day, we would have our own home and further add to our

numbers as we see many people would need a place to call home,” Mr Ragunathan

said.

In addition, Perodua volunteers also gave 25 orphans from the Pusat Jagaan Kanank-

kanak Divine Life Society, Kuala Kubu Bharu, Hulu Selangor, which is home for children

aged between 5 and 18, a full make over.

“The children were treated to a full day of pampering from our volunteers while at the

same time the orphans were also given hygiene tips by our trainers,” Aminar said.

Perodua also contributed cash and kind to the home in preparation for the festival of

lights. The contributions were handed over by Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd Senior General

Manager Mr Suresh Kumar.

“We hope that our contribution has had a positive impact in the lives of the people at

these organisations and we also wish to take this opportunity to wish happy Deepavali

to all who celebrate it and for those travelling to meet their loved ones this long

weekend holiday, we wish you safe journey,” Aminar said.
