Volunteers from The V took the initiative to organise it’s Interdepartmental SSR activity recently under the banner of RYTHM Foundation to give an old folks’ home in Kuala Lumpur a makeover.
Established in 1994, Susheela Care Center provides care for the elderly, disabled, mentally ill and currently houses 27 senior citizens.
Upon arrival, 50 volunteers were briefed on the background of the home before being divided into groups tasked with cleaning and painting. The SSR makeover activity saw unwanted items being cleared, the living room, doors, and grills were given a fresh coat of paints. The task was completed under 8 hours giving the home a fresh look for its residents.
The volunteers’ contribution of time and effort were exemplary to what RYTHM stands for; Raise Yourself To Help Mankind.
