1.0 During this FMCO period, many charity outlets are experiencing financial difficulties owing to reduction in donation from the general public. We have contributed to the following five (5) Non Masonic Charities.

It now accommodates 15 abandoned old folks with difficulties or no dependence and the number is still increasing. Most elders cannot move well; some need to undergo treatment / therapy frequently. Besides taking care of them, the center also arranges transport to send them to the hospital nearby.
