It is sad that a charitable organisation established in 1964, is in danger of closing. It is SAMH (Selangor & FT Association for the Mentally Handicapped). This centre trains / teaches / finds employment / caters to lower income families with children of mental disabilities. ACG members, Jane & Umi Kalsom visited the centre a weeks ago and was impressed at their Paper Rattan baskets & other handicraft sections, aimed at training the students to be self-reliant, eg,. able to sew buttons and repair torn clothes, make the bed, etc.
We found that these students are very focused in their work, very helpful & respectful of their teachers. Here are some of the photos of our visit there.
Items from here will be on sale at the Eco Craft Partee's Handmade Market @ Parkamaya, fahrenheit88..27-28 April and 11-12 May 2013.
