Batu Gerakan Service Centre Coordinator, Dr Dominic Lau Hoe Chai said that the objective of the programme was to allow the members of these disadvantaged groups to feel the atmosphere of the festive season, so that they could feel for themselves the love and care of the society and be warmed.

“During the programme, I distributed angpows to all attendants along with a few kind-hearted people, what is worth mentioning is that Sentul Pasar, Jalan Sentul had given some daily necessities to senior citizens during Persatuan Perayaan Por Toh Sentul Pasar. The Batu Spring Festival activities had successfully rounded in warming and touching atmosphere,” added Lau.

In regard to this, Lau called for the public to show more concern towards disadvantaged groups in the society. The event is also a part of the “I love Batu” programme promoted by Batu Gerakan. Gerakan will continue to serve Batu people especially the disadvantaged groups, to solve their livelihood problems and to improve their quality of life.
